Default Beer floats....?

Been a big fan of Breckenridge Brewery's Vanilla Porter for a while... Made a comment to another beer-o-phile at a party and he mentioned using it in a beer float with some vanilla ice cream...

So last night at Taco Mac, I ordered one along with a pint glass of ice cream... The waiter looked at me like I had a third eye growing out of my forehead, and then gets a big poop eating grin on his face... As he delivers it to the table, he let us know that a few servers and bartenders were intrigued by the idea and planned on trying it out later...

Needless to say, it was wonderful...

Anyone else have a suggestion to try this with? Beer-o-phile friend mentioned Rogue's Hazelnut Brown...

Try a Young's Double Chocolate Stout. The Flying Saucer in Memphis has it on the menu. I've heard good things.

I told that to my wife, thinking that she would think it was kind of wierd. All she said was it tastes really good............What do I know ???
I guess in the summer time, they sometimes do that in Germany.

An ice cream place in Chapel Hill, NC used to make beer-flavored ice cream from the local micro when I lived there. It was rough on its own, but great in a beer float. Guiness works decently, but a sweet stout like Young's would be best. Saranac occasionally makes a Caramel Porter that would be great.

A friend told me about Newcastle over his ice cream years ago. Shortly thereafter I had some Breyers vanilla with a Saranac Black Forest Stout and it was wonderful.

Not something I do often, but I wouldn't hesitate. I've also been talking about mixing a bottle of the Chai Porter that finished too high into a batch of homemade ice cream. I'll let you know how that turns out.

Nothing will ever top Alesmith Speedway Stout with really good ice cream. Holy hell it is amazing.
