Looking for the perfect festive beer to sip on this Easter? A brewery in Texas has created a Peeps-flavored beer and even though April Fool’s Day falls on Easter this year, this is no joke. The Collective Brewing Project in Fort Worth collaborated with local bar Lone Star Taps and Caps on a brew they cleverly call Peep This Collab, and it’s actually made with the marshmallow candy.
"Several of us were just sitting around the brewery talking about how beer has become this super serious thing,” explains Collective's head brewer and co-founder Ryan Deyo. “I've been on a kick to assert beer should be a fun thing... We make a beer with ramen noodles, so Peeps isn't really a stretch."
The beer is topped with butterfly pea flower to give it a fun, purple shade and it also comes with edible glitter, so it’s Insta-worthy, too. But what does Peeps beer taste like? Deyo describes the taste as “marshmallow-y and lightly tart.” I think it's probably a good thing that it's not available in Michigan, Cause, well...yuck. I think I'll stick to my Founders.
