Mussels, cheeses, chocolate—we’ve got that down pat. But to pair a sticky-sweet marshmallow Peep, we turned to the pros. Their verdict? Go dark!

Patrick Crawford, co-founder, Denver Beer Co.
“A big, roasty stout. Something to cut through the sweetness and artificial flavors and leave your mouth feeling refreshed. One of my favorites is Ska Steel Toe Stout.”

Annette Lee, co-founder, Throwback Brewing
“Campfire, our smoked robust porter. We smoke the malt ourselves on applewood so it has a great smoky flavor. For fun, I’d microwave the Peep, and layer it with a graham cracker and chocolate to make a quick s’more.”

Nick Panchame, head brewer, Right Brain Brewery
“I would go with a Belgian stout. It’s kind of a play on a chocolate-and-marshmallow pairing, but with some Belgian complexity thrown in there to shake things up.”

Andrew Lautner, assistant brewer, Spiteful Brewing
“Chocolate, toffee, vanilla and nutty beers would compliment the marshmallow easily. Add a creamy mouthfeel to further the compliment while providing a nice contrast to the crunchy sugar coating. A dessert beer on its own, our Mrs. O’Leary’s Chocolate Milk Stout fits the bill.”

Fred Rizzo, head brewer, Avery Brewing Company
“We’ll be drinking Uncle Jacob’s Stout with our Peeps.​ This full-bodied, 17% imperial stout aged in Bourbon barrels will pair nicely with Peeps’ über-sweetness and lack of body.”
