MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Brewing Co. is making beer sparkle with its newest limited edition brew, "We Just Want to Have a Good Time," a sparkly, purple glitter wheat ale.

The beer, which was first released last Friday, is a 5.0 percent wheat ale. It combines sweet orange peel and coriander seed with wheat malt and oats.

According to a Facebook post, butterfly pea flower provides the purple color and there is edible glitter floating throughout the beer. 

The beer is part of the brewery's "Brewer's Day Off" series, which provides two one-of-a-kind releases each month.

The purple glitter beer will be available on tap at MKE Brewing Tours and MKE Ale House while supplies last. A portion of beer sales at the Ale House will be donated to a nonprofit of the brewer's choice.
