Toast With Beer

The indulgence of craft beer meets handmade, small batch preserves in this set of beer jellies—including one each of IPA, Black IPA, Porter and Oatmeal Stout. Intrepid former archaeologist and hardcore foodie Nancy Warner moved to Vermont and, inspired by the bountiful local food and beer culture, transformed a variety of beers from notable local craft breweries into enticingly unique jellies. The traditional ingredients of beer (hops, malt and yeast) are rendered into jellies that balance malty sweetness with the hop profiles of the beer styles used: floral and spicy notes in the IPA and Black IPA, smoky-sweet in the porter, roasty and earthy in the stout. Add a distinctive touch to cheese platters, use them to glaze meats, mix them in cocktails and salad dressings, use them for irresistible baking (like peanut butter and porter muffins), or indulge in a grown-up pb&j! Handmade in Waterbury Center, VT.

Walter and Nancy Warner

In 2009, founders, Nancy and Walter Warner, left their rewarding and ever interesting careers in archaeology to relocate to Vermont so Walter could attend the Vermont Law School. While Walter honed in on cultural resource law, Nancy (already food-centric and an avid forager) began to focus on the local bounty and found great inspiration in Vermont’s food and beer culture.

The first batch of strawberry chipotle jam was made with 10lbs of berries harvested at the Thetford Strawberry Festival. This was quickly followed by other unconventional flavors such as homegrown blackberry basil jelly & wild sumac jelly. Hooked on canning, Nancy had a cupboard of jam and Walter pushed her to the farmers market.... possibly with the hopes of paying off law school loans.

One winter when fresh fruit was out of stock Nancy began turning all ordinary things, like coffee or wine, into jelly. After making wine jelly, the craft beer lover was determined to create a jelly that tasted like beer. The first beer jellies were cooked up late winter 2011 and quickly the most popular was beer jelly which was made with local homebrew. collection
