Marcus Friari, manager of the company,explained: A beer of the highest quality deserves a top-quality snacks, which is why we have made a huge effort to produce the most exclusive french fries in the world “.
The chips are packaged in a box that contains just five of those, and each is personally cooked by a chef, using special ingredients of the Scandinavian regions: the Swedish forests fungi, seaweed of the Faroe Islands, dill from Bjäre peninsula, onions grown in the heart Sweden, and obviously hops, the same used to make beer. potatoes also, of course, come from a particular crop that is characterized by rocky hills (which prevents the use of modern agricultural tools and forces to cultivate potatoes by hand).
The brewery has produced only a limited number of these special chips, but despite the exorbitant price they were sold out in a very short time: The chips had so much success that it might be possible, that the brewery decides to produce more in the future.
