USA Today named Brewnuts, owned by Ohio University alum Shelley Fasulko ’03, ’05M, as one of the 10 tastiest doughnut shops in the USA.

Fasulko earned a M.A. in Sociology from the College of Arts & Sciences. Her Brewnuts is a bakery specializing in craft-beer inspired gourmet donuts. Brewnuts is currently a member of the Cleveland Culinary Launch & Kitchen, a shared kitchen experience helping local chefs and bakers realize their culinary dreams.

Here’s how Pettersen describes Brewnuts:

The inevitable melding of beer and doughnuts has been taken to the next level at the newly opened Brewnuts. Craft beer is infused into seasonal creations like “The Symon” (a chocolate peanut butter doughnut, with Peanut Butter Coffee Porter, topped with a peanut butter beer sauce and pork rind dust), “The Bumbler” (a Honey Blueberry Ale doughnut with whole blueberries, topped with a lemon glaze, poppy seeds and sanding sugar) and “The Dub Choc” (an Oatmeal Stout doughnut with a combination of 70 percent and 85 percent cocoa chocolate ganache). Due to the all-consuming attention they give to their product, they usually only have about six flavors at any given time.
