'Mancini's al fresco,' an Italian eatery based in Minnesota, is joining a wide-range of vendors at the Minnesota state fair and offering fair-goers with an odd flavor of gelato: beer.

The Italian restaurant usually sells gelato in-house, but never has it unveiled such an unusual flavor. The fair it is bringing it to is known for providing its customers with one-of-a-kind foods and 'Mancini's al fresco' is simply following suit.

The Beer Gelato is made fresh daily on-site (at the fair) by blending a plain, rich and creamy gelato with a local craft beer. Though the mixture of dairy and booze doesn't sound like the most pleasing combo for your digestive track, it is probable that the fair wouldn't feature it if it didn't taste delicious. Like the old saying goes: "you can't judge a book by its cover."
