Jinkies! Looks like Peaks has more 450 North snaks!

Jinkies! Looks like Peaks has more 450 North snaks!

We all love Scooby Doo for its thinly veiled weed references and campy, nonsensical villains. There’s something to be said for a world in which the monster is always just a maniacal old dude in a mask. Seriously, the smoke from the Mystery Machine as it pulls away? That’s not coming from the tailpipe, friend. Stoners get a bad rap. They are often thought of as closed-eyed, open-mouthed, pizza roll eating, Scooby Doo watching couch potatoes. Not 450 North Brewing Company. OK, we don’t know if the Columbus, Indiana brewery houses a bunch of stoners, but the OG of smoothie style beers sure digs those crazy cartoon kids since many of their beers are named after the antics of Fred Jones, Daphne Blake, Velma Dinkley, Shaggy Rogers, and Scooby-Doo. Jinkies! Looks like Peaks has more 450 North snaks in the house!

“If you’re not familiar, 450 North specializes in the most insane smoothie style beers in the market,” says Matthew McLaren, brand manager at Orcas Distributors and a Level 3 Advanced Cicerone.  “They are widely credited with starting the smoothie beer craze after a few pictures of their beers went viral a few years ago.  Since then, they’ve been pumping out the most insane, delicious, and sought-after adjunct laden beers you could imagine.”
