We’ve already seen Trail Butter’s unique blend of almond & sunflower nut butters to create a heathy alternative ride snack for an all-natural energy boost. Now, Trail Butter has partnered with 10 Barrel Brewing (from Portland, of course) for a limited run of NW IPA, a Nut Butter Blend flavored with real malt & hops to satiate your craft beer craving until the end of your ride…
Trail Butter limited edition NW IPA Nut Butter Blend ride nutrition
The Northwest India Pale Ale nut butter actually launched as a collaboration between Trail Butter & 10 Barrel Brewing this summer, not long after we spotted their regular line-up at Sea Otter. But I just stumbled across NW IPA today. Maybe chalk that up to Monday morning doldrums on a cold, overcast autumn day.
In any case, hoppy craft beers & riding bikes goes together like peanut butter & bananas. Actually, that’s one of the ways Trail Butter suggests eating their individually-packed, natural ingredient nut butters. As an alternate to artificially flavored gels & bars, they suggest you can either squeeze them straight into your mouth. Or spread some onto bread, and maybe top with a banana or other fruit for a healthy ride snack.
Working with 10 Barrel Brewing Company’s head brewer Whitney Burnside, they’ve created a unique nut butter blending roasted California almonds & sunflower kernels, then added in Great Western Malt brewer’s malt extract, caramel-y crystal malt, distilled Glacier Hops Ranch hops oil, plus natural lemon zest, Oregon sea salt & GloryBee clover honey. The result is said to be a slightly savory on-the-go snack that will have you jonesing for a post-ride beer.
NW IPA Nut Butter Blend is said to be offered for a limited time only, so we’re not sure how long this new flavor will last. It’s available only in single-serving 33g packs, but you can pick them up in a 6-pack for $12, a short case 12-pack for $22.75, or a suitcase 36-pack for $64.74.
