Beards Brewery’s Deez Nutz

Bottoms Up
By Lynda Wheatley | Nov. 14, 2020

Don’t let the squirrely name fool you. Deez Nutz is a very serious brown ale. Brewed with oats, chocolate, and caramel malts, this annual autumn offering from Beards Brewery is one we crave the minute we pull on our mittens. It’s beautifully smooth and almost chewy, with decent heft in the body and a load of nutty, rich caramel flavors at the fore. We generally tote a can of Deez Nuts (ABV 5%) along on a fall hike, but between Nov. 13 and 22, we recommend you take two cans home from the brewery, along with a two-topping pizza, a full order of breadsticks (with marinara and Beards’ house-whipped cheddar), and two bottles of soda — all for $25. That’s because Beards Brewery is one of 13 area restaurants offering huge lunch/dinner and/or family meal deals in The Great Petoskey Take-Out event. See the list and all the excellent specials at www.petoskeychamber.com. Find Beards (closed Mondays and Tuesdays) at 215 E. Lake St., Petoskey. (231) 753-2221, www.beardsbrewery.com
