Beer and ice cream finally unite in what could be a perfect if not somewhat unholy marriage this weekend at Boerum/Cobble Hill spot 61 Local, in what Steve’s Craft Ice Cream is presenting as a “Pint Mash-Up”.
According to the Steve’s Ice Cream official blog, Saturday, August 13th promises to be an ice cream and beer extravaganza, featuring the debut of their new beer-inspired flavors and much much more.
Starting at 11am, the Steve’s pop-up ice cream shop will be selling scoops, ice cream sandwiches, and floats (with beer even!) alongside the Kickstand Coffee bicycle cart. Floats come with a raffle ticket that gets you a chance to win prizes from such outstanding locals as Cut Brooklyn, Mike’s Hot Honey, Liddabit Sweets, Ovenly Bar Snacks, Anarchy in a Jar Jam, and more!
61 Local’s regular roster of refreshments and food will also be available through the course of the event. Things get real though at 6pm, when free samples of Steve’s new flavors get handed out! FO’ FREE. Check them out:
BEER PRETZEL CARAMEL Sixpoint Brownstone ice cream swirled with Liddabit Sweets Beer & Pretzel Caramel
MAPLE PORTER PECAN maple syrup and porter ale with toasted pecan pieces
BKLYN BLACKOUT milk chocolate ice cream swirled with Ovenly’s chocolate stout cake pieces and dark chocolate pudding
An all-day beer and ice cream fest with local goods, food, and free stuff? This is my kind of party. Spread the word and invite your friends, this ice cream isn’t going to eat itself.
