A Creamsicle in a Can

Summer is almost over, but that doesn’t mean summer flavors have to end. Elysian Brewing has announced its newest limited edition brew, the KEXP Mixtape Blood Orange Milkshake IPA. The Seattle-based brewery joins forces with Seattle’s alternative and indie rock public radio station to brew a beer that tastes like a canned creamsicle. A portion of the proceeds will go toward the VERA Project to support community-driven music and art. Grab a can of the Washington-exclusive IPA while it's still available in stores near you
