Hey, There Are Nuts In My Beer!: The Rise Of American Nut Ales

There's no limit when it comes to creative craft beer flavors. Brewers around the U.S. are turning to nuts to provide savory tastes in interesting pints.


From raw oysters to bacon and even algae, craft brewers are a kamikaze crew willing to utilize any foodstuff in the endless quest for unique flavors.
