A new Atlanta-based company is inviting you to have your beer and drink it too.
Introducing Frozen Pints, a cool treat that combines two favorites: ice cream and craft beer.
The idea to make ice cream with beer started as an accident – during a party someone spilled beer near the ice cream maker. Since that fateful day the Frozen Pints team has been sipping, snacking, mixing and freezing, and now their top flavors are available on tap (rather, in a freezer) throughout the city.
Frozen Pints Ice Cream is made with genuine craft beer and contains no artificial flavorings. Complementary ingredients are added, but the true flavor of the beer comes through in each scoop.
Frozen Pints offers five year-round flavors and select seasonal flavors. Try the Brown Ale Chip, a classic brown ale paired with sweet chocolate chips and hints of roasted hazelnut. Chocolate fans will love the Malted Milk Chocolate Stout, a creamy mix of the beer and movie snack. Rounding out the year-round flavors are Peach Lambic, Honey IPA and Vanilla Bock.
This autumn look for the Pumpkin Ale. Described as “fall in a pint,” the ice cream has flavors of cinnamon, allspice and nutmeg.
And just as when buying beer, be ready to show your ID. Frozen Pints Ice Cream has an alcohol content between 1 and 3 percent, depending on the flavor.
Frozen Pints cost approximately $8 per pint. Look for them in the freezer at wine and spirits stores around Atlanta.
