Who Knew a Belching Beaver Could Taste So Good

Real Estate Agent
After an early morning visit to the CalFit Health Club spa to marinate, I arrived back home as the sun was rising. We had heavy weekend rains in Sacramento. But, today it was all about the blue sky.

After sipping a cup of tea with a biscuit, I went outside, and raked leaves in my backyard. A large branch from a neighbor's tree had blown off during Saturday's storm. My trusty chainsaw took care of it in short order. And, I cleaned up the rest of my yard from the storm.

I was wondering why I was so hungry until I glanced at the clock, and it informed it was 1:30 p.m. I wandered indoors, and fried up these three small Tilapia fillets - Cajun style. After adding mashed potatoes and a little salad to the plate, I wandered out to the "party fridge" in my garage to find something to drink. I located this single can of Peanut Butter Milk Stout.  Awhile back, I had been given it to try, and I'd forgotten about it.

I must say I found it delightful. You can definitely taste the peanut butter flavor with the brew. And, while peanut butter and ale may sound funky, it really was a fusion of fun taste.

The brew is produced by Belching Beaver Brewery. It boasts, "Dam Good Times." It warns that lactose is inside. So, if you are lactose intolerant, this brew may not be for you!

Belching Beaver Brewery is located in San Diego, California.

Good morning Myrl. Not sure I would delight in the Peanut Butter Milk Ale but would be willing to taste it even without your delicious looking lunch. Enjoy your day.

Looks very tasty, Myrl. I'm always impressed by the meals you prepare for yourself. Can't say I do that much if just cooking for myself.

Hello Myrl - you deserved a break after those morning adventures.   And finding an unexpected surprise in your party fridge, sounds like it topped off your afternoon meal quite nicely.  And it couldn't find the name of your selected beverage a bit smile-worthy?

Peanut Butter Milk Stout is a selection I have not yet tried. I have not seen it in our area.

Have a great day.

Looks like a meal for replacing energy after a hard morning's work. Not sure the beer would have been my choice, but it sounds interesting. I am sure Annie would give it a try.

Myrl I will take your word on the "Peanut Butter Milk Stout", however, there is no doubt about how GOOD the food looked.

Aura Alex - I find Tilapia is easy to find, and fries up really well.  I eat it often.

Endre Barath, Jr. - Cabernet is my favorite red wine.  I don't know why, but I've leaned toward brews more lately.

Dorie Dillard Austin TX - I was really looking for a bottle of water when I went out to the party fridge, but spotted this brew instead.

Wayne Martin - I hope you enjoy your day as well.

Nina Hollander, Broker - I think it has only been the last few years that I've spent more time cooking for myself.  And, the early months of the pandemic where we were more isolated, kicked it up a notch.

Michael Jacobs - I have found the labels on a lot of brews are humorous, and tickle the imagination.

Kat Palmiotti - I thought it was a cute name too.

Roy Kelley The Belching Beaver Brewery is located in San Diego, California.  It is available at Bev Mo here in Sacramento, and Safeway stores as well.

Nick Vandekar, 610-203-4543 At first glance the label seemed a little too funky to try.  But, it was there on the shelf in my fridge, so I had to give it a try.  I was pleasantly surprised.  It kind of reminded me of the old days when you would go into a bar, order up a brew, and have a bowl of peanuts on the counter to nibble on.

George Souto - I'm glad you approved of the foods look.

Hi Myrl,
Who could pass up reading this post after reading your headline?  Your lunch looks delightful. The Peanut Butter Milk Stout sounds dubious, but I'll take your word for it! 😊

Hi Myrl Jeffcoat - Wow, what a great title.  I was wondering where you were going to go with this.  Now,  I am really curious about the taste of that Peanut Butter Milk Stout.  I will pick one up if I see it in the store!

Myrl Jeffcoat - OMG! I love this blog post. You are a very clever writer. As I was reading, an imaginary movie was taking place in my head. Myrl, if you were a Magazine Column Writer, I would subscribe, just to read your articles! I think you would have gotten a kick watching me read "Who Knew a Belching Beaver Could Taste So Good." 

Your Title opened up my eyes and I couldn't wait to read! Visually, I could almost see the rain, smell and taste the tea and biscuit, then go outside to rake up the fall leaves under the blue sky. By the time I got to Peanut Butter Stout Brew my nose was wrinkled because I couldn't imagine how that would taste! However, since you tasted it first and gave it such an interesting and good review, I would give it try!

Oh, how I wish stories like this were FEATURED on ActiveRain. You are one of the best writers and you're the real deal when writing with authenticity! I do appreciate you!

Myrl, your lunch and drink looked beautiful and tasty and made me hungry at around midnight here in Florida.  I had just copied Will Hamm's recipe for Super Bowl Chili Dogs and your post put the finished touches.  I will just have to open my refrigerator door and raid.
