Sticky Situation: Peanut Butter Stouts

It’s Peanut Butter Stout Time, Peanut Butter Stout Time! We’ll stack up four peanut butter stouts in a taste-off to find out which is the peanut-butteriest while Ryan educates us on the history of adjuncts and how peanut butter is added to the brewing process. We’ll also give some on hot takes on Reinheitsgebot and our opinions on what stout adjuncts are acceptable to drink. Lastly, we’ll bring you up-to-date on our HTOWN brewery challenge as we recap trips to No Label, Local Group, 11 Below, Gordon Street Tavern, and Holler!
