A personal favorite of mine and one of the best values in all of craft beer. Bursting with flavors of dark cocoa and espresso, I can’t recommend this dynamite imperial stout highly enough!

Nutcase Peanut Butter Porter

Listermann Brewing Company | Cincinnati, OH

ABV: 6.7%  |  IBU: 28  |  Rating: 93 points
PRICE: 
$11.99  |  4-Pack Bottles

Listermann’s Nutcase Peanut Butter Porter is a year-round beauty. It’s been recognized nationally and even won a bronze medal at the 2016 Great American Beer Festival. This beer is special because instead of using peanut butter flavoring oils, the brewers use PB2, peanut butter powder. This gives the beer a strong peanut flavor that doesn’t taste artificial. I am including this one in our February picks because it makes a great “beertail” that you can mix at home for Valentine’s Day! Simply combine 1 part Nutcase with 2 parts MadTree Rubus Cacao. This combo tastes like a liquid Reese’s Cup with a subtle hint of raspberry on the finish. Try it and let me know how you like it!

Rubus Cacao Stout

MadTree Brewing Company | Cincinnati, OH

ABV: 7%  |  IBU: 12  |  Rating: 93 points

PRICE:$11.99  |  4-Pack Cans

This is a sweet stout that hits hard with strong chocolate flavors on the nose! However, I fell in love with this beer because of the raspberry finish. It’s perfectly balanced, super flavorful, and very well done. Try making a “beertail” with ⅓ Listermann’s Nutcase and ⅔ Rubus Cacao for a treat!
