Catawba Peanut Butter Jelly Time is like drinking a piece of your childhood. If you haven’t tried it, you have another chance starting this week.
Brewed with raspberries and aged on peanuts, this beer should take you back to a simpler time. Before bills, acne breakouts, and hangovers. (That last one depends on how much of this nostalgia you take part in…) New for 2017, the beer is available in 16-ounce cans.
Does it taste like a sandwich? Pretty much. Brewing with peanut butter and the sugar blob that is jelly isn’t the greatest of ideas. The base beer is a roasty brown ale, aged for weeks on fresh raspberries and peanuts. What makes this beer even more fun to drink, is the arc of flavor you get as it warms. Colder, this beer tastes like peanut butter. Warmer, more sticky jelly notes appear. Because Peanut Butter Jelly Time is a brown ale instead of a stout, it really is a smooth, childhood reminiscent, comfort beer.
When your mom packed a PB&J sandwich in your school lunchbox, the flavors all melded into pure comfort food by noon. Well, we recreated this childhood goodness in a beer! This light brown ale is brewed from five different grains and then aged for weeks on raspberries and roasted peanuts. Take a sip, let flavors mingle on your palate, and enjoy our PB&J in a glass.
Catawba Peanut Butter Jelly Time! is available in 16-ounce cans in the tap room starting Friday, March 2nd. All of Catawba’s markets will begin receiving the release the first week of March.

The Bruery PB & Jelly Thursday will be available to the Reserve Society members in 2018.
The “Weekday” Series is home to Grey Monday, Black Tuesday, and Mocha Wednesday, each of variable rarity. Last year The Bruery’s Reserve Society was home to PB & Thursday, a variant of barrel-aged Black Tuesday brewed with peanut flour. Basically peanut butter Black Tuesday.
Next year, Reserve Society members can claim The Bruery PB & Jelly Thursday. This sandwich inspired spin on Black Tuesday is brewed with peanut flour, boysenberries, and salt. The end result has to be the most alcoholic peanut butter and jelly sandwich every made (in beer form) clocking in at 19.2% alcohol by volume.
It won’t stick to the roof of your mouth, but it will impart layers of peanut character and fruity sweetness to the bourbon notes of our revered, barrel-aged imperial stout.
The Bruery PB & Jelly Thursday will be available in 750-milliliter bottles only to those in the Reserve Society in 2018.
Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Peanut Flour. Boysenberries. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 750ml Bottles.
The Veil Brewing’s Hornswoggler, a chocolate milk stout brewed with an ungodly amount of Oreo cookies was ridiculous. When you poured the beer, little icing chunks flowed into your glass. Today, the brewery takes things a step further.
There are folks out there that dip their Oreo cookie in peanut butter. For those indulgent dessert lovers, The Veil Brewing Bourbon Pecan Peanut Butter & Oreos is brewed for you.
Using the brewery’s chocolate milk stout, the beer has been conditioned on not only hundreds of pounds of Oreo cookies, but Reginald’s Homemade Bourbon Pecan Peanut Butter as well. A win-win for lovers of cookies and peanut butter.
The Oreos edition from January was RIDICULOUS. It was as close to drinking a liquefied cookie as you can get (without actually liquifying a cookie). Dessert Beer is sacred to us at Beer Street Journal, and The Veil ups the ante with this edition. The peanut butter takes the lead, over the Oreos, but they are far from subtle. It’s hard to stop smelling the glass.
Due the fact the beer has been aging this beer on sugary cookies, extra fermentable sugars have been introduced to this beer. If you find yourself lucky enough to possess this mother of all dessert beers, keep the cans cold and drink fresh. Trust us on this one.
A little over 120 cases of The Veil Brewing Bourbon Pecan Peanut Butter & Oreos will be available when the brewery opens at 4 pm.

Coffee meets chocolate meets peanut butter. DuClaw Sweet Baby Java is ready for the big time.
To date, the Maryland based brewery already has two peanut butter beers in their arsenal. The first – Sweet Baby Jesus!a, a chocolate peanut butter porter. Sweet BJ’s success opened the door for an even stronger brew peanut butter concoction, For Pete’s Sake. Both are a dream for peanut butter lovers. This spring, look for DuClaw Sweet Baby Java.
A few years ago, brewery founder Dave Benfield was at a beer event where Sweet Baby Jesus! was run through a Randall (think of it like a French Press of sorts) filled with coffee beans. The discovery he saids – was awesome.
The roasty flavor of coffee, peanut butter, and chocolate blended perfectly. We quickly kicked a half barrel. Since then we’ve regularly paired coffee with Sweet Baby at DuClaw events.”
Since that day, the brewery has been experimenting with various methods of infusing coffee in order to bring this beer into full production. A few dozen batches later, DuClaw Sweet Baby Java was ready for the big time.
Look for Sweet Baby in 12 ounce bottles and draft through spring, 2017.

Peanut butter lover? Put this on your drink list. DuClaw For Pete’s Sake is back in action as of today.
The brewery has two peanut butter infused beers. This all got started with Sweet Baby Jesus!, a 6.2% alcohol by volume porter, brewed with chocolate and peanut butter. That beer was/is an instant classic.
Why stop there, when you can make the beer stronger. That’s where DuClaw For Pete’s Sake came to be – an imperial chocolate peanut butter porter. Everything about this beer is rich. A mouthful of chocolate and peanut butter, with a warming 9% ABV finish.
…silky, full body, big roasted malt flavor, and aroma dominated by rich notes of peanut butter and chocolate…
DuClaw For Pete’s Sake is the last seasonal release by the brewery in 2016. Available in 12 ounce bottles and draft.
