We’ve seen beer and wine flavored ice cream but now Ben & Jerry’s and New Belgium Brewing Co. are making our dreams come true with ice cream flavored beer. The duo plans to release their Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale in the fall. While it may sound extreme, the brewing industry is no stranger to adding chocolate flavors to beer. Dogfish Head Theobroma and Samuel Adams Chocolate Bock are two examples of beers that weren’t afraid to sweeten the mix.
Both New Belgium and Ben & Jerry’s have a history of social activism and are passionate about quality, so we know this beer will combine the best of both worlds. No more having to choose between beer and ice cream (not that we ever really do)! We plan to be the first in line when Ben & Jerry’s Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale hits the shelves this fall. We can all scream (or cheer) for this ice cream beer. Just don’t forget that it’s located in the liquor aisle—not the frozen dessert section!
