FTW: Beer Popsicles

Beer Popsicles by Sarah Rae Trover

Julie Hadjinian, our graphic designing ninja/layout girl extraordinaire, recently stumbled upon a fine beverage discovery too awesome to ignore. We call epic moments like these “FTW” (For The Win) and feel the need to share them with the world.

We can’t take credit for creating it, but we wanted to share a recipe for beer popsicles that has us all worked up like a school bus full of 5th graders on a field trip. Yep, we’re rowdy and we can’t sit still.

The recipe comes from the same site that brought you the “Grownup Popsicles With Campari”. This recipe comes from Sarah Rae Trover of The Kitchn, a website dedicated to inspiring cooks and nourishing homes. She uses Tecate in the recipe, but we recommend expanding your vision outside of the box by using a beer with more flavor power than an adjunct lager. Mutineer recommends “bumping up” the concoction by using an IPA, or a pale ale with a strong citrus-hop presence!


6 Limes
6 teaspoons of Light Agave Nectar
6 cans of beer (we used Tecate)


6 wooden skewers, sticks or plastic utensils
1 bowl for each can of beer
6 plastic party cups (optional)

Combine all the ingredients. Place mixture into plastic cups, insert sticks of choice, and freeze for 3-4 hours (or overnight). For a more detailed list of instructions visit: Sarah Rae Trover at The Kitchn.

    o man. i will be making lots of these. maybe too many.

  2. Erin | Friday, August 20, 2010

    That is awesome! I am so making these.

    I used some Lindemans Framboise for my beersicles. They were epic!



  4. Julie Hadjinian | Friday, August 20, 2010

    I’m so glad everyone is as stoked on these as I am! They look delish and should be the perfect thing to keep everyone happy and cool on those hot summer days! As soon as those hot days return to Seattle I will be indulging in a few of these for sure…

  5. Ashley Routson | Friday, August 20, 2010

    Definitely not complaining that the hot days in Seattle have temporarily disappeared :) Haha.

  6. Ashley Routson | Friday, August 20, 2010

    The Beer Buddha: FRAMBOISE! Yesss…. sounds amazing. Oooh maybe a half and half popsicle — chocolate stout and a raspberry lambic. Mmmm….

  7. Ashley Routson | Friday, August 20, 2010

    Erin — let me know how they turn out … oh, and what beer you use!

  8. the hoparazzi | Friday, August 20, 2010

    Never thought about doing this before. Pretty cool idea.

  9. Brian | Friday, August 20, 2010

    Whoa. Awesome. I liked the suggestion of Framboise, especially with something sweetened like Lindemans. But I’d do half Lindemans, and half of something else tart, like Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus, to get a little sweet and sour action going on!

  10. Natalie Morgan | Friday, August 20, 2010

    These sound horrible. Eck. I don’t like beer as is … let alone frozen and disguised as a popsicle. NOW, the Campari version I would not mind trying. I bet you can freeze a bunch of cocktails like a margarita and a mojito and cosmo etc… into popsicles. Just a thought.

  11. Ashley | Friday, August 20, 2010

    Natalie — Ahhh you just need to be converted over into the world of craft beer. So many people are stuck in a “rut”. When they think of “beer” they think of corporate adjunct lagers, which can be … I will use your words … “eck”. But there is a WHOLE world of beer out there, with lots of flavors. Take @TheBeerBuddha’s suggestion and try a Framboise — aka a raspberry Lambic. Super fruity, a little bit tart, low in alcohol. I guarantee you won’t believe that its a beer!

  12. Natalie Morgan | Friday, August 20, 2010

    Ashley & The Beer Buddha — Where would one find this “framboise”?

  13. the hoparazzi | Monday, August 23, 2010

    I made these this weekend. But I used honey instead of agave syrup — and no lime. I used Sam Smith’s new strawberry beer (bought it for my girlfriend — don’t look at me weird). Turned out semi-okay. Think I’ll stick to drinking the beer.
