Wild and sour ales, beers made with wild yeasts that impart appealing acidity developed over extended time spent either in steel tanks or wood barrels, are a joy to pair with the right foods.
3/4 cup American Wild Ale with fruit
1 giant scoop good-quality vanilla ice cream
Raspberries for garnish (optional)
Pour the ale into a stemmed tulip glass. Carefully slip in the scoop of ice cream. It’s important to add the ice cream to the beer, rather than vice versa, to ensure that it will float and not stick to the bottom of the glass. Garnish with two or three raspberries, if desired. Serve immediately with a spoon and straw.
