Realizing April Fool’s Day falls on Easter Sunday this year, what I’m about to tell you is no joke…..there’s a Peeps beer hippity-hopping (or, in this case, would that be ‘staggering’?) down the bunny trail.
The Collective Brewing Project in Texas is making a Peeps beer just in time for Easter called Peeps This Collab. The purple brew is glittery and made with actual Peeps.
Brewer Dave Riddile says, “The Peeps won’t have a big impact on the flavor of the finished product, besides that they will provide a little more fermentable sugar for the yeast to work with. We’re expecting it to be lemony with a sweet marshmallow-y flavor, along with a creamy mouthfeel from the lactose sugar. We will also be adding butterfly pea flower to dye the beer a deep purple along with edible glitter for sparkle so that the finished product will resemble a Peep.”
Sound tasty? Or bleeeechhhhhh? I’m leaning towards the latter….. ~ Jason
