North Carolina founded super chicken chain Bojangles is teaming up with Appalachian Mountain Brewery to bring us Hard Sweet Tea.
According to the famous fast-food chicken restaurant, the drink will be available at retailers (but not the restaurants) starting in March of this year.
With the tagline, “brewed like we mean it” it promises to bring on good times that we won’t be able to remember!
“This collaboration is something sweet,” said Jackie Woodward, Chief Brand and Marketing Officer for Bojangles. “Partnering with AMB to craft our Legendary Iced Tea into a hard tea for fans of legal drinking age was a natural fit, and the team poured passion into the entire process. We can’t wait for fans to try it!”
The release said it will be available in 12 or 16-ounce cans and in 12-packs. It’s expected to be available for purchase beginning in March in the Carolinas at stores such as Circle K, Sheetz, Harris Teeter, Walmart and Food Lion, with sales expanding to other states at later dates.
“AMB couldn’t be more excited to collaborate with such an iconic Carolina company,” said Nathan Kelischek, AMB Founder and Brewmaster. “Bojangles sweet tea is a staple across the South and has earned its ‘legendary’ title. AMB has always been dedicated to making the highest quality craft beer and cider, and the same can be said for this authentic Bojangles Hard Sweet Tea. We are excited to continue to share our craft in innovative, new ways.”
Probably a good idea to not make it available through the drive thru.
