Cheers to that!

Millennials get a lot of hate, and frankly, I don't get it. Just look at all the amazing food trends they have given us! They reignited our love for avocados, filled our feeds with pictures of mermaid- and unicorn-inspired drinks and bedazzled our morning coffee, and now, they're taking beer to a whole new level.

As Munchies first pointed out, breweries across the country are now experimenting with mesmerizing, glitter-infused beers. Breweries with glitter beer use edible glitter that is perfectly safe to eat (er, drink!) and will look incredible on our social media posts, which is obviously all any of us care about anyway.

The glitter beer made its debut at breweries like Ska Brewing in Colorado, Three Weavers Brewing Company out in California and at Bold Missy Brewery in North Carolina, but it seems to have actually been around for a while. In 2016, HuffPost wrote about a pink ale that included… you got it … edible glitter.

But, really, is that so surprising? If you happen to own some edible glitter, we imagine you can throw it into any beer you happen to have available anywhere.

We’re already planning to work it into our Happy Hour plans. The possibilities are endless. Still, cheers to the hope bartenders are getting a raise — we imagine cleaning the glitter out of all those glasses and bar taps is going to be a mess!
