this is insane. i dont know why one would set out to make a beer like this, but it could not possibly be executed any better than this one is. its like the pbj sandwiches my mom used to pack in my school lunch when i was a kid (although those did have crusts). i get the flavor and texture of sliced whole grain bread, filling and dense. the peanut butter isnt greasy in the beer, but its smooth and sticky, and the flavor is on point. as for the jelly, hard to tell, but i would say grape in here, but in the beer its more of a generic fruit vibe. i have had beers like this before, but they always grossed me out. this tastes like a liquid pbj sandwich, and its genius if you like that sort of thing. you just have to be impressed with it. i think the brown ale base was the right call, there is a nuttiness in the grain bill that supports the peanut butter, and a chocolate malt kiss that brings it all together. if you like the sandwich, you will like the beer, it could not be more spot on in terms of flavor accuracy to the real thing. i would love to sit in on brew day for this!

When on point, it is really a treat to behold if you are a PBJ fan, however, I have been spoiled and live close to the brewery and have tasted many batches with these batches having some major variances in flavor. With that said, the below is based off my good experiences.

A: Dark brown, minimal head.

S: It is a PBJ sandwich to the nose. Phenemonal.

T: Funny I hate PBJ but I love PBJ beer and this reminds of what PBJ should taste like.

M: Easy drinking, lots of flavor, not too carbed.

O: When on point, it is great. Hopefully, you get to experience it that way...on point.

On tap at the Lounge in Boca


A: Very dark brown, opaque, small light tan head, dissipates quickly no lacing. 4

S: Smells exactly like a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Remarkable. 5

T: Like the nose, it's a great beer interpretation of PB&J. Lots of peanut butter and grape jelly. Some doughy white bread. Impressive. 4.75

M/D: Medium body, carbonation appropriate, drinkability is very good. 4.25

O: This is a pretty ridiculously impeccable beer version of a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Doesn't even make sense how they are able to pull this off. On a day in which I enjoyed several great Funky Buddha beers including Maple Bacon Coffee Porter, this one was my favorite which says something. 4.75

This definitely tasted like PB&J. However that is extremely strange in a beer.

It's all in the name. Simply put, it tasted like a pb&j sandwich.
