Hoppy Hazy IPA Chicken Skewers

  • Prep: 10 mins to assemble, 1-4 hours for Marinade
  • Cook: 12 mins on grill

These Grilled Hoppy Hazy IPA Chicken Skewers are a perfect combination of juicy chicken and flavorful vegetables, marinated in a delicious mixture of an Idaho hazy IPA beer, Idaho honey, and spices from Idaho producers. The hazy IPA beer adds a subtle hoppy and citrusy note that complements the smoky flavor from the grill and enhances the overall taste of the dish. We recommend you use an Idaho Craft Beer IPA for freshest flavor.
