The Bruery store in DC was a lot smaller than I thought it would be. But, it had a huge selection of beers that I had never seen before and some cool looking merch. It’s also right by Union Market, which is a huge market with different food and beverage vendors. The best thing I had there were these steamed buns, which I would definitely go back for.
Style: Fruit/Vegetable Beer
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “What’s better than splitting a PB&J sandwich with your favorite buddy over lunch? How about sharing this PB&J-inspired beer instead? This lunchtime ale was brewed with lactose; with peanut flour, boysenberries and salt added.”
Random: As a child, I loved peanut butter and strawberry jelly sandwiches. I was very averse to grape jelly.
The beer poured with a thick, slight pink tinged head that was two fingers high. It took awhile to dissipate and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a murky reddish-brown color with no visible carbonation. The nose started with peanut butter and transitioned into red grapes, berries and some toasted malt. The taste started with peanut butter and then went into berries and grape jelly with a slight coffee note as well. There was a white bread note present too. The body was medium thickness with moderate carbonation. It had a lengthy and sticky finish with peanut butter and grape jelly. This was an interesting beer for sure, but it delivered what it promised. I enjoyed it, but this wouldn’t be a beer that I would want to have constantly.
