In case you’ve been living under a rock, one of the popular food trends we’ve seen restaurants across the year in 2020 is Nashville Hot Chicken. But there is another kid on the block with an oriental twist. Coated in a thick crust of crushed corn flakes, oven-roasted, and finished with an alluring sweet and spicy Korean inspired BBQ basting. This mouth-watering chicken is a sure-fire crowd favorite.

Serve with a side of fragrant steamed rice and stir-fried veggies for an easy dinner that’s delicious with a twist. I consulted LA-bred beer cicerone Harley Rogers for a red hot recommendation on pairing a frothie with fiery Korean chicken. “Why not offer your guests two options. Bring the heat with a bitter, hoppy IPA or tone it down with a quenching saison or an amble ale”. Broaden your inventory and guest offering with a variety of styles and you're bound to win some regulars. We couldn’t think of anyone better to help you live out your quarantine chicken fix and beer experience than California-based home keg dispensary King Keg.
