Beer Made Out of Krispy Kreme Donuts Is Coming. Here’s Where You Can Get It

I suspect I won’t be able to get it in Turkey – for which may the Lord make me truly thankful!

Beer lovers have a sweet new brew to look forward to.

Two Tampa Bay breweries have teamed up to use Krispy Kreme donuts in the brewing of their beers.

Both Hidden Springs Ale Works and Arkane Aleworks in Tampa, Florida, have started brewing up batches of the beer, with one batch made out of dozens of glazed donuts, while the other is made out of cream-filled donuts, according to the Tampa Bay Times.

Hidden Springs Ale Works posted a picture of the brewing process on their Facebook last week, showing chunks of the donuts they’re mixing in with a Russian imperial stout that’s yet to be named.

This isn’t the first time either brewery is experimenting with unexpected flavors, though, having already used everything from Peeps and 7-Eleven doughnuts to peanut butter and Gatorade.

The donuts bring in a sweet touch to the Russian imperial stout, known for exhibiting flavors of coffee, chocolate, and roasted malt.

The breweries are planning to offer the new brew on draft and by the bottle, at a price of $25, starting next month.”

  1. Ha ha, I wonder if that has anything to do with InBev owning so many breweries in the U.S.
    Back in the 80’s Belgium had more than 150 different kinds of Beer, including a Strawberry variety that was pretty nice actually. Now it seems the flavored Beer disease has been exported to the other side of the pond. Krispy Kreme Beer may actually be better than that canned Mississippi river water known as the “King of Beers”, also known as Budweiser. Some of the northern states, like Minnesota and Wisconsin had some good but lesser known beers, but at the time I attributed that to the population’s German and Scandinavian heritage with names like Augsburger’s etc. I agree that a donut flavored Beer does not sound appealing; I’ll stick to Dutch and German Beer.

    • Who knows? Maybe donut beer will be ok. It did strike me as funny, though. I used to brew my own beer in NZ – admittedly using those pre-malted packs – but never thought of adding donuts to the mix 😉
