Just chalk this up to random humor: Slashfood reports on a guy who experimented with adding Skittles to beer.

The one, the only, the original, Skittlebrau.

I personally am not a big dark beer fan. But the Crazy Engineer household would be remiss if we didn’t try the actual Skittlebrau.


This isn’t half bad.

The sugar cuts the bitter beer taste and and leaves you with a mellow sweetness that isn’t bad drinking. Now, letting it sit for 30 minutes isn’t advised, but some leisurely drinking is okay. There is a slight odd aftertaste, but no odder than other beers with Skittles.

What? You don’t know what "Skittlebräu" refers to? Shame on you. :)

    I don’t know what I find more enjoyable… that someone actually made Skittlebrau, or that Wikipedia offers a definition of Skittlebrau for the uninitiated.
