A Note on This Beer
As my kindergarten teacher Ms. Stein always said, “You can’t eat glitter.” But, thanks to Pennsylvania’s Levante Brewing, I can finally drink it!
Okay, so this Milkshake IPA contains 4 lbs per barrel of Citra, Simcoe, Azacca, El Dorado, and Mosaic Hops in lieu of tiny, metallic flecks. But, if its passionfruit, pineapple-clementine smoothie flavors don’t make your tastebuds sparkle, I don’t know what will.
Plus, the brewers ferment Glitter Parts with coconut and vanilla, and give it a dose of lactose for creamy, shimmery splendor.
You’d probably cough a lot if you tried to eat real glitter, but this silky, tropical ambrosia sips down so smoothly, you’ll beam bright all over by the time you hit the bottom of the can.
On that note, you’ll want to stock up on extra. Once this dazzler of an IPA is gone, the only Glitter Parts that’ll be left outside the Keystone State will be actual arts and crafts. And, rest assured, that stuff’s not anywhere near as tropically refreshing.
