July is not only National Ice Cream Month, but it is also National Beer Month. So, Our Name Is Farm, a digital media and event production firm had a great idea to merge them together and asked Tipsy Scoop, the boozy ice cream parlor, to come up with some creation for Lantern Hall, the largest beer hall of Bushwick, Brooklyn that consults with them. Bars always fall short when it comes to dessert, so it is a very interesting way to fill the gap.
We tried a flight made with local beers; the flavors were:
Mosaic Creamsicle - Ice cream blended with pineapple, orange and mango puree. Infused with Gun Hill Brewing’s Mosaic.
Happy Hour - Ice cream infused with Jack’s Abby House Lager and blended with Tipsy Scoop’s house pub mix: crushed peanuts, salty pretzels and toffee bits.
She’s a Maniac! (Sorbet) - Honey-lemon sorbet infused with KCBC Janiak Maniac pilsner.
Salty Pretzels On Fleek - Chocolate ice cream infused with Stillwater On Fleek Imperial Stout, blended with salty pretzel bits.
It was quite surprising, the ice cream having a nice hint of beer, not overpowering at all, but still present. Meshing the two is like having a drink with dessert, with flavors that are refreshing and some of them comforting because they remind us of our childhood, like the creamsicle one. My favorites were the Happy Hour and Salty Pretzel On Fleek, as I love the sweet and savory combination.
If you'd like to try a flight, go quickly as they will serve it until supply lasts, most likely a week. Price wise, it costs $8, a reasonable price for four scoops of delicious ice cream.
Enjoy (I did)!
