However, there are two major flaws with the recipe (click the link above):
1. It requires juicing a bunch of lemons and grapefruits, as well as shaving zest from the peels. I'm guessing the type of person with a kitchen set up to juice and zest fresh fruit is generally not the type of person interested in beer-sicles. It reminds me of this graphic (and the accompanying blog) from three years ago:
2. If I'm making boozy popsicles out of lemons and grapefruits (with a bunch of sugar too), Summer Ale would not be my liquor of choice to add. Vodka seems like a much more efficient and cost-effective option.
Here's my alternate suggestion for you, Sam Adams: Put the fresh juice and lemon zest in the beer yourself and brew a nice grapefruit summer shandy. I'll buy a ton of those.
