Saint Benjamin Brewing Pays Homage to Little Pete’s


saint-benjamins-little-petes-beerSaint Benjamin Brewing Company’s latest release pays homage to to Philly’s beloved Little Pete’s. The beer, “Little Peat” is a 4.2% alcohol by volume dry stout with a hint of smoke and roasted flavors from the roasted barley, caramel malt and smoked peat malt.

Saint Benjamin’s Tim Patton said “we were engineering a rich yet easy drinking dark beer with a slight smoky peat essence that you might want to enjoy while sitting beside a fire on a cold night, when we learn that Philadelphia’s beloved Little Pete’s was doomed.” Realizing just how attached Philadelphians are to the 24-hour diner, he decided to name the beer after the landmark.

Little Peat is available in ½ barrels and sixtels now. Look for Saint Benjamin Brewing Company beers in the following area beer bars:
