WITH chicken now crowned as Britain’s favourite meat, Brewhouse & Kitchen in Bournemouth has relaunched its popular Beer Can Chicken but with a new twist.

The menu favourite has been updated for the summer and can now be fully customised, from size, to sauce, to sides.

Coated in a special dry rub, the chicken is roasted over a can of Brewhouse & Kitchen American Pale Ale to keep the meat tender and moist and now comes with a choice of three different sizes, three delicious sauces and more than a dozen different sides.

Choose from a quarter, half or a whole chicken and sauces ranging from garlic beer butter, bar-beer-que and a spicy sriracha & honey beer sauce and all of which are made using beer.

The chicken is served to guests alongside their chosen sauce in a beer can, so guests can pour as much or as little as they like on the chicken.

As with the rest of the menu, Brewhouse & Kitchen recommend a suitable beer pairing and recommend an American Pale Ale, brewed on-site to go with the Beer Can Chicken.

There are also 12 sides to choose from, ranging from skin on fries to lemon & garlic broccoli to mac n’ cheese.

A Brewhouse & Kitchen spokesman said: “The company has been focused on delivering outstanding experiences ever since its foundation in 2013. Not content with resting on their laurels, it has continued to expand, evolve and improve.

“This dish really encompasses the value of experience by placing the power in the hands of guests, building a dish that they, their friends, their family and their fellow diners can share together.

“Brewhouse & Kitchen are focused on letting their guests take control and build their own dish as now, guests can create their perfect meal with an array of sides to choose from, including craft lager battered onion rings, Portuguese pea rice and corn cobs with chilli butter.

“Other new dishes include moules frites cooked in rich house made wheat beer sauce and a passionfruit Eton mess with whipped cream and fruit coulis. With 21 vegan and vegetarian dishes and the fact that a large number of beers that are brewed on site are vegan, there is an option for everyone.”
