Directions:
Open beer and discard (or drink) 1/3 of it. Stand the can in a large roasting pan. Add the bay leaf and poultry seasoning to the beer. Wash the chicken thoroughly and discard giblets. Pat the chicken dry and set it on top of the beer can - so that the can is holding the chicken upright. Place the potatoes wedges around the bottom of the pan, drizzle with olive oil and lightly season with salt and pepper. Roast at 400 degrees for 45-50 minutes. Check chicken leg to see that it moves easily to assure that the chicken is done.
