Ice cream floats for grownups

Today was the hubby’s best friend’s birthday, so we took him out to celebrate at the fantabulous Stone Brewery. Stone brews the hilariously named Arrogant Bastard Ale, and we discovered last year that the brewery is not only local to us, but that they have an absolutely gorgeous garden along with a great restaurant. We figured it would be a great place to spend a Sunday afternoon celebrating.

The food was good, the weather was nice (overcast and sprinkles, but that kept the people away), and of course the company was enjoyable. And then, because this is a birthday celebration for big kids, the birthday boy got an ice cream float.

Wait, let me clarify. He got a beer float. Not root beer, regular old beer.

Here, let me illustrate. Take a glass half full of Stone Smoked Porter and a bowl of vanilla ice cream.

Slowly, add ice cream to beer.

Be careful, the ice cream can create a bit of foamy head…

Aaak, attack of the foam!

Anyway, after you clean up your mess, continue adding ice cream until float is to your liking.

Then, enjoy!

I can attest- the “beer float”- sans the “root” is not bad. You’d hope it would work even better, but alas. Not bad though. I however, did NOT spill my beer float. Happy Birthday bud! Great pictures as always, baby.
