What's Cool Now: Beer Ice Cream

Frozen Pints
In the summer, few things bring more joy than beer and ice cream. It seems like destiny that the two should hook up. 

A group of buddies in Atlanta discovered their calling by accident when someone spilled a bottle of beer next to an ice cream maker. They decided to pour a bottle of beer into the ice cream maker, and presto--a company was born. 

That company is now Frozen Pints, offering six flavors of beer ice cream: Peach Lambic, Honey IPA, Brown Ale Chip, Cinnamon Espresso Stout, Vanilla Bock and Malted Milk Chocolate Stout. According to the website, they use the "finest craft beers and freshest local ingredients to bring you flavor combinations you've never experienced before."  

Though don't expect a good buzz from the frozen treat. "You will be pleased (saddened?) to hear that you'd have difficulty getting tipsy - it'd take multiple pints to equal a standard beer," the FAQ reads.  

Frozen Pints has been making its debut at Atlanta-based beer events, and is looking to establish a retail presence soon. Is Beer & Jerry's on its way?

Ice cream made with beer isn't really that new, is it? It's funny how they "discovered it by accident". What will they discover next? Chocolate covered bacon?

Hmm...should we really ruin perfectly good beer with perfectly good ice cream?  It's like putting chocolate on strawberries.  Bleck!

Yum!  What a great idea.  I hope we can get this in SoCal in the near future!  Thanks for sharing.
