A little scream about ice cream

In the recent cover story [”I Scream, You Scream,” July 14th, Xpress], I was sorry to see the absence of Craggie Brewing Company’s Antebellum Ice Cream, which is absolutely decadent. Ashley (from the Hop) makes it with Craggie’s Antebellum Ale, which is brewed with molasses and ginger. [The Hop] also makes a vegan version that is incredible. Pack’s Tavern also serves Antebellum Ice Cream floats that are made with the beer. And proceeds from the ice cream go to help a child in one of the YMCA’s programs.

Yum!

Food writer Mackensy Lunsford replies: Thank you for the feedback. Yes, indeed, the Antebellum Ice Cream is delicious. We have mentioned the charitable collaboration between the Hop and Craggie Brewing in other food as well as Brews News pieces. However, as you point out, perhaps it bears repeating. The YMCA is a wonderful community organization — and eating ice cream is a delicious way to support its programs.
