Our favorite beer these days is [hands down] Atwater Brewery Vanilla Java Porter.  It’s honestly the most delicious beer on the face of the planet.  It’s the perfect combination of vanilla with a little coffee – you’ve gotta try it!

The other night when we were just hanging out at home, Jeff said to me “You know what I really want…??”.  And he just came up with it out of thin air.  So we hopped in the car and took a drive over to Stew Leonard’s to pick up some plain vanilla ice cream.  I was happy to oblige.  It was a damn good idea, if I don’t say so myself!


  • 2 big scoops vanilla ice cream
  • 1 Atwater Brewery Vanilla Java Porter


In a pint glass, place 2 scoops of vanilla ice cream at the bottom of the glass.  Slowly pour over the beer on top of the ice cream until the glass is full.  Grab a spoon and a straw, and enjoy!
