Beaus Elephant Monsoon
THIS BEER CONTAINS PEANUTS
A delicious duo meets a classic British beer style in what we are calling a “PB & grape” porter. The nicely roasted malt character of a porter ale gets a fun, flavourful twist with the addition of organic peanut butter and concord grape juice.

HISTORY & STYLE
A roasty brown ale with hundreds of years of history behind it, porter beer originated in London and was very popular in the 18th and 19th centuries. PB & grape is a sandwich, popular in North America, made with a layer of peanut butter & grape jelly between two slices of bread… or one slice, folded over, if you prefer.
Elephant Monsoon pours a nearly opaque brown/black with a tan head. The aroma is a medley of mocha, grape and peanut notes. The flavour features sweet grapey fruitiness followed by dark chocolate and peanuts. The finish is dry… with lingering nuts.
Peanut butter pie with Oreo crust; “Elvis Presley” grilled cheese (peanut butter, mashed banana & crisp bacon); Asian-spiced chicken meatballs with spicy peanut sauce.
