Ben & Jerry’s? More like Beer & Jerry’s. As if anyone needed another reason to think about ice cream and beer in the same thought, the Vermont company will now be concocting a dessert beer.
Teaming up with the New Belgium Brewing company, our two favorite dairymen will bring the world ‘Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale’ in fall 2015 which contains 6.2 percent alcohol by volume.

“We’re big fans of New Belgium Brewery, their values, and their fun culture, and of course, their beer,” said senior global marketing manager Jay Curley in a statement. “We’re excited for the campaign we’ve developed together. When two B corps collaborate, our fans can expect something both delicious and impactful.”
More details will be revealed as the year goes on but until then, we’re thinking that a “Half-baked Ale,” a “Phish Food Stout” or even a “Cherry Garcia Cocktail” could be good additions as well.
But if that’s not enough reason to get you excited, burritos just got a whole lot cooler, too. Eating ice cream in a cup or even a cone has become old news as Ben & Jerry’s bring you BRRR-ito. According to their site, it’ll feature “your two favorite flavors, topped with a fudge drizzle and cookie crumbs, all wrapped up in a soft and chewy waffle wrap” and will be available on April 20.
Soon, weekends will become drinking ice cream beer paired with ice cream burritos, topped off by chowing down a tub of their ice-cream for dessert. Our arteries may clog up, but it’ll be so worth it.
