Dear SOS: During my family reunion in Portland, Ore., this past summer, we stumbled upon what we all decided were the tastiest beer nuts. We had them at Deschutes Brewery at 210 NW 11th Ave. I also discovered, upon returning to California, that some of my friends didn’t know what beer nuts were! I would very much like to make some and share with them.
Dear Beverly: Deschutes Brewery was happy to share its recipe for this classic sweet-and-salty bar snack. Might as well whip up a double batch and have plenty of beer on hand; these go quickly!
