To celebrate the 50th birthday of Cadbury Creme Eggs, the chocolatier has partnered with a brewery in order to create a new beer inspired by the popular Easter candy.

Goose Island UK’s new Golden Goo-Beer-Lee Creme Stout is brewed with cacao nibs and vanilla beans, according to the brewery. The stout features a “blend of malted barley, oats, wheat and milk sugar” that the brewery said “mirrors” the candy’s super-sweet and ultra-gooey innards.

A promotional video shows a tasting of the beer drank out of a cracked-open creme egg.

“The tasty flavors of the stout complement the iconic Cadbury Crème Egg; we wanted to big up the chocolate and creaminess of the beer while keeping it super drinkable,” Andrew Walton, the head brewer at Goose Island UK who developed the candy-crossover beer, said in a press release.

The brewery wanted to create a beer that would be “unique and delicious” to anyone who tries it, Walton explained.

“With the Golden Goo-Beer-Lee Creme Stout we knew that we would be reaching a wide range of people with different levels of experience with craft beer,” he said.

The beer goes on sale Wednesday at gooseislandshop.com and will be available for a limited time.

Unfortunately, while Goose Island UK is the British arm of the Chicago-based craft brewer Goose Island, the beer appears to only be available in the UK, at least for now.

Cadbury said it makes more than 500 million creme eggs each year, about two-thirds of which are sold in the UK. The chocolate eggs are apparently slightly different in the U.S. compared to those available in the UK. America’s Cadbury eggs are made by Hershey and reportedly use a slightly different recipe.
