Here's the thing about Peanut Butter beers. Ever have a peanut butter knife or spoon get wet and sit in sink for a day? It's that same rank-ass-nasty smell in every peanut butter beer I have ever had the misfortune to try. There is a local brewery down here making a peanut butter porter and it is undrinkable and nasty. OTOH some people go absolutely bonkers about it. So who knows.

Rule #1 for me: I will not have a peanut and butter sandwich without a cold glass of milk to wash it down with. That right there should tell you that those flavors don't belong in beer. Period. Ever.

aren't you in SoFlo? - might want to go have a pint (er taster glass) of that at the brewery or around town - it is nice for a sip, but I don't think I could drink a full pint.

NoFlo...haven't had that beer yet, but went to Funky Bhudda recently. Huge taproom, but the beer was a bit meh.

I must agree.  Chocolate milk with peanut butter is good too.

The "jelly" comes from the fruit character lent by the WLP002 yeast.  Drew explains that in the concept/process part of the recipe that is not in the picture.

Reese's PB cup would be a better idea for a beer than PB and J, but that is just me.

I prefere PB and honey, so maybe there is an idea? :P

Yup, the yeast is the J.

I purposely avoid "peanut butter cup" because it's been done - a lot - so pb&j.

meh is too kind in my opinion...
