Ice cream with your beer, sir?
By Michael Madigan
July 8, 2003

THERE have been plenty of odd culinary pairings in recent times, but ice cream and beer?

Believe it. The dessert was created by the Doddington Dairy in Northumberland and is available only in England on a limited release.

But a favourable reaction from the public, which is now considered almost certain, would mean the ice cream could soon be headed for the export market, with Australia a guaranteed buyer.

Doddington teamed with Edinburgh-based Scottish Courage brewery to produce Newcastle Brown Ice Cream, a caramel-flavoured sweet with a subtle hint of Newcastle Brown Ale.

The BBC reports that the alcohol all but disappears during the processing, leaving the ice cream with a 1 per cent alcohol content, allowing the diner to enjoy a generous serving and still not fear the breathalyser.

Newcastle Brown Ale already has been used as an ingredient in locally produced products, such as bread.

"We were looking for an ice cream flavour that was distinctive, and had a strong identity with the region," says Doddington Dairy director Jackie Maxwell.

"It has been a fantastic challenge working on a product like this, with one of the world's most famous brands.

"Every part of the process has been great for us, from the design of the cartons through to testing the ale syrup for just the right flavour."

Maxwell said it had gone down very well with the Capital of Culture judges.

The judges, looking for products to promote festivities in England, which is the 2008 European Capital of Culture, are reported to have found the ice cream to their liking, Maxwell says.

"We got some feedback from organisers and they said they had tasted it and enjoyed it," she says.

The Courier-Mail
I'd try it, of course. But I can't help wondering why Ben & Jerry's, the kings of ice cream flavor experimentation, haven't done it.

Looking forward to Breyer's All Natural Guinness Ice Cream.

Somehow I don't think "Blue Bunny Budweiser" or "Baskin and Robbins' Busch" would be as much of a taste treat.

Hail Citizen!

I have had Shiner Bock ice cream about a year ago.
It was made at a local creamery. It smelled like the morning after a party when you are cleaning up all the empty and half-empty bottles around the house. I almost expected a cigarette butt or two to emerge while I was eating it. The subtle taste of beer should be reserved for sausages and drunken kisses.

Sounds great to me. I'd buy it. In the morning, I'd roll over and breath on my girlfriend. See if the ice cream causes beer breath or not.

Mostly because those beers taste like shit even before they are frozen...

I'm looking forward to Guiness Ice Cream...
