Peanut Butter Porter
The Newest Tap Room Series Installment
It’s been an exciting new year, with the introduction of our Citra Pale Ale as a new year round canned beer and the return of our Belgian Style Pale Ale. But, we like to keep our fans on their toes, so we’re going to keep the releases coming this year. We’re happy to announce our first Tap Room Series beer of 2017, a Peanut Butter Porter!
What is the Tap Room Series
For anyone unfamiliar with our Tap Room Series of beers, they run parallel to our Lee Hill Series and are released eight times a year. Rather than focusing on complex, barrel aged beers like our Lee Hill Series, the Tap Room Series highlights some of the favorites that we serve on draft at our Boulder tap rooms. These limited releases are brought back to both of our tap rooms, as well as canned in our signature topographic 19.2 oz bomber cans. We also brew them in larger batches, so these popular beers are available for a bit longer to give our fans a chance to try some crowd favorites.
Upslope Peanut Butter Porter
Our new Peanut Butter Porter started out by slightly tweaking a tried and true Porter recipe that the staff loves for a new twist. The bold and dark malts used offer a rich sweetness and a touch of roastiness. The slight amount of hops accent the roasted flavors to balance the beer out. For the peanut butter flavor, we focused on a distinct roasted peanut taste to mingle with the sweetness of the Porter. The result is a robust peanut butter beer that is primarily a great porter, but with a sweet, nutty flavor, creamy texture and slightly salty finish. This reinvention of our Peanut Butter Porter is sure to be a hit with beer nerds… and anyone with sweet tooth!
While this beer has plenty going on, it clocks in at a sessionable 5.3% ABV and 30 IBUs. That way, it won’t slow you down on your winter adventures while its robust flavors will pair perfectly with the slopes or the lodge after!
Peanut Butter Porter Release
Join us at either tap room on Tuesday, February 14th for the release of our first Tap Room Series beer of 2017. Peanut Butter Porter will be available all day on tap or in 19.2 oz cans to go. We’ll see you there!
