UK peanut butter brand ManiLife has teamed up with Brixton Brewery to create Nuts + Bolts, a deep roast peanut stout.
The drink, whose name refers to peanuts (nuts) and the ‘bolts’ of Brixton Brewery’s branding, was developed by Brixton brewer Martin Wollerstam, who also designed the can. The brand’s imagery focuses on the drink’s imagined twin production processes – peanuts becoming peanut butter and barley becoming beer – before fusing into the Nuts + Bolts drink. The drink, which is a limited edition, comes in at 5% ABV.
“There are already a few peanut brews on the market,” said Brixton Brewery co-founder Jez Galaun, “so we really wanted to create something unique and different with this limited-edition stout. The guys at ManiLife are real taste masters which really sets this one apart from the rest. We went through lots of trials with the recipe but have landed on a batch that we’re super proud of. It’s malty, smooth and has that distinctive peanut flavoured finish that we know people will recognise and love.”
“Quality and great taste have always been paramount for us,” added ManiLife Founder Stu Macdonald, “and the creation of this stout was no exception. We’re used to uniting people around the dinner table through a shared love of great food and flavour and can’t wait to do the same with this! ManiLife has been taking inspiration from traditionally craft categories since our inception so to work in beer, let alone with the absolute visionaries at Brixton Brewery, was a real honour!’
Nuts + Bolts is available from Brixton Brewery’s tap room, or from its online shop, in 330ml cans at an RRP of £2.75.
