Ben & Jerry’s now has beer, ice cream, AND beer-flavored ice cream

Thanks to a partnership with New Belgium brewing, the Vermont ice cream giant is expanding its horizons again. October 22, 2015 | 12:37 PM

Vermont ice cream maker Ben & Jerry’s never shies away from pushing ice cream to the limit. Last spring, the duo created a Passover-friendly charoset flavor and even tossed around the idea of a cannabis-infused ice cream. This is on top of several treats inspired by musicians, late-night TV hosts, and other celebrities.

Now, Ben & Jerry’s is teaming up with Colorado-based New Belgium Brewing to cook up two very special creations. The local creamery with be purveying Salted Caramel Brown-ie Ale ice cream, a special blend infusing the flavors of New Belgium Brown Ale, salted caramel, and fudge brownie (and available for all ages).

On the other end, New Belgium will be brewing a Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale, inspired by Ben & Jerry’s chocolate-y salted caramel and vanilla flavors (and obviously only for those 21-plus).

Both products will benefit Protect Our Winters (POW), a group that is mobilizing the snow sports community to help fight climate change. New Belgium’s beer will be sold starting in November for three months but, unfortunately, it will not make its way to New England shelves. However, the ice cream is already in stores everywhere and will remain there through the holiday season.
