As many of you in the Boston area may already know, one of our earliest craft beer companies, Pretty Things, has bid adieu. We were sad to see them go. Not only did we lose their delicious Jack D'or in our Beernut Bar, but more importantly, we lost a company that we felt played a big part in the early growth of Boston's local artisan "food" movement. Enjoy and cheers to the adventure that lies ahead for the Pretty Things folks. We’ll miss you! ?
We wanted to continue celebrating the amazing craft beer scene in New England by retooling our Beernut Bar recipe with a few different locally made beers to create the soft, complex caramel that surrounds salty peanuts inside dark chocolate. After weeks of tastings, we chose Newburyport Brewing Company’s Newburyport Green Head IPA and Jack’s Abby Smoke and Dagger Black Lager. Both packed the perfect flavors to blend with the peanuts and dark chocolate.
We are pleased to re-introduce the Beernut Bar! While Foodnetwork.com called this snack “a day at the ballpark”, we think these would also make outstanding one-of-a kind gifts for any occasion including Father’s Day, grooms’ gifts or for anyone who enjoys craft beer.
And to make it the perfect Boston-themed gift, add a Boston Icon Box with your order.
