Root beer may be traditional, but a float made with actual beer? Now that’s a treat! Beers like chocolate stouts and fruity lambics are halfway to being desserts already. By adding a scoop of ice cream, we’re just helping things along.

As the weather starts to warm and head towards summer, these beer and ice cream combos are sounding particularly appealing:

Chocolate Stout with Chocolate Ice Cream – Double chocolate! • Witbier with Raspberry Sorbet – A lighter float to end a meal. • Mocha Stout with Coffee Ice Cream – Post-dinner pick me up. • Hefeweizen with Vanilla Ice Cream – Think creamsicle. • Fruit Lambic with Vanilla Ice Cream – Peach or cherry lambic are my favorites for this.

More fun with beer floats!
