Featured Pairing:


This decadent twist on a robust porter packs rich layers of smooth peanut butter and dark chocolate flavors. Brewed with cocoa nibs and natural peanut flavoring.


Smoked pork belly, beer-braised with fennel, carrots, and garlic and topped with celery root mash, melted cheddar, and sweet potato tater tots.

Sure, our Peanut Butter Cup Porter goes great with dessert. But like mom always said, "no dessert until you eat your smoked pork belly and tater tots!" (Your mom said that too, right?) Well luckily for you, the beer also pairs great with savory dishes. The robust peanut butter flavors enhance the smoked pork belly, while the sweet malts complement the celery root and sweet potatoes.
