Frozen beer, Der Biergarten
Ever dump a beer into a corner-store slushie because the alcohol content was just too low? Der Biergarten’s doing something like that with their new frozen beer ($5.99 for a small, $11.75 for a large), except it’s both more socially acceptable and actually made to be enjoyed like that. It’s a simple concept: They’ve got little swirlers in the back slushing up two different flavors of frozen beer, which they dollop on top of draft beer. No straw, though, so you’ll be sticking your beak into an ice heap for the first few sips. So much better than my usual blueberry-raspberry-Bud-Light-Lime blend of slushie, though. 2332 K Street, http://beergardensacramento.com.
