DOWNINGTOWN, PA, June 9, 2014 – Two local Pennsylvania companies have joined forces to create the ultimate in cheddar cheesy, craft beer goodness. Victory Brewing Company® (Victory), the popular Philadelphia-area craft brewer, and Key Ingredient Market, the Bath-based producer of fresh dips and spreads, introduce three cheddar cheese spreads blending specialty Wisconsin cheddar with best-selling Victory beer brands. Victory Cheddar Spreads will be available mid-June in Whole Foods Markets in Northern New Jersey, New York and Western Connecticut, as well as Victory’s’ Downingtown retail store. Distribution will expand in August to include Whole Foods Markets in the North Atlantic region.
Retailing at $6.99, Victory Cheddar Spreads merge the fresh, quality ingredients and long-standing traditions of both companies to create interesting flavor profiles for cheese and beer advocates alike. Flavors include HopDevil Cheddar Spread – bold and balanced flavors of HopDevil® Ale are the perfect foil to jalapeños and chipotles in a creamy cheddar base; Headwaters Cheddar Dip – a unique, yet perfect, blend of pineapple, papaya, ginger and curry with the crisp, clean essence of Headwaters® Pale Ale; Golden Monkey® Cheddar Spread profiles the spicy, herbal qualities of the light-bodied, full-flavored beer with the classic, creamy tang of cheddar.
“Collaboration has always been one of the cornerstones of the craft beer movement because it breeds a creative, passionate environment where the possibilities for growth expand infinitely” said Victory’s President and Brewmaster, Bill Covaleski. “It makes perfect sense to unite with an equally passionate company, Key Ingredient Market, to create the delicious sum which we hope everyone will enjoy, of two, compatible parts.”
