Mushroom Mania, new drinks hit local Wings Etc. stores for a limited time starting in September

Fried Baby Portabella Mushrooms, a new Mushroom Swiss Diner Burger, and seasonal beverages available for a limited time at local Wings Etc. Grill & Pub locations through Dec. 24, 2021

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Sept. 15, 2021)—It’s Mushroom Mania at Wings Etc., and for a limited time, baby bellas are back! From now until Dec. 24, Wings Etc. Grill & Pub is offering Fried Baby Portabella Mushrooms and a new Mushroom Swiss Diner Burger. Also for a limited time, guests can celebrate the season with a Vizzy Hard Seltzer, Blue Moon Light Sky, or Samuel Adams Octoberfest.

Wings Etc.’s Fried Baby Portabella Mushrooms are cooked crispy and come served with creamy ranch for dipping. The baby bellas are portioned into bite-sized pieces for sharing (or for keeping all to yourself).

The Mushroom Mania extends to a new limited-time diner burger. The Wings Etc. Mushroom Swiss Diner Burger is made with thin crispy-grilled burger patties with melty swiss, stacked on a grilled brioche roll, and topped with sautéed mushrooms and garlic aioli.

Both Wings Etc.’s Fried Baby Portabella Mushrooms and Mushroom Swiss Diner Burger pair perfectly with limited-time drink offers—Vizzy Hard Seltzer, Blue Moon Light Sky, and Samuel Adams Octoberfest.

Vizzy Hard Seltzer isn’t just another hard seltzer—it has antioxidant vitamin C! With natural flavors like strawberry kiwi, pineapple mango, blueberry pomegranate, and black cherry lime, the 100-calorie drink is sure to quench guests’ thirst during the remaining days of summer.

Blue Moon has introduced a new, light, and refreshing wheat beer: Blue Moon Light Sky Citrus Wheat. This 95-calorie beer is brewed with real tangerine peel for a lighter, exceptional taste.

Fall is nearly here—celebrate with a Samuel Adams Octoberfest beer. The rich, hearty, and smooth lager is the perfect beer for mild weather and is only available from August to October. Get it before it’s gone!

While Samuel Adams Octoberfest can be found in Wings Etc. locations through October (or while supplies last), Vizzy Hard Seltzer and Blue Moon Light Sky will join Fried Baby Portabella Mushrooms and the new Mushroom Swiss Diner Burger on the limited-time menu from Sept. 7 through Dec. 24.

Wings Etc. Grill & Pub reminds guests to please drink responsibly.
