Mountain Bakehouse and Colorado's Oskar Blues Brewery have created a
tag-team masterpiece that blends the planet's most revered fermented
foods: Beer & Bread. Each loaf of Old Chub Beer Bread contains
nearly a whole can of the world’s best Scottish ale, Oskar Blues' Old
Chub. We could have stopped there, but no! This dual-artisan gem also
sports a wheaty sourdough base, a touch of honey and a heaping handful
of organic sunflower seeds. Before it hits the oven, each loaf is
lovingly rolled in Old Chubs’ Beech wood-smoked malted barley and then
baked to wonderful, golden perfection. These handmade implausible
pieces of baked goodness are available at all Wholefoods stores in
Colorado, New Mexico & Kansas.
Take home a loaf and Chub the one you're with!
