My mother often included some of my Dad’s favorite nuts in his Christmas stocking. I am not a nut lover so I don’t tend to buy them a lot. For that reason I’ve borrowed my Mom’s tradition of giving nuts at Christmas. Beer Nuts has a great selection of nuts, as well as lots of gifts. I may not like nuts but I sure did enjoy browsing their website, where I found lots of humor and great pictures. I received a jar of cashews and almonds topped with “Ms Moose”, as well as a mug and spoon. Unfortunately the nuts did not make it until Christmas, they didn’t even last 48 hours. RB saw them and gobbled them up, stating they were some of the best tasting and freshest nuts he’d ever had. Beer Nuts is a great gift idea for the nut lover in your life.

Beer Nuts

ABOUT BEER NUTS

Beer Nuts is a family owned company, and has been since it first started over 50 years ago. They are located in Bloomington, Illinois and at that location they manufacture/sell Beer Nuts products including Peanuts, Cashews, Almonds, Bar Mix & more. Beer Nuts Brand Snacks continues to use the same secret recipe for its special niche of products as they did back in 1953. The unique sweet and salty nuts were first sold by the scoop at the “Caramel Crisp Shoppe” owned by the Shirk family in Bloomington, Illinois. As their popularity spread in bars and taverns throughout the Midwest, they were appropriately named Beer Nuts and quickly became a snack time success. With the same family commitment to freshness and quality almost 50 years later, Beer Nuts is still owned by the Shirk family and manufactured only in Bloomington, Illinois. Today, Beer Nuts products also include Cashews, Almonds and Kettle Cooked Peanuts, which are all available in bars, grocery and convenience stores throughout the country.
