I know it’s heresy but chicken wings don’t really thrill me all that much but a brand new beer, now that I can get behind.

From COTU:

The brewers from Center of the Universe Brewing have been working tirelessly to develop an exclusive beer for the Kickin’ Chicken WingFest on October 18th at the 17th Street Farmers’ Market. The Southern Berry Blonde (4.5% ABV) is a hybrid German-style blonde ale infused with a berry blend tea. This beer will tickle your tastebuds and quench your thirst after a spicy plate of wings. You will not want to miss the ONLY opportunity to try this delicious craft beer! ‪
