Ahead of the season-two premiere of USA Network and Syfy’s Chucky, the NBCUniversal-owned networks have partnered with Seattle-based brewer Elysian Brewing on seasonal brew called Chucky: A Killer Wit Beer. The 5.3% ABV pumpkin witbier includes cranberry juice and flavors of chamomile and cinnamon.
“Just like Chucky is synonymous with Halloween, Elysian’s pumpkin beers have become synonymous with the season. Seeing Chucky’s iconic, freckled face on our cans feels like a match made in… ah… hell,” said Joe Bisacca, Elysian Brewing’s co-founder, in a statement. “This release is exactly what makes brewing pumpkin beers interesting. You can iterate with so many styles using the same common gourd ingredient, like we do with the beers in Elysian’s Pumpkin Variety Pack. Chucky: A Killer Wit Beer is super drinkable and light, we think that it’ll be enjoyed by a wide variety of palates. From the blood-red cranberry to the cinnamon notes, this limited-edition wit encapsulates many of the fall flavors our drinkers love.”
Chucky: A Killer Wit Beer is a limited release brewed in celebration of all things Halloween, horror and season two of Chucky, which continues the film franchise about the murderous escapades of a notorious, knife-wielding killer doll.
“Chucky is one of Halloween’s most iconic, beloved characters and we have found the perfect partner in Elysian Brewing to capture his spirit this season,” said Ellen Stone, executive vice president, entertainment consumer engagement and brand strategy, NBCUniversal Television and Streaming, also in a statement. “This custom pumpkin beer provides a fresh, unique way for fans and beer fanatics alike to quench their thirst with a taste of Chucky ahead of the season-two premiere.”
Chucky: A Killer Wit Beer is available now at select bars and retailers throughout the country.
Season two of Chucky premieres Wednesday, October 5 at 9 p.m. ET on USA and Syfy.
