Press Release: Beer Chips® scores a touchdown with distribution in Fred Meyer stores

Pac-10 fans gearing up for college football season have another reason to cheer: Beer Chips are available for a limited time in Fred Meyer stores across the Pacific Northwest.

A local Portland-based company, Beer Chips are thick-cut kettle style potato chips coated with a major dose of beer, followed by a generous glazing of sugar, honey and salt. These satisfying goodies offer a serious snacking respite in a world of whole-grain, low-carb and low flavor snacks.

According to figures from the Snack Food Association, sports parties are the ultimate snacking feasts. That’s great news for Beer Chips founder Brett Stern, who likes to point out that there is no better snack pairing than beer and potato chips. He adds, “Beer Chips allow snackers to truly multi-task while watching the game and enjoying their favorite beverage with good friends.”

Beer Chips are packaged in a 2-oz individual serving, 5-oz snack bag, 9-oz party bag and a larger-than-life-size 20-oz package. They come in three flavors to satisfy all palates: the original Beer Chips, Chips Shots® (margarita with salt potato chips) and Hot Potatoes® (spicy Bloody Mary potato chips).

All three flavors of Beer Chips will be sold at Fred Meyer at a special price of three 5-oz bags for $5. They can be found in the specialty aisle for a limited time, so get them before they’re gone!


By really thinking hard one afternoon, the inventor of Beer Chips created a technical beer-o-vation breakthrough. The company harvests only the freshest cans of beer from local beer trees, then squeezes out all of the beer juice to create its proprietary flavor recipe. The resulting snack is a virtual party in the mouth, delivered in a shiny golden amber bag. Beer Chips are distributed in 25 states and Singapore.
