A new creation from The Bruery was inspired by the flavors of Jeni’s Salted Peanut Butter with Chocolate Flecks ice cream.
Hold the Spoon is an 8.8 percent ABV imperial blonde ale brewed with cacao nibs, lactose, peanut flour and salt. The recipe for the ale has been in development for months, and was created “with the simple goal of conveying the wonderful experience of eating Jeni’s Ice Cream in… beer form,” according to Andrew Bell, innovation manager at The Bruery.
“This was a fun project collaborating with a great craft company from another industry,” said Bell in a press release. “Jeni’s Salted Peanut Butter with Chocolate Flecks was one of our favorites from the start. It has a bold roasted peanut butter character that is balanced with the creaminess from the dairy, just the right amount of sugar and a surprising salty edge that really made you want to get another spoonful.”
According to The Bruery, Hold the Spoon will be packaged in 16-ounces cans ($5.99) that will be released at the Bruery Terreux Tasting Room as well as online on March 6.
