It’s a fact: two good things are better than one. And there’s nothing better than pairing up all your favorite things and enjoying them together. Like spending the day with all your favorite people or listening to your favorite music in your favorite place.
In honor of St. Patrick's Day, we’re pairing up our favorite ice cream flavors with their perfect beer mates (no, none of them are green). Because there’s nothing better than enjoying our favorite dessert alongside our favorite beverage.
Item number 1
IPA With Americone Dream
When you see IPA, you know one thing’s for sure: you’re in for a happy, hoppy experience. But balancing out that bitter hoppiness can be a challenge. We’ve found that the sweet-and-saltiness of Americone Dream manages it perfectly.
Item number 2
Stout With Coffee Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz
When you’re not balancing out an outlier of a flavor, the best way to pair with it is often to match it. That’s why the chocolate and coffee flavors of a dark stout or porter are perfectly matched to Coffee Coffee BuzzBuzzBuzz.
Item number 3
Lager With The Tonight Dough
Lagers often have a light, crisp, unassuming flavor, perfect for pairing with the hubbub of a busy flavor like The Tonight Dough. How else would you be able to enjoy all those dough chunks, cookie swirls, and not one but two ice cream flavors?
Item number 4
Pale Ale With Cherry Garcia
Most American pale ales are light and refreshing with a subtle citrus undertone. And luckily for us, citrus and cherry are a stellar flavor match. Pair your pale ale with a bowl of Cherry Garcia, you won’t regret it.
Item number 5
Fruity Beer With Strawberry Cheesecake
Fruit-infused beers can be so much fun, especially when you’re craving something with a little extra pizazz. Strawberry Cheesecake picks up on these beers’ fruitiness while balancing it out with the mellowness of cheesecake.
Item number 6
Sour Beer With Pumpkin Cheesecake
If you haven’t tried sour beer yet, you are in for a wild ride. Their main flavor profile is, well, sour, and incredibly different from any other type of beer out there. Because it’s so bold, it pairs well with the mellow sweetness of Pumpkin Cheesecake.
Item number 7
Saison With Vanilla Toffee Bar Crunch
Saisons were originally farmhouse ales, brewed with whatever ingredients were handy around the farm. So even today, saison flavor profiles can pretty widely. In general, though, they are dry and quite effervescent with added spices or fruit notes, pairing well with the sweet but not too bold flavor of Vanilla Toffee Bar Crunch.
Item number 8
Pilsner With Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
Pilsner is what you get when you take a lager and turn up the hops and spicy floral flavors until it’s no longer really a lager. Pair this refreshing, hoppy beer with Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough to balance out the bitterness of the hops and amp up that spice with cookie dough goodness.
