ATLANTA – Atlanta will soon reach sweltering temps, making summer days and nights nearly unbearable. A new collaboration between two Atlanta based taste makers, King of Pops and New Realm Brewing, aims to cool things down in and around town. The first in the “Push Cart Series,” BGL Belgian Ale is bursting with refreshing notes of blackberry, ginger, and lemon.
“One of the most enjoyable tasting sessions we have ever had was sitting in our Barrel Room with our neighbors, King of Pops, pairing a bunch of our beers with their popsicles,” said Carey Falcone, Co-Founder, and CEO of New Realm Brewing. “The clear favorite was their Blackberry Ginger Lemon pop with our Belgian style beer, so we put together a recipe that would allow for the popsicle base to blend excellently with beer. What our brewers came up with is a cool beer with a refreshing fruity character.”
“We want to keep pushing ourselves to help create things that make people happy,” said Steven Carse, Co-Founder of King of Pops. “Working with New Realm to create a beer that is amazing by itself and completely unique when you add a pop to it hopefully does exactly that. So excited to share this with Atlanta.”
Bright and fruity, BGL Belgian Ale pairs well with summertime in the city, lake days and BGL popsicles from your nearest King of Pops pushcart. BGL is now available for a limited time on draft and in 12-oz 6 pack cans in our Atlanta brewery to-go coolers, as well as our favorite retailers around Georgia.

About New Realm Brewing:
New Realm Brewing Company is an American craft brewery started in 2016 by co-founders Carey Falcone, Bob Powers, and Mitch Steele. On a mission to rethink tradition and bend the rules, the team planted their first production facility in a 20,000-square foot space on Atlanta’s east side Beltline trail in December of 2017, featuring a 25hl brewhouse, 3,000 square foot restaurant, rooftop patio, and beer garden. A second location opened in Virginia Beach mid-2018 enabling New Realm to increase their ability to innovate and create new beers. The Virginia Beach location is a 58,000-square foot space providing an additional 40,000 barrels of annual capacity. Like Atlanta, the second location features a large outdoor beer garden, private event space, and a tasting room. Brewmaster Mitch Steele received the Russell Scherer Award for Innovation in Brewing in 2014 and co-authored the book IPA: Brewing Techniques, Recipes and the Evolution of India Pale Ale in 2012. In 2018 New Realm Brewing was honored with the “Rising Star” award by Brewbound and in January of 2019, the brewery was awarded “Best New Brewer in Georgia” for 2018 as well as the 11th “Best New Brewer in the World” by Ratebeer. New Realm Brewing’s core principles are quality, creativity, authenticity, and striving for perfection, all with a customer-centric commitment and approach.
