Ice cream and ice cold beer both bring relief to hot summer days, especially in Fort Worth. In a natural and super cool collaboration local brewery, Martin House Brewing Company, combines with Fort Worth’s craft ice cream shop, Melt Ice Creams, to bring you Melted, a strawberry and waffle cone ice cream ale. Martin House Brewing Company released this limited-edition ice cream beer August 2.

This new ice cream beer brings together happy hints of summer with strawberry and waffle cone flavors. I was a little unsure about what to expect from a brew inspired by ice cream. I found it surprisingly refreshing and balanced with a great aroma. It’s also an easy to sip summer beer to enjoy on a porch with friends.

Martin House Brewing Company brewed the beer with strawberry puree and crushed Melt’s signature waffle cones and included it in the grain bill. The ale is 5.5% ABV. You can grab a six pack of Melted locally at Central Market, Trader Joe’s or Spec’s. This is a limited release which means you should get some now while it’s available. It’s a great way to survive the blazing Fort Worth summer in style.
