Twelve years after the dancing banana first graced the internet with its presence, the letters “p-e-a” still autocomplete on Youtube with “-nut butter jelly time.” So if you think about it, now’s a good a time as any to release a beer inspired by one of the most nefariously catchy memes ever. Best of all, those 10 year olds who watched the original video are finally old enough to drink.
Aged with raspberries and roasted peanuts, the Peanut Butter Jelly brown ale from Catawba Brewing Co. is meant to recreate the “childhood goodness” of mom-packed school lunches, perfect for your weekly existential crisis/nostalgia binge. Sadly the brew is only available in cans around the Carolinas (Catawba is based in North Carolina), or on tap at Catawba’s tap rooms in Asheville or Morganton, so everyone not from those parts will just have to stick to Disneyland for their liquid PB&J fix.
Cheers to growing up!
