Atlanta’s own Frozen Pints discovered that something delicious happens when you infuse fresh ice-cream with your favorite craft beers.

Since its launch this past summer, Frozen Pints has been making appearances at beer festivals and events across the city. It is available in more than 40 stores and will soon be offered at Inman Perk Coffee Shop, behind the bar for your alcoholic ice-cream scooping pleasure.

Founder Ari Fleischer came up with the idea two years ago. “It was actually an accident. We were having a barbecue, and a friend of mine happened to bring an ice cream maker.” Add in some craft-brew drinking and a little karmic spilling near the machine, and an experiment was born: “Why not pour it in and see how it turns out?”

That’s what they did, and the first batch “came out pretty tasty.” Fleischer knew he was on to something. He and partner, Aly Moler, are now focusing on combing the best beers with the best flavors to appeal to different tastes.

With flavors like “Honey IPA” and “Malted Milk Chocolate Stout,” it’s no surprise Frozen Pints have become a crowd-pleaser. They also do seasonal flavors, such as their current “Pumpkin Ale” ice cream.
