Drinks from our Visitors:

A Beer Float

From Kate of Virginia. A Beer Float!? Yes that’s Right! A beer float!

I like a good root beer float, but I've never heard of creating a float out of real beer.

So... when I was drinking a full bodied, slightly sweet Ale last night, I wondered what it would taste like if I made it into a float.

Delicious!

Just take a scope of vanilla ice cream, put it in a glass and pour your Ale over the top. Serve with a spoon, straw and whipped cream on top if you like.

I think a sweet flavored Ale or even a coffee Ale works best, nothing bitter!
