Beer lovers are in for a sweet surprise thanks to a jelly bean the Jelly Belly Candy Company debuted in San Francisco over the weekend.

The Fairfield-based candy company unveiled what may be the world's first beer-flavored jelly bean that took three years in the making,according to a company statement.

The non-alcoholic Draft Beer Flavor Jelly Bean, which is inspired by a Hefeweizen flavor, debuted during the Winter Fancy Food Show in San Francisco over the weekend.

“Usually the factory has a sweet and fruity aroma, but when we’re making this flavor it’s just like being in an ale house,” a company statement quoted Jeff Brown, vice president in charge of manufacturing for Jelly Belly Candy Company, as saying.  

Those looking to liven up their palate can combine the beer-flavored jellybeans with other flavors to make a beer sangria, beer cider or Michelada, according to the blog "The Beeroness."

The new beer-flavored jelly beans will be available around the world in the coming months.

I actually taste tested these several years ago. They were okay. Kind of strange at first like chocolate soda pop is strange. But once I got over the sweet beer flavor shock they were no weirder than buttered popcorn flavored jelly beans.
