Doughnut infused beer? That’s a yes from us!

Just when you thought life couldn’t get any better, some one has gone and invented a Krispy Kreme beer. No joke. This has actually happened.

Florida-based breweries Hidden Springs and Arkane Aleworks have teamed up on a mission to create a Russian Imperial Stout brewed with actual Krispy Kreme Donuts. The beer has been made twice so far, once with 24 original glazed donuts, and the second with 24 cream filled donuts.

Founder of Hidden Springs, Josh Garman, told Tampa Bay Times that they hope to be able “to get some of the glaze from the Krispy Kremes to come through,” into the beer.

Krispy Kreme has even stepped forward to condone and support the breweries in their creation.

Stop. #collaborate. And, listen. Early #brewday with @arkane_aleworks means we're shoving #donuts in our faces. We're noticing a trend. . . . . #hiddenspringstampa #arkanealeworks #overthebridge #largobeer #tampaheights #tampabeer #hasanyoneseentaylor #collabday

Basically, this beverage sounds too good to be true. We can’t believe Matt Groening didn’t think of this concoction for Homer! The beer is 12.5 per cent alcohol so it’s bound to get you pretty messy… but we like to think, the more the merrier!

The beer should be available in bottles at the Tampa Brewery in January. All that’s left to do now is book a flight to Florida. We are pretty serious about our donuts.
