Beat the Heat With Beer Popsicles in Alexandria!

Comfort food is not only warm and squishy mashed potatoes or mac-and-cheese. When the Mid-Atlantic heat and humidity get a little overwhelming, nothing is more fun than a throw back to younger days with Rustico’s beer popsicles, available through September.

This grown up version of a childhood favorite is the result of a playful collaboration between Executive Chef, Frank Morales and Beer Director, Greg Enger. “When it comes to food, I’m often inspired to create adult takes on kid’s classics,” says Morales.

The beer pops are made from simple syrup, fresh fruit and high-quality brews:
  • Raspbeer-y” is made with the St. Louis Framboise, a Belgian, fruit-style beer
  • Plum” is made from Chapeau Mirabelle, a sweet, effervescent and yeasty Belgian Lambic
  • Fudgesicle” features Bell's Kalamazoo Stout, a dark, viscous beer from Michigan with creamy, bittersweet chocolate notes.
Other seasonal flavors will be offered on a rotating basis, including “Banana” with Chapeau Banana Lambic and "Apple" featuring Unibroue Éphémère from Quebec.

For the young at heart, summer has never been so sweet!
