We did it. We put a peanut butter jelly sandwich in a bottle. Some would say that this is a crime against all that is decent in the world of craft beverages, but this Peanut Butter Jelly Crime has yet to receive judgement from you, a distinguished member of the jury. So carefully examine all of the evidence provided by the prosecution, and consider the alibi of the defense, as you decipher the multifaceted complexity of the case. As you enjoy PBJC, don’t forget the toast!
Oh I heard of this one! Fuck yeah heard of this one. I herd of it so much that I hard damn time getting this one. There was only a single place that I knew of that had this mead on deck and that one the San Diego BestDamnBeerShop.com Granted, this bottle was expensive, but for the rarity and for what it was…(Let’s be honest, I had a sweet spot for peanut butter and PBJ anything) I could not pass up bringing this special mead to the site. Besides the fact that it is peanut butter, it is another reason for me to create my own peanut butter and jelly mead or beer! It is really inspiring and one that if I love this, will definitely figure out the recipe. Let’s have a look, cheers!

Finishing sweet with lingering blueberries and mixed dark fruits along with that nice slippery, peanut buttery goodness, honey, banana, berry pastries, wine grapes, raspberry liqueur, mixed nuts and more. No alcohol in the taste, and very dangerous at that. The color is a magenta rose clear body, smooth, creamy, buttery and velvety mouthfeel along with a drinkability that is extremely easy and extremely dangerous. I think the crime part is starting to make sense.
Hands down, next to the Dragon’s Milk aged mead, the best mead in fucken existence period! What is this?!?!! WHAT THE FUCK IS THIS?!!!? Literal, peanut butter and jelly liquid bliss and not even the chocolate kind. Yesh, essentially the kind you can soak up in pancakes and have immediately. Everything I love about Peanut butter and Jelly, in mead form becomes a bigger punch in the face. Granted, the roasty chocolate and coffee found in beers with peanut butter and jelly help, in the hands of pure fermented honey seems like an unheard of ambrosia. There is a reason for the name. It is a crime if you finish this in one sitting but damn it is exquisitely tempting. I highly recommend it if you can find it.
Sasha Lilac was brought back for this pairing as I had decided to bring her for a another peanut butter and jelly pairing time. Now in order for this to work with the label and the theme of the mead, I had to mix the pairings to make it seems like crime fighting and investigating is part of the overall fight of the crime specified in the label. Examples include her reaching out in rage realizing what has happened in the game, one even involves taking down a suspect. Others seems more simple but have a them going that complements this story.
