Stone Brewing launches a tangerine IPA nut butter

Billed as “a marmalade and nut butter blend,” California’s Stone Brewing is turning its Tangerine IPA into a condiment, combining ingredients from the brewing process into the finished product.

A collaboration with Nutista, a nut butter brand co-founded by Stone’s Greg Koch last year, the new nut butter expression has flavours of tangerine and pineapple with a beer backbone.

Founded by Tristen Cross, John Huber and Koch, Nutista vowed to “look at nut butter with a craft brewer mentality”. With three core butters, this is the company’s second beer-nut collaboration, with a similar product launched in March, entitled Nutista Stone Totalitarian Imperial Russian Stout nut butter.

Included in the tangerine expression are blanched almonds and dry roasted peanuts along with dry malt extract, tangerine, pineapple, brewer’s yeast and sea salt. The Russian Stout butter meanwhile also contains both almonds and peanuts as well as cacao, golden light dry malt, Brazil oberon coffee, roasted barley malt, brewer’s chocolate barley malt, black barley malt, pecans and sea salt.

Both butters can be bought via both the Nutista and Stone websites for US$12 per 8-ounce jar.

Cross commented: “Our goal is to make nut butter much more accessible, fun, and delicious. So we make innovative, nutritious flavours that have culinary flair and are super clean, made without any unhealthy ingredients”.

Among Stone’s other quirky creations is a sewage water beer called Full Circle.
