Briney Melon Gose and Blueberry Popsicles are an adult frozen treat to beat the heat with a sour ale and fruity blueberries on a stick for Popsicle Week!
[Update: In this post I originally said I was taking a break for the month of July. My break is extended to include August as well. I plan to return sometime in September.]
It’s Popsicle Week, yo!
First of all, I would like to say that this is not a sponsored post and I am not stalking Anderson Valley Brewing Company. I just really love their beer and I’m totally digging their gose selection right now.
I’m also keeping things pretty short today, because what more do you need than some Briney Melon Gose and Blueberry Popsicles to celebrate Popsicle Week and head into a holiday weekend.
I’m not going to be the Popsicle Week buzz-kill by dwelling on the negative, but y’all know 2017 has not been kind to my family. So I’m kicking off Popsicle Week and checking out for a bit. I’m taking a break from all things blog for the month of July. I’ll be spending some quality time on the lake, doing a bit of kayaking, and headed to the beach for a welcome week-long vacation. Don’t worry about the fur babies – as always, we have a house/pet sitter.
Happy Popsicle Week, friends and have a great July. I’ll be back sometime in August, but until then there are all kinds of Popsicle recipes you need to try over at Billy’s website Wit and Vinegar. Go check out his Popsicle Week page. Cheers!
Briney Melon Gose and Blueberry Popsicles
- 1 12 ounce can Briney Melon Gose from Anderson Valley Brewing Company
- 1/4 cup simple syrup
- 1 pint blueberries divided
Reserve about 20 blueberries and combine remaining blueberries and simple syrup in a blender and puree until smooth
Add beer and blend until combined
Pour blueberry and beer mixture into the bottom 1/3 of each popsicle mold and transfer to freezer for about 1 hour
Remove from freezer and drop a couple of blueberries into each mold
Top with remaining blueberry/beer mixture
Insert sticks and cover with lid overnight or otherwise freeze according to popsicle mold instructions
- If you can’t find this Briney Melon Gose another sour beer will be fine
- I found that if I filled my popsicle molds too close to the top the lid freezes to any overflow and is a complete pain to get off
- Be careful when pulling the popsicles out of the mold. Don’t rush or they will break. Just take your time and they’ll be fine.

Yay to taking time off this summer and enjoying life (and your awesome lake house!) And yay to Popsicle Week!!! And yay to these kick-ass gose ice pops!!!! I think you need a gose intervention and if I lived near you, I’d come over and remove all your gose beer and drink it myself. That’s what good friends are for…to drink up all your good beer 😉
Rachelle!! great looking popsicles! I hope you have a great lake vacation!! and a well deserved break!! Hugs my friend!

These look awesome Rachelle! My husband would be all over these!
These are beautiful, and I bet they are so tangy and refreshing – perfect for enjoying on the front porch after dinner.
YES to these popsicles. I too love all things Anderson Valley. Perhaps we should plan a trip to visit…
Such a pretty color! It looks very refreshing 🙂
These look amazing and I’m sure they are super delicious! Never had beer popsicles, but these are on my list now! Pinned!

Good for you to take some time off, Rachelle! You certainly deserve it after the past few months. Hang in there! And I hope your vacation involves more than a few cans of gose and a couple of these popsicles, too. They sound amazing! 🙂

Popsicle week should last all summer long! These look fabulous!Enjoy your vacation!
Popsicles always remind me of summer which is perfect right now, since the weather is set on changing pretty soon. I’m pretty excited about popsicle week, thinking about throwing a popsicle party on my next girls night. I know my friends would enjoy it, especially since the recipe calls for beer 😉

These popsicles seem so finger-licking! Excellent combination of ingredients! Do the blueberries have to be frozen or I can use fresh ones?
Thanks Agness! Fresh are totally fine!
