Beer For Breakfast? You Can Now Get This Unusual Cereal-Flavored Ale


Beer For Breakfast? You Can Now Get This Unusual Cereal-Flavored Ale

After pumpkin spice beer, chocolate beer, key lime pie beer, and oyster stout, you should be sufficiently prepared for beers brewed with strange flavors.

A Massachusetts brewery has released a brand new drink inspired by one of your favorite breakfast cereals, and we can't decide if it's a good thing or not.

Somerville's Saturday Morning ale is a Belgian-style brew made using Cap'n Crunch Berries cereal. The beer is 9% alcohol and will be sold locally at their taproom.

Brendan O'Toole, operation manager, told the brewing secret: "Start with a base recipe roughly similar to that of our Trekker Trippel and add the breakfast cereal during the mash-in. We also added a good amount of flaked corn to the mash in order to add smoothness to the body and further emphasize the cereal-like overtones."

The fun and wacky beer gets its name and character from the brewery itself, since Cartoon Network is always on TV as employees work.  

"Life is short. Have fun and try crazy things," the company said on Facebook.


So, what does Cap'n Crunch beer actually taste like?

Caitlin Jewell, co-owner of the brewery, described the beer as a "traditional Belgian beer aromas like bubble gum, stone fruit and spice," and "light, fruity notes from the cereal."

Something tells me this guy will be happy about the new beer:
