Poland Spring introduced us to “what it means to be from Maine.” Now, two other Maine-based brands have teamed up to offer a new product from the Pine Tree State.
Bixby Chocolate and Allagash Brewing Company have teamed up to create Beer Brittle.
Both having values rooted in community and sustainability, the duo cooked up three different kinds of brittle to reflect the brewery’s signature flavors: The Allagash Sixteen Counties Chipotle Peanut Brittle, Allagash White Peanut Brittle and Allagash Nibby Stout.
Sixteen Counties Chipotle Peanut Brittle features a spicy combination of Allagash Sixteen Counties (brewed with 100% Maine-grown grain) and dash of chipotle and Maine Sea Salt. Made with the famous Belgian-style Allagash White, peanuts, and a hint of Maine Sea Salt, Allagash White Peanut Brittle is the lightest and most mellow of the three. Lastly, the Nibby Stout is made with Allagash North Sky Stout, Bixby nibs and a mix of nuts.
Bixby Chocolate Founder Kate McAlee had the inspiration for collaboration. “Bixby was seeking a way to innovate a new brittle concept and craft beer seemed like a wonderful addition to the flavor profile. Allagash was our dream partner — we started R+D with Allagash White and grew the concept from there.”
“Kate and the folks at Bixby represent so many of the things we love about working with local, independent companies,” added Jeff Pillet-Shore, Marketing Director at Allagash Brewing Company. “They ethically source their ingredients, they invest in their local communities, and they make some absolutely delicious sweets. The whole collaboration has been a pleasure and we couldn’t be more excited to share and enjoy the result.”
The Bixby Chocolate x Allagash Brewing Company’s Beer Brittle are available now at retailers.
