Hormel Is Releasing Chili Cheese-Flavored Beer

If you’ve ever been sitting down thinking drinking would be a better way to consume a bowl of chili, you might be in luck. Tuesday, Hormel announced its Chili Cheese Beer, a new beverage favored like the company’s flagship products. A collaboration between Hormel and  Modist Brewing Co. to craft the lager.

Modist is using Minnesota Pilsner barley malt and flaked corn chips as the drink’s base before adding chili seasoning and cheddar cheese powder to mimic the flavors of Hormel Chili Cheese Dip.

“Football season is just as much about the game as it is about delicious food and drinks, and the people you enjoy watching the game with,” Hormel brand manager Jason Hron offered in a press release. “This year we were inspired to bring fans together and create something everyone can agree on – an irresistible sip that unites the best flavors of our famous HORMEL® Chili Cheese Dip.”

The drink is now available for purchase on the Hormel website, retailing for $24 for a four-pack of cans. It’s expected the beers will be ready to ship before the NFL’s Super Bowl LVII on February 12th.

“The makers of Hormel Chili teamed up with brewers at award-winning Modist Brewing Co. to create an unexpected sip inspired by everybody’s favorite dip for this real-life, totally delicious collaboration. With a little bit of madness and a serious amount of chili-inspired spices, the beer is now ready for fans’ taste buds,” the chili-maker says of its new product. “How can beer taste like chili cheese dip? The crushable American lager features Minnesota Pilsner barley malt and flaked corn. With this delicious corn chip-flavored base, Modist Brewing Co. added a mix of savory spices and hints of cheddar cheese powder to bring the flavors of Hormel Chili Cheese Dip to life.”

The beer is available as supplies last.
