Prep Time 15 minutes
Total Time 2 hours 15 minutes
Servings 6 people


  • 3/4 cup organic cane sugar
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 2-12 oz. Abita Strawberry Lager or similar light lager
  • Juice of half lemon
  • 1 cup diced organic strawberries optional

Strawberry Purée:

  • 2 cups sliced and hulled organic strawberries
  • 1/2 cup water


  1. In a small saucepan over medium heat, combine organic cane sugar and water. Cook until the sugar melts, which will take about 3 minutes. Remove the simple syrup from the heat and allow the syrup to cool down.
  2. In a blender, add sliced and hulled strawberries and water. Blend until smooth. Strain the strawberry purée through a fine mesh strainer.
  3. Add the simple syrup to a 9x13 pan and whisk in the lemon juice and strawberry purée. Next, whisk in the beer until the mixture is fully combined. Stir in the chopped strawberries, if desired. Cover the pan and place the pan into the freezer and freeze for 30 minutes.
  4. Scrape the surface of the granita with a fork to break up the clumps that have started forming. Return the pan to the freezer and repeat this process every 30 minutes for at least 2-3 hours, or until the icy particles are uniform and fluffy.
  5. To serve, scrape the granita’s surface with a fork and spoon the Strawberry Beer Granita into a chilled glass. Serve with a spoon.
