Cooler heads prevail: Inverted beer float from Homeland Creamery

LOCAVORE’S DELIGHT: The Series # 12. Follow us all summer long as we explore the bounty of our region’s farms.


The best farm finds happen by accident, which is how we found this great recipe for Coffee Ice Cream at Homeland Creamery. The family farm provides all of Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen’s milk, half and half, heavy cream, buttermilk, and ice cream.

We were talking recipes and swapping stories by the ice cream counter at the farm store in Julian, NC when manager Terry Bowman shared this sweet treat. It’s just too good to keep to ourselves.

Homeland Creamery Cake Batter ice cream with a little Red Oak Hummin’ Bird Helles poured on top. Tweet this recipe.

Tastes just like coffee ice cream. Red Oak is available in select places in the growler size. One of these brews works well, too:

Duck Rabbit Milk Stout
Olde Hickory Stout Porter
Thunderstruck Coffee Porter

  1. Love your idea of a version of an ice cream float! Best cool weather guilty pleasure from Foggy Ridge Cider is thus:
    Take two scoops (at least) great vanilla ice cream
    Pour over a healthy chug of Foggy Ridge Pippin Gold apple port
    If you are lucky, add a biscotti or sugar cookie from Chef Jay.
    Dig in.
