Will’s Dills are the result of musician Will McCranie’s
passion for all things pickled. The story goes that in
the summer of 2012, a bloody mary party was in the
works, and it seemed simply inconceivable to serve
store bought pickles for the occasion. In his shoebox
of an apartment in Sunnyside, Queens, Will quickly set
out to create a test batch of spicy habanero dills that
would later be named “Devil Dills.” He also acquiesced and concocted a non-spicy batch
that would eventually be known as “PG-13s”—the perfect garlic dill.
Fast forward a few years, including a relocation back home to Augusta, the pickle project returned with a vengeance. Will enlisted three of his closest friends and, in addition to the Devil Dills and PG-13s, the team introduced a new flavor of sweet heat pickles called Backwoods B+Bs. Shortly after, Savannah River Brewing released a limited edition pickle beer using Will’s Dills PG-13s called “Wit is the Dill?”
Will’s Dills can currently be found in select stores in the CSRA, including The Southern Salad, and the team can often be found slinging dills at pop up events in the area.
