Beer Chips

beerchips.jpgIt was only a matter of time until someone got the ingenious idea to combine beer and potato chips into one snack. Beer Chips start with a very tasty, thick, crispy, kettle-style chip that would, no doubt, taste great even without any flavoring. Then, sugar, salt, honey, and beer are sprinkled on them. Eating them, you donít really get the impression that they are covered with beer. Instead, you taste some sweetness and some maltiness that may remind you of a quality beer. Itís a unique flavor that I really enjoy. Those who like beer will probably like the taste of Beer Chips, and even those who arenít beer drinkers will probably enjoy them too because of the mild beer flavor they have. Donít worry about eating too many chips and getting tipsy Ė they contain no alcohol. Beer Chips have limited distribution so you may not be able to find them easily, but you can order them online at

Just an update for your posting...I've seen these in our local chain of grocery stores in East Central Indiana, so they are going outside of Cali. Haven't tried them yet, but will now that I saw your review!

I found these (along with margarita and bloody mary chips) at a grocery store in Eastern Ohio.

The margarita chips are good too.

you must try Intoxi-Tators Especially Spicy Bloody Mary flavored chips and they also have Margarita flavored chips. I tried Beer chips and I thought they were yummy...but their Bloody Mary and Margarita are yucky. Check out

Hi! I tried these at the Brewfest in Portland this year, yum! For fun, I have pics of the girls handing them out dressed like the chips! Let me know if you want - they're pretty good. Thanks!

I love Beer Chips! They are the best chip out there! I used to buy them all the time but now that the WinCo foods in Oregon doesnt sell them, there is nowhere to get them :(

Beer Chips are AWESOME. I bought a bag at a grocery store in Central IL, and I destroyed it within 48 hours. The seasoning is a perfect mix of sweet and salty, and the chips are satisfyingly crisp- they're very crunchy, without feeling overly greasy.

Highly recommended.

Beer Chips are the best! Far superior to any other chip. Tried the Blood Mary version...disgusting.
