Skittlebrau: As with most crazy ideas, the Simpsons thought of it first:

Homer: "I'm feelin' low, Apu. You got any of that beer that has candy floating in it, you know, Skittlebrau?"

Apu: "Such a product does not exist, sir! You must have dreamed it."

Homer: "Oh. Well then just gimme a six-pack and a couple of bags of Skittles."

And so with that, the Skittlebrau project was born. My years of drinking training had led up to this moment, the first scientific Skittlebrau investigation. I realized that for such a daring experiment, I would have to do the drink tasting myself. Crazy you say? Crazy like a fox (yeah, I don't know what that is supposed to mean either) . . .

Did this previous guy graduate from AOLU or what? Is typing that hard? Are you that busy? Can people please start using English again so that I don't have to ask a 5 year old to tell me what people write online?

In conclusion, Skittlebrau is a great idea and well worth pursuing.

A few years back (I think before that episode), I got some free wine that was 17% alcohol. It tasted nasty, And I had some Skittles. Well it doesn't take genius to figure out want happened next. I don't know if I was already drunk, but it tasted good.
I guess great minds think alike!

Umm so me and my roommate made some skittlebrau of our own using skittles and MGD Light. Needless to say it is not as good as advertised. The Skittles themselves will make the beer foam uncontrolably so be careful when you add them; also with the light beer I had, I felt the need to add several different kinds of skittle which just made it look like a dark beer and added a very unsatisying after taste (Sorry MGD it's not your fault.) My rommate was smarter than I and only added skittles of one flavor which had a much better effect overall. Overall it was funny, but not necessarily something I would try again in the future, unless otherwise inebriated and not at a point of caring.
I do however suggest trying adding certain flavors of skilles to your favorite flavor of Sminroff's malted drinks. If you use skittles of one flavor it does actually taste pretty good. So far that is the farthest we ahve gone with Skittles in drinks, and I don't knwo if we have any future plans to go farther, as i am pretty sure Skittle never intended there product for that purpose (not taht I really care, but I am gonna try and err on the safe side and not get sued before I'm 25)

Dude, you guys are doing this all wrong. Skittles have different colors and flavors that should be properly matched to the beer you are putting them in. For instance, the Green "lime" ones should be substituted for actual limes and put in Corona. Lemon ones go in Mike's Hard Lemonade. Red ones go in Red Dog...
