It's..... The happiest blog on earth

Beer Floats.

I use "pralines & cream" ice cream (sweet, yet tangy), and drop it into a stein of Negra Modelo - a dark-yet-mellow beer.

I'm not the only one. The Times Square Brewery in New York apparently makes their stout into a chocolate milkshake.

Inspired in part by this scene from John Steinbeck's Cannery Row (1945).

The waitress, a blonde beauty with just a hint of a goiter, smiled at him. "What'll it be?"

"Beer milk shake" said Doc.


Well here it was and what the hell. Might just as well get it over with now as some time later...
