This is delicious. I am actually surprised by how much I loved this ice cream. I’ve been wanting to do an alcohol based ice cream for a while, but have been a bit intimidated because alcohol doesn’t freeze well. Beer seemed like a good place to start. I think this flavor works best with a dark beer, something like a porter or a stout. Since it’s ice cream, I would recommend choosing something dessert-like such as an oatmeal stout or chocolate porter. I chose Granville Island Mocha Porter. I personally think this flavor tastes like a beer ice cream float. I would recommend pairing it with a good hamburger.
2 cups heavy cream
1 cup whole milk
0.5 cup sugar
0.75 cup dark beer
In a bowl create the base by combining the heavy cream, milk, and sugar. Whisk until the sugar has dissolved. Add in the beer and stir. Refrigerate until you are ready to churn.
Add the base to your ice cream maker and churn to the manufactures instructions.
Refrigerate for a few hours.
Serve and enjoy!
