What is more refreshing than an ice-cold beer on a hot summer day? How about when that beer is paired with a scoop of your favorite ice cream? The Brass Tap franchisees, Jessie and Jason Rowe, present delicious craft beer pairings with your favorite types of ice cream.
Rocky road and plain chocolate ice cream pair perfectly with stouts and porters because of the nutty quality of the ice cream and the smokiness from the beer. For those looking for a local option, try Pumpkin Springs Porter from Grand Canyon Brewing Company.
Sorbets pair well with the similar flavor profile offered by Kettled Sours. For example, Destihl Blackberry Sour pairs well with blackberry sorbet.
Pistachio ice cream pairs well with any wheat beer or Hefeweizen.
You can always pair similar fruit flavor beers and ice creams, like the local San Tan Mr. Pineapple, with a coconut ice cream.
