Created to commemorate “Royal Farm’s wildly popular Chicken Palooza event as it enters its third year,” World Famous is a “crisp, clean Pilsner . . . brewed to pair perfectly with Royal Farm’s World Famous fried chicken.” Although it can be thoroughly enjoyed on its own, World Famous Pilsner (5% ABV) “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.
