  1. Love it!

    I used to think mixing beer with sweet things was verboten, until my friend brought over her homemade vanilla ice cream, which we put into glasses and poured my home brewed chocolate stout over. The Stout/Ice Cream float was born, and I’ve never looked back.

    Must try this! Thanks Jo. Happy St. Patty’s Day.
