Last summer, Atlanta’s New Realm Brewing unveiled a new beer in collaboration with Atlanta popsicle makers King of Pops. As part of the “Push Cart Series,” BGL Belgian Ale was a summer refresher flavored with King of Pops blackberry, ginger, lemon popsicle base.
Now, New Realm has another cool Push Cart collaboration on tap. But this time it’s based on King of Pops bestselling Chocolate Sea Salt popsicle. And it’s perfect for winter sipping.
In honor of that, Chocolate Sea Salt Imperial Ale is this week’s Beer Pick
Chocolate Sea Salt Imperial Ale
New Realm Brewing, Atlanta
Available for a limited time in 12-ounce six-pack cans and on draft
The second offering in New Realm’s “Push Cart Series,” Chocolate Sea Salt Imperial Ale is an 8.6% alcohol winter beer flavored with King of Pops chocolate sea salt popsicle base. Essentially an imperial brown ale, it was brewed with chocolate malt, lactose, and cocoa powder, plus a touch of sea salt. As expected it displays plenty of chocolate flavor and a creamy mouthfeel. And if you’re lucky, you might even find the very rare nitro version, which is even creamier and cooler.
For a giddy treat, try dunking a King of Pops chocolate sea salt popsicle in a pint of Chocolate Sea Salt Imperial Ale. Or pair it with vanilla ice cream, cookies or other desserts.
