Beechnut is a brand of chewing tobacco here in the states. Brings back images of old farts and rednecks chewing and spitting.

Reminds me of high school baseball practice. It was cool to have a big ol chaw of Levi Garrett, Redman, or Beechnut in your cheek.... While terribly trying to hide it from the coaches.

So far, I see two camps forming.

Camp "I like tobacco notes in beer if they don't actually come from tobacco"

and Camp Barf.

Neither camp seems to encourage adding tobacco to beer.

Now why does that only strengthen my resolve?

Definitely part of both groups, maybe more so the former, but I'm very interested in this if you do try to experiment.

Please, don't encourage him. It's easy when there's a ocean between the two of you.

And I'm not sure how it's marketed over in Europe, but "Beechwood aged" is the tag line of the King of Beers. He's a punny man, that Jim :)

Want to have some fun? Clean out a chewing tobacco tin and fill it full of tootsie roll after running it through a pencil sharpener. When you're around a bunch of the guys chew and spit a couple of time then chew and swallow the next couple of chews.

Yes, i can easily imagine him getting hardened wiseguys on their knees with just a few wisecracks.
