McConnell’s Ice Cream Creates New Flavor With Figueroa Mountain Brewing Co. Beer
“We’d made a few beer ice creams in the past, but this was an opportunity both to work with a brewery we’re huge personal fans of and take the time to really hone in on what it takes to make an exceptional beer flavor,” explains McConnell’s owner, Michael Palmer. “Like any flavor, it’s always about achieving a balance of flavor profile. The Davy Brown Ale was a perfect match to the creaminess in the ice cream. Folding in the salty brittle took it to that next level. The Davy Brown Ale had all the properties needed to help our process and we’re super happy with the results. We hope McConnell’s and Fig Mountain customers are as well!”
Figueroa Mountain Brewing Company’s Retail Operations Manager, Tony Grimes, agrees with Palmer: “Combining two of my favorite things—Fig beer and McConnell’s ice cream—is a dream come true. It’s the best of both worlds.” He adds that Davy Brown Ale has won nine medals and is one of the brewery’s core beers. “I love the mocha-flavor of this beer. The caramel and chocolate malts make this the perfect beer for ice cream.”
