That gets me in trouble…
Most of the North Carolina news you’ll be reading all day has just announced that Charlotte-based restaurant Bojangles, a fast-food chain famous for its fried chicken and cookies, has teamed up with the Appalachian Mountain Brewery joins forces for a new hard sweet tea.
Appalachian Mountain Brewery is based in Boone, North Carolina but is now owned by beer giant Anheuser-Busch following a merger in 2019.
The new brew is expected to hit shelves in March, with 12-packs, 12-ounce cans and individual 16-ounce cans available.
It will be available at independent retailers and chains across North and South Carolina including Circle K, QT, Sheetz, Spinx, Harris Teeter, Ingles, Lowes, Walmart and Food Lion, with more to be announced.
As a sweet tea snob, I can honestly say that Bojangles has some of the best teas in the fast food business (I’ve tried everything, believe me), and AMB is known for their incredible, award-winning craft beer, so I can’t wait to try their new preparation.
Bojangles Chief Brand and Marketing Officer Jackie Woodward says it was a natural fit for the two Carolina brands to work together:
“This collaboration is something sweet.
Partnering with AMB to process our iconic iced tea into a hard tea for fans of legal drinking age was a natural fit and the team put passion into the whole process. We can’t wait for the fans to try it out!”
Bojangles is already the ultimate hangover cure, and throw in any of these bad guys for some dog hair, it looks like this has the potential to be a life-changing product:
“This is going to be legendary! Bojangles Hard Sweet Tea, available Spring 2023 throughout Carolina. Collaboration between @appalachianmountainbrewery and @bojangles.”
White Claw does not know what will hit her…
It’s the launch of a new southern delicacy and I’ll definitely be stocking up for game day next college football season.
It’s never too early to start planning, is it?
Here’s a look at the fancy new cans:
