Beer meets ice cream


You can beat the heat today by grabbing a free cone of delicious beer-flavoured sorbet at La Gelatiera in East Village.

The artisan ice cream shop in West Park Walk has teamed up with beloved local brewer CRATE Brewery so make a one-off special flavour to celebrate National Beer Day on Thursday June 15.

Stephane Leyvraz from La Gelatiera explains; “We love to make one of gelato creations to celebrate national events, so when CRATE Brewery suggested we partner up and use their American Nut Brown beer we immediately thought it would make a delicious sorbet. We look forward to celebrating with beer lovers in our East Village Gelatiera on Thursday.”

Adrian Redfern from CRATE Brewery; “CRATE is always trying fun and innovative ways to make and enjoy a beer so we are really thrilled to be working with such creative gelato makers at La Gelatiera.”

If you’re dubious about a beer-flavoured sorbet, Adrian can reassure you: “Our American Nut Brown Ale is the perfect beer for this project. It’s bursting with chocolatey sweetness and decadent hazelnuts and always hits the spot when a desert beer is in order. The idea of turning this brew into a sorbet is so indulgent that it just had to be done”

If you would like to get a scoop of the quirky, vegan-friendly flavour, simply head down to La Gelatiera in East Village from 1pm and ask for a taste.
