Sparkle on Tap: Missoula brewery serves glitter beer

Posted: Updated:

What started as an April Fool's Joke at a Missoula brewery might become a permanent beer on tap.

Missoula's Draught Works Brewery added a little sparkle to a keg of IPA and served up glitter beer Sunday.

While it was meant as a joke for April Fool's Day, it might be a regular beer on tap. 

Glitter beer is a trend that's catching on national wide.

Some Missoula beer connoisseurs actually seem to like it. Others weren't so sure.

“I heard some positive feedback," said Kyle Sillars, head brewer at Draught Works. "I heard some knee-jerk reactions of people not being into it. But that's okay, everyone has their opinion and that's why we have 14 different beers on tap. So you can find something else if you don't want it,”

You might be wondering how they make the beer glittery. Sillars says they used a non-toxic, food-grade glitter. It doesn't take much - roughly less than half a gram of glitter per gallon of beer.
