Black Bottle Brewery in Fort Collins bought up inventories of the iconic chocolate and marshmallow-bit cereal.
The reason for the brewery's large purchase, Marrick said, is the brewery's Cerealiously beer series, a creation that already has sogged the likes of Golden Grahams, Reese's Puffs and Cinnamon Toast Crunch into a milky stout. The process is similar to dry-hopping a beer: "We put the cereal into a hop back so it doesn't get into the beer," Marrick said. "We did it as a joke at first, but the beer turned out well."
Cerealiously Count Chocula will be released Oct. 30, but beer and cereal fans have more iterations to look forward to, including Lucky Charms for St. Patrick's Day and Cap'n Crunch for another occasion. Huzzah!
