TOLEDO, Ohio — If you like peanut butter, and you like beer, you'll love this week at Earnest Brew Works.
Starting Tuesday, the brewery will be jam-packed with peanut buttery goodness as the taps will be taken over by a plethora of nutty beers.
Not only will the bar's kegs be filled with three peanut butter beers, but special firkins will be tapped throughout the week. Here's a look at just some of the sweet flavors you can expect:
- Peanut butter ice cream sundae
- Peanut butter marshmallow and chocolate
- Peanut butter raspberry
- Peanut butter strawberry jam
As one firkin blows, another will be tapped.
This marks the third year of Peanut Butter Week at Earnest. Owner and brewer, Scot Yarnell, said that the event began as a way to get people up and at 'em as they begin to thaw out from the cold Midwestern winter.
"January is so blah, and no one really feels like doing much after the holidays and everything. When February starts, people start to come out. But, we thought, 'We really need to do something special,'" Yarnell said. "So, we started making these firkins and we thought, 'Why don't we just dedicate a whole week to this peanut butter?' Because everyone seemed to really love the peanut butter."
