Panther Island puts Beaver Nuggets in beer

Anyone who's taken a road trip in Texas has probably been to a Buc-ee's, the gas station/convenience store found alongside major roadways throughout the Lone Star State.

In fact, many would argue that stopping at Buc-ee's is a sort of rite of passage for passersby, whether it be for the chance to mix and mingle with what seems like the entire Texas traveling public, or to grab an oversized soda and a sackful of Buc-ee's brand snacks.

Regarding the latter, perhaps the most popular snack item at Buc-ee's is Beaver Nuggets. Love 'em or hate 'em, these caramel-coated corn puffs are revered to the point that some would consider them an iconic Texas taste temptation.

So, why bring this up?

Because Panther Island Brewing of Fort Worth put them in a beer. And while Beaver Nuggets may be just as polarizing as Marshmallow Peeps - a candy that crept into a beer at another Fort Worth brewery, we're at the point now in the craft beer universe where we no longer ask why...we simply say...why not?!

Beaver Nugget Brown Ale goes on tap this Friday, February 7, starting at noon. A small-batch offering, the beer is said to be super-limited and only available in the taproom - for now.
