The base beer for our ‘Hush-Hush’ is a Sour Blonde Ale inspired by “L.A. Confidential” by James Ellroy. To make a great slushie, you need lots of sugar. For the bomp pop version, we melted down boxes and boxes of this iconic summertime popsicle. The flavors of cherry, lime, and blue raspberry combine for one firework of a flavor. (Our adult version of this classic will have you remembering those epic ice cream truck chases from your childhood.)
