Default Ever have a beer milkshake?

http://www.post-gazette.com/stories/...shakes-654096/

Sam Adams, ice cream and caramel mixed in a milkshake maker...not sure if this sounds good or not. Ive gotta try this sometime this weekend. Maybe sub in a wit or a nice chocolatey stout for the Sam?

You know what.... I think a nice oatmeal stout, or Choklat from southern tier, would make a pretty good shake!

I was thinking about making ice cream with some Chocolate Oak Aged Yeti. I bet it would be mighty nice.

RedHook makes an ice cream with their BlackHook porter, then serves a scoop of it in a pint of BlackHook. It's incredible.

Actually Guinness and Vanilla Ice-cream is is quite popular. Dragonmead Microbrewery in Michigan evidently early Saturday afternoon serves a shake/float with their stout and icecream to the Saturday Regulars.

We've been talking for a week about the Sam Adam's Octoberfest shake here.

Yard House (chain place that has over 100 beers on tap, not sure if they're outside California) has a couple ice cream floats on their menu. One uses Young's Double Chocolate Stout and the other uses Timmermans Framboise. My wife loves both of them. Actually, she really liked my coffee stout with a couple scoops of vanilla ice cream also.

I recently brewed a coconut stout that makes a mighty good beer float.

I recently did a mocha porter beer float with coffee ice cream. The coffee in the ice cream qualified it as a great breakfast beer!

There's a bar in DC that makes a neapolitan layered beer. Young's Double Chocolate Stout, a strawberry lambic, and a witbier. I bet a scoop of ice cream would taste phenomenal in that.
