Wheaties teams up with craft brewery to make beer


NEW YORK (AP) – These Wheaties may not be so good with milk.

Wheaties says it’s partnering with craft beer-maker Fulton Brewery to create a limited-edition beer. The 16-ounce cans will only be available in the Minneapolis-St. Paul market starting Aug. 26, according to Wheaties parent company General Mills.

It’s not exactly clear what makes it Wheaties beer, though it does contain wheat.

General Mills says the beer will be called HefeWheaties in a nod to a Germany style of beer called hefeweizen, which is typically made with more than 50 percent malted wheat.

A representative for Fulton Brewery was not immediately available for comment.
