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.

River Rat Kerry’s Peanut Butter Porter
It has become an instant hit already. Karl Strauss’ Peanut Butter Cup Porter was first released in 2012 and 80 kegs were killed in 5 days. With more on the way, Karl is bringing a 40 barrel batch to Los Angeles Beer Week this year. That’s 80 more to last the week.
The beer is brewed with chocolate and caramel malts with some peanut powder. Cocoa nibs are added for extra chocolate flavor. The final product is roasty porter flavor with a smooth chocolate and peanut butter finish.
The brewery plans on bottling this in the future. (The next whale for sure.)
