Juncts In The Trunk

The word “adjunct” alone has a history if giving beer enthusiasts nightmares… Adjunct beers were seen as cheap, cheating, inauthentic and low brow. But oh how the tables have turned. Now-a-days, adjunct stouts are some of the most sought after beers, and for good reason. They are absolutely delicious and beer pairs so damn well with so many flavors. So drink what you like, right? Here’s a list of some of my favorite adjuncts and specific beers that showcase those juncts well. You can never have enough junct in the trunk… Well you can, I’ll have a short list of beers that I think have WAY too many juncts.

There are tons of beers that could fall in these categories, these are just a small sampling of ones I have had and enjoyed. Have favorites? Let me know.
