Planters Is Now Making Peanut-Flavored Beer
If you grab a handful of bar nuts every time you order a beer, Planters wants to save you a step. As Thrillist reports, their appropriately-named Mr. IPA-Nut combines the flavor of honey-roasted peanuts with hoppy pale ale.
A collaboration with the Noon Whistle Brewing company, the special beer marks Planters' first-ever foray into the craft brewing world. Despite the punny name, this beer is no joke: It's made with wakatu and citra hops, making for a salty-sweet-bitter flavor profile that should appeal to some serious beer aficionados.
"Mr. IPA-Nut delivers a citrus aroma and a hint of honey-roasted peanuts, all followed by a slightly salty finish that makes every sip worth savoring," Noon Whistle Brewing writes in a press release.
Picking up a pack of the special-edition beer won't be easy for everyone: Starting October 26, it's only available at select beer and liquor stores in Illinois and at the Noon Whistle Brewery in Lombard. If you can't make it to Illinois, check out these other unusual brews sold around the world.
