I brought you a peek, and now this from Elysian:

SEPT. 21, 2022 (SEATTLE) When Elysian Brewing began the seasonal journey to brew its much-celebrated pumpkin beers, things took a surprising turn… for the worse.    zzubreebym

*Cue unsettling horror movie music*

The brewery – a typically clean, orderly place – was thrown into chaos one frighteningly memorable brew day. Grain bags slashed open, spilled and spoiled after hitting the floor. Gourd guts and pumpkin seeds coated surfaces in a mushy mess. Someone (or something?) had made its way into a batch of cranberries, splattering the floor in blood-red footprints.

An Elysian brewer set out in pursuit of this unknown menace only to be confronted by their worst nightmare: Chucky. The infamous killer doll wreaked havoc at the brewery only to narrowly escape the brewer’s grasp by jumping into the brew tank. Do we think the beer is now possessed by Chucky? Absolutely. 

Nothing screams Halloween quite like Chucky, so Elysian Brewing has partnered with USA Network and SYFY ahead of the second season of the hit TV series to release CHUCKY: A Killer Wit Beer (5.3% ABV). Just like the devious doll, this pumpkin witbier with cranberry will be your friend ’til the very end. Saturated with blood-red cranberry juice and entangled with pumpkin mangled into a puree, the beer is light in color with spine-chilling flavors of chamomile and cinnamon – the perfect combination of everything you love about the season. Are you brave enough to try a haunted beer this fall?

“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. “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.”

About‌ “Chucky”

“Chucky” is a continuation of the iconic film franchise chronicling the murderous escapades of the notorious killer doll. In the TV series, Chucky crosses paths with archenemies, old allies and new prey, as he seeks to inspire fear and mayhem wherever he goes. After his diabolical plan to invade America’s children’s hospitals was foiled in season one, Chucky now seeks revenge on those he holds responsible: surviving teens Jake, Devon, and Lexy along with his ex Tiffany, now his sworn enemy. Meanwhile, can “Jevon” make it as a couple in the face of adversity at their new Catholic school, not to mention a brand-new onslaught of terror from the demon doll?

The series is produced by UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, and executive produced by Don Mancini, Nick Antosca, Alex Hedlund, David Kirschner and Jeff Renfroe.
