Customers crave boiled peanuts at the Brewhaus, a "German-American pub with a Southern twist" in Chattanooga's trendy North Shore neighborhood.
"They're very popular," general manager Michael Nolan said. "Three out of every 10 tables would ask for them."
The $6 appetizer's iconic appeal is simple, Norton explained: "You're in the South -- boiled peanuts."
Trouble is, Brewhaus hasn't been able to get the Southern specialty from its supplier for about six months.
