Beer Nuts is an American brand of snack food building on the original product, peanuts with a sweet-and-salty glazing. Although Beer Nuts do not contain any beer, the name suggests that they are intended as a side dish to beer consumption.
Packages of BEER NUTS® were often made available to bar customers as a perfect complement to the complex flavors of beer. Despite its unusual name, there is no actual beer or beer ingredients in BEER NUTS®. Beer nuts have a close association with alcohol, as they were once marketed to a chain of liquor stores.
