Wheaties Is Making Beer Now Because Beer Is the True Breakfast of Champions
It’s always five o’clock somewhere, right?
Wheaties, a very good and famous cereal, has wheat in it. Know what else has wheat in it? Beer. So it was only a matter of time before the two met.
According to a post on General Mills blog, Wheaties will be partnering with Fulton, a brewery in Minneapolis, to make a craft beer called HefeWheaties. The limited-edition brew will be a Hefeweizen—a German style of wheat beer—and sold starting August 26th in 4-packs of tallboy cans. Sadly, they won’t be available for purchase or shipment outside of the Minneapolis area, so if you’re a real Wheaties fanatic, it’s time for you to book a plane ticket to the Twin Cities. (Or just start drinking at breakfast. Win-win!)
The beer itself won’t actually have Wheaties in it, but to remedy that, we totally suggest swapping out the milk in your cereal with beer.
