Adam Rozen recently began selling a line of flavored nuts that provide drinkers with a more gourmet type of bar snack. While the idea of pairing beer with peanuts is nothing new, most bars simply put out a bowl of generic nuts that do little to elevate the taste of the drinks customers are consuming. Now there is a more flavorful option in the form of peanuts that have been perfectly seasoned to pair with different types of beer.
The 'Nuts for Drinks' line-up is a range of flavored nuts that have been specially created for beer. The peanuts are baked and then coated in different seasonings to pair with specific types of beer. There are four flavors to choose from, including citrus-flavored nuts that are meant to match the different hop varieties found in IPAs, and chutney-flavored nuts that add a hint of spice to lager-style beers. The concept has proven extremely popular among consumers, with brands such as Disney World already offering the product in some of its venues.
With the recent growth of the craft beer industry, consumers are looking for more gourmet snack options to pair with their favorite brews.
