Nothing pairs more perfectly with a thirst-quenching beer than a salty snack. That’s why bars across the country put out tiny dishes of bar nuts, a move that both satisfies patrons and makes them crave more of beer’s thirst-quenching abilities. Planters decided to offer that snack and the refreshment with the release of Mr. IPA-NUT. The IPA gives off hints of honey-roasted peanuts and offers a slightly salty finish. It’s still a modern American IPA, however, so expect big citrus notes up front courtesy of the Wakatu and Citra hops used in its creation. Brewed in collaboration with Noon Whistle Brewing, Mr. IPA-NUT is available at select Binny’s Beverage Depots throughout the Chicago area.
