Peanut Brittle Ale – Arizona Wilderness Brewing


From Arizona Wilderness Brewing in Gilbert Arizona comes their “Peanut Brittle Ale”.  The beer pours an orange brown colour with a tan head.  The aroma consists of peanut, lots of nuts, caramel and some mild roast.  The flavour is of peanut butter, creamy nuts, caramel, toffee, vanilla and sweetness.  The alcohol content comes in at 7.4% with an IBU of 20.  There is no doubt in my mind that this beer tastes like peanut brittle.  I am really happy I got a can of this from the Hoppy Craftsmen Podcast in trade.

Commercial Description:  So yeah, we’ll admit it, we are some momma’s boys around this brewery. Not long ago, Patrick’s mother (“Momma Ware”) brought in some homemade peanut brittle. We went on a backpack trip and the crunchy, caramely, peanut butter goodness was the “best thing we’ve had in our lives” – or so it seemed with the cold and fatigue. It was a challenge to ourselves to recreate the delightful brittle. We used a combo of malts, lactose sugar, and dried peanut butter to nail down that color and flavor.

Dirty Hop Water: Last Living Dinosaur – Arizona Wilderness Brewing


From Arizona Wilderness Brewing in Gilbert Arizona comes their “Dirty Hop Water: Last Living Dinosaur” a Cloudy Double IPA.  The beer pours a murky orange colour with a white head.  The aroma consists of orange juice, pineapple and basically just juice.  The flavour is of orange juice, pineapple, citrus rind, some herbal notes and a mild bitterness.  The alcohol content comes in at 8.2%.  With a great mothfeel this beer is really tasty and I am so glad I was able to get a can from the Hoppy Craftsmen while in Arizona.  These cans sell out extremely fast!

Commercial Description:  What the hell is “Dirty Hop Water?”  First off, it’s proof that humulus lupulus is God’s gift to beer.  It’s also proof that the all powerful hop is still craft beer’s king.  This series combines the hazy proteins of AZ grown unmalted grains with the most badass, aromaticaly driven hops in the world.  The result is this murky, juicy, tropical smoothie-esque hop bomb.  We Won’t make this D.H.W. rendition ever again.  Like, ever.  You’re special if you were able to grab a sip of this can.  Enjoy!  Cloudy India Pale Ale with Eureka, Callista and Belma Hops.
