The best way to enjoy ice cold beer is with a spoon.
With the unofficial kick-off to summer just days away, this lusciously smooth ice cream is the perfect vehicle to highlight the flavors of sweet, malty beers. We knew that the bread and honey notes in Andygator, a helles doppelbock from Abita, would shine through in our frozen creation, and provide more malt character without any unpleasant bitterness. The trick is to start with a higher alcohol beer with low hop levels, then reduce half of the beer to intensify the flavors. Adding the rest of the beer to the cooling custard retains the alcohol, resulting in authentic beer essence.
