On July 4th 1776, America declared its independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain. In 1992, Fat Head’s declared its independence from lame, tasteless beer when it opened shop in Pittsburgh’s notorious South Side. Since then, our thirsts remain quenched thanks to Fat Head’s creative (and award-winning) brews. As we started getting ready for this summer’s 4th of July celebration, we reminisced about all the barbecued meats, fresh fruit, stocked beer coolers, and popsicles that we indulge in each year. And BOOM- the idea hit us, like fireworks over the Ohio! Why not create a refreshing beer popsicle that the adults can enjoy too. There is no better beer that screams summer quite like Fat Head’s Bumble Berry. It’s brewed with fresh honey and sun-ripened blueberries. Basically, it’s the best tastes of summer captured in bottles of beautifully crafted beer.We stayed true to this brew by incorporating the same ingredients already found in this refreshing beer to ensure popsicle status worthiness. A touch of honey and fresh blueberries makes this the tastiest brew you’ll ever have on a popsicle stick. Please lick responsibly.
