Bojangles teams with Appalachian Mountain Brewery to launch alcoholic sweet tea

CHARLOTTE — Move over White Claw, here comes Bojangles.

The Charlotte-based chicken shop that’s also known for its biscuits and sweet tea is now entering the adult beverage world. Bojangles announced on Tuesday that an alcoholic version of its popular sweet tea is coming to stores soon.

Bojangles Hard Sweet Tea is getting mixed up in a partnership with Boone-based Appalachian Mountain Brewery.

The drinks will be available in 12-packs of 12-ounce cans along with individual 16-ounce cans. For some of you, they’re basically taking a step out of your pregame tailgating routine.

According to Bojangles, the tea will hit store shelves in March. You’ll be able to find it at stores like Harris Teeter, Food Lion, Walmart, and convenience stores.
