This Sunday, April 1, Breakside Brewery and local ice cream maker Salt & Straw will be sharing the last of their collaboration projects in a charity event at Breakside’s NE Portland Pub. The ‘ice cream beer social’ will feature beer floats made with Breakside’s Salted Caramel Sweet Stout and Salt & Straw’s Bailey’s with Irish Stout ice cream. The two foodstuffs are both collaborations between Breakside brewmaster Ben Edmunds and Salt & Straw churnmaster Tyler Malek. Malek based the recipe for the ice cream on Breakside’s award winning Dry Stout and used the same malted and roasted barleys that the brewery uses in the beer. For the sweet stout, Edmunds blended a traditional export stout with a salted caramel syrup based on Salt & Straw’s sea salt with caramel ribbon ice cream.
All sales from the stout float will benefit the Food Works Program! The event will run Sunday, April 1, from noon until 11 at Breakside (820 NE Dekum), or until the stout and ice cream run out!
