ROCKLAND, Maine – Bixby Chocolate and Allagash Brewing Company two well-known and beloved Maine-based businesses have teamed up to create Beer Brittle. Allagash and Bixby were natural collaborators as both have values rooted in community and sustainability.
“Kate and the folks at Bixby represent so many of the things we love about working with local, independent companies. They ethically source their ingredients, they invest in their local communities, and they make some absolutely delicious sweets. The whole collaboration has been a pleasure and we couldn’t be more excited to share and enjoy the result.” said Jeff Pillet-Shore Marketing Director at Allagash.
Kate McAleer, the founder of Bixby, and brainchild of this product collaboration said “Bixby was seeking a way to innovate a new brittle concept and craft beer seemed like a wonderful addition to the flavor profile. Allagash was our dream partner—we started R+D with Allagash White and grew the concept from there.”
And the final product is absolutely delicious. It is buttery, crunchy, nutty goodness in every bite. The brittle is available in three flavors using three of Allagash’s distinct brews.
The Allagash Sixteen Counties Chipotle Peanut Brittle. This peanut brittle is for the adventurist who enjoys a bit of spice and heat. Features the iconic Allagash Sixteen Counties beer (brewed with 100% Maine-grown grain). The brittle has a dash of chipotle and Maine Sea Salt for a mouthwatering experience.
