Dogfish Head Craft Brewery announced the release of Hazy-O! dairy-free ice cream, a first-of-its-kind, oat milk-based dessert inspired by one of its best-selling beers, Hazy-O!
Created in partnership with Tipsy Scoop – an artisanal ice cream brand that blends rich, handcrafted ice cream with alcohol for the perfect boozy treat – Hazy-O! dairy-free ice cream hits shelves just in time for National Ice Cream Day July 18 and will be available for purchase nationwide.
On the decision to partner, the Dogfish Head and Tipsy Scoop teams agreed that the brewery’s Hazy-O! beer would be the perfect base for a completely new ice cream innovation. Like all Dogfish Head beers, Hazy-O! features high-quality, culinary ingredients, but it broke boundaries by becoming the first nationally distributed hazy IPA brewed with oat milk when it launched earlier this year.
“At Dogfish Head, we’re known for brewing off-centered, innovative beer. We gravitate toward of-the-moment culinary ingredients that are atypical, ingredients that will bring our drinkers a flavorful brew they simply can’t get anywhere else,” said Sam Calagione, Dogfish Head founder and brewer. “And Hazy-O! is no different – the oat milk gives it a dreamy cloudiness, a silky mouthfeel, and a gorgeous, toasted, nutty flavor. It screamed to be made into an ice cream – and we were so excited to take this innovation one step further with Tipsy Scoop.”
Made with oat milk from Elmhurst 1925 – the same oat milk found in Hazy-O! beer – and packed with notes of chocolate, caramel, cinnamon, and coconut, Hazy-O! dairy-free ice cream is equal parts boozy and delicious, and what it lacks in lactose it makes up for in silky smoothness. And like a typical beer, each pint packs up to 5 percent ABV. It’s also the first Tipsy Scoop ice cream to use oat milk.
Consumers aged 21 and older are invited to purchase a pint for $12.50 or a pack of four for $49 on Tipsyscoop.com. Nationwide shipping is available for all 50 states, while supplies last.
