The snack connoisseurs at Planters have teamed up with Illinois’ Noon Whistle Brewery to introduce a new brew, dubbed Mr. IPA-Nut, that builds on the long-standing pairing of peanuts and beer. In addition to special edition packaging, this collaboration furthers the savory bond with a beer recipe that uses actual planters snacks.
Mr. IPA-Nut is brewed combining 800 pounds of Planters snacks with Citra and Wakatu hops, creating a citrus aroma with a hint of honey-roasted peanuts, finished with a slightly salty endnote. The 16oz can packaging sees the famously-monocled Mr. Peanut character in a classic yellow and blue design.
Planters’ Mr. IPA-Nut beer is available for about a month only starting on October 26, exclusively in Illinois. Head over to Noon Whistle Brewery’s site to see the stockist list.
