Beer-sicle Sparks Controversy
McLEAN, Va. (AP) - June 20, 2007 -- It sounds like it might be just thing for a hot day -- the beer-sicle.
But a suburban Washington restaurant is catching some heat from Virginia liquor authorities. Frank Morales began selling beer pops last week at his Rustico Restaurant in Alexandria. The frozen beer pops come shaped like a traditional Popsicle for four bucks, or a larger beer cone for six. But the Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control tells the A-P the beer-sicles may violate state regulations. The regs require that beer be served in its original container or served to the customer immediately once it's poured. The department plans to send an agent to investigate. The people at the restaurant say they're working on a way to keep serving their beer pops, while complying with the law.
