Beer drinkers formerly constrained to choosing to satisfy their tastebuds by bottle, can, tap or keg now have a new option: The lollipop.

Candy company Lollyphile has new flavors for beer lovers — IPA, lager and stout. That adds to the company’s already well-rounded wine flavor offerings — chardonnay, merlot or cabernet pops, United Press International reported.

“We tried our best to stay true to each of these varieties, Stout being big & dark, IPA being hoppy as hell and Lager based on our favorite Pilsner,” Lollyphile owner Jason Darling told Gozmodo. “It was, to say the least, a very fun flavor matching experience.”

A description of the new pop line is posted on the company’s website.


It reads: “The King of Lollipops! A real banquets lollipop! An All-American slam-dunk barbecue apple pie [expletive] lollipop. Perfect for basically everything, our Lager lollipop is based on Pilsners of, let’s be honest, our collective youths.”

The company, tied to both San Francisco and Austin, bills itself as a business for people with “a sweet tooth and a short attention span,” UPI reported.
