Handcrafted GelatoStout and Pretzels
We’ve tried to replicate the flavor profile of Braxton Brewing’s Dead Blow Tropical Stout. Braxton is a local, family-owned craft brewery near Graeter’s home office. For the ice cream, the same malt that goes into the Dead Blow brewing process helps create the dark color and background flavor of Stout & Pretzels. By including natural beer flavoring with associated fruity essence, the resulting creation brings to life this popular craft beer flavor. We’ve paired it with a chocolate covered pretzel piece. These pretzels have been “panned” (a traditional candy-making process which applies uniform coating to small pieces) with chocolate to preserve the freshness and crunch within the ice cream. This unique “Stout & Pretzel” flavor was a hit at Oktoberfest Zinzinnati where it was previewed a couple weeks ago.
