Who says candy’s just for kids? We’ve teamed up with the legendary Pearson’s Candy Company
, located right here in Saint Paul, to bring you Nut Goodie Porter
, a porter aged on chocolate, peanut butter, and maple to mimic the flavors of their classic Nut Goodie
The idea was to create something uniquely Saint Paul-oriented. Every Minnesotan knows Pearson’s Candy, and every Saint Paulite is familiar with their headquarters along West 7th. Originally created as a variation of our Lecky Scottish Ale, this Nut Goodie-inspired infusion sold out of our taproom in just two days.
The original promo shot of our first infusion batch.
The first iteration of this infusion recipe as a porter, released for our 4 Year Anniversary Party in June.
At last, we’ve finally graduated this beer from a taproom infusion all the way to the Spark Series
. Coming in at 6% ABV and a smooth 30 IBU, cans of this rich, decadent brew will start hitting liquor stores shelves across the metro between October 8th and the 19th (don’t worry if you can’t find it right away, we’re already brewing more).
The Nut Goodie Porter Tap Release
is Friday, October 12th here in our taproom, where will have free Pearson’s Nut Goodies
available with a pint purchase while supplies last, as well as food from the Freedom Truck
, the new truck from the non-profit Stories Foundation
that fights human trafficking here in Minnesota. As an added treat, each pint of Nut Goodie purchased will come with a Golden Raffle Ticket for a chance to win a private tour of Pearson's Candy Company
with up to 4 of your friends! We'll draw the winner at 8pm (must be present to win).
