Frenchies serves up Messina boozy floats

Frenchies Brewery is teaming up with Gelato Messina on a beer float activation with a twist next month, to celebrate the Fourth of July.

Taking over Frenchies’ bar from July 6-9, the experience will offer a carefully curated – and tested – range of beer and gelato pairings.

The menu will feature:

  • Blood Orange Sorbet & Aperitivo Seltzer
  • Coconut and Lychee Gelato & Lapèrouse
  • Coconut and Lychee Gelato & Hazy XPA
  • Strawberries and Cream Gelato & Hazy XPA
  • Mango Sorbet & Mango Milkshake IPA
  • Raspberry Sorbet & Kamchatka

Additionally, each item promises an element of theatricality, with the beer and gelato creating some unique and unexpected visual displays as they are combined – it’s a beer float, but not as you know it!

Gelato Messina’s store, located just a few doors down from Frenchies in The Cannery, Rosebery, will be open and serving their full range of 40 flavours, meanwhile Frenchies beers will be available on tap and in cans

Vincent de Soyres, Co-Owner and Head Brewer, Frenchies Brewery saof: “Ever since Messina became our neighbours in The Cannery we’ve been brainstorming creative ways to collaborate, and after we met with the team earlier this year, the idea
for a beer float creation came to life!

“From there our brewing team engaged in some research and development – there could be worse jobs, I know – and we landed on six unique combinations, which are as tasty as they are cool to watch as they evolve in the glass.”

A Gelato Messina spokesperson said: “We noticed that beer floats are often enjoyed on the Fourth of July, and thought what better way to surprise and delight customers in the midst of winter, than with a unique gelato and beer pairing experience.

“We’ve had a great time joining forces with the Frenchies team on this activation, in what is sure to be a feast for the senses.”
