Look, there are many reasons breakfast and beer were never meant to be. For one, there’s the hangover factor. And we’re just not into the sound of cereal and a brew—unless it’s coffee (heh).
But of course somebody went ahead and mixed the two anyway: Enter the Saturday Morning Marshmallow IPA by Smartmouth Brewing. [Insert sad face emoji.]
This isn’t just any marshmallow beer (???), it’s a beer brewed with actual Lucky Charms marshmallows, because the universe just has a way of giving us what we never asked for.
According to Elite Daily, the beer is made with said marshmallows plus a combination of galaxy and calypso hops. Since we don’t currently brew beer in our basements, we Googled what that means: Galaxy hops are an Australian varietal that have tropical fruit characteristics, while calypso hops are an American varietal that taste fruity, citrusy, earthy and tea-like. Beer, guys.
Tropical fruit plus earthy tea plus Lucky Charms marshmallows. Frankly, we’ve never tasted such a combination. Don’t knock it ’til you’ve tried it, we guess.
The brewery doesn’t ship, so you’ll only be able to taste the Saturday Morning IPA if you happen to live in Virginia. (It officially launches on March 2.) Damn. Guess we’ll have to stick to getting our breakfast marshmallows in cereal form.
