Heavy Seas Beer is excited to announce the release of, World Famous, a Pilsner brewed in collaboration with Royal Farms. World Famous was created to celebrate Royal Farm’s wildly popular Chicken Palooza event as it enters its third year. World Famous will be available for a limited time in the 40 Royal Farms stores that carry beer and wine throughout Marlyand, Virginia, and Pennsylvania this July. This beer will also be available during a curbside can release at the Heavy Seas brewery from June 26th-28th.
Two Baltimore neighbors set sail to make history. Heavy Seas and Royal Farms have teamed up to create World Famous Pilsner — a beer brewed to pair perfectly with Royal Farm’s World Famous fried chicken. This crisp, clean pilsner tastes even better with RoFo fried chicken and Western fries. A match made in B’more heaven — start your voyage today!
“I am a huge fan of RoFo chicken and have found a crisp, clean lager to be the perfect style of beer to compliment the subtle spice and yes, unctuous deliciousness, of a RoFo breast or wing,” says Heavy Seas Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard. “We’ve added a touch of citrus flair to the aroma and flavor of this pilsner-style lager with the deft addition of Citra hops late in the boil and in the fermenter. At 5.0% ABV, it pairs beautifully with Royal Farms chicken, yet has just enough complexity of flavor to be enjoyable on its own.”
“When Heavy Seas came to us with this idea, we got so excited! Heavy Seas is known for creating delicious and creative varieties of beer, and we are known for our ‘World Famous’ fried chicken. The fact we are both Baltimore born and based was the icing on the cake. Both teams came together to design the beer in person to ensure it really does pair perfectly for our RoFo and beer loving customer.” Says Shelby Kemp, Marketing Project Manager for Royal Farms.
World Famous will release in 6 packs of 16 oz. cans at the Heavy Seas brewery Friday, June 26th thru Sunday, June 28th. For more information, visit: hsbeer.com. Chicken Palooza begins at Royal Farms July 1st. For more information, visit: royalfarms.com.
