Ice Cream-Flavored Beers

Wild Leap Brewers Has Launched a Vanilla Ice Cream Stout

— August 29, 2019 — Unique
Just in time to say goodbye to summer, independent brewing company Wild Leap has launched the Vanilla Ice Cream Stout. While stout-style beers are traditionally enjoyed during the colder months, Wild Leap has combined "an all-American summer classic" -- vanilla ice cream, with delicious and robust beer that can be enjoyed all year long.

“This is the biggest stout we have ever released,” says Anthony Rodriguez, CEO and Wild Leap Co-Founder. “It’s a truly sweet, rich and creamy flavor profile, and it is the heaviest bodied beer we have produced.” The Vanilla Ice Cream Stout will help to bring back consumers' fond memories of childhood and the intriguing stout will be released for a limited time in select retailers across America.
Trend Themes
1. Ice Cream-flavored Beers - Combining two classic summer favorites, breweries are experimenting with the sweet, creamy taste of ice cream in their beer offerings, creating a unique flavor experience
2. Limited Edition Beer Releases - Breweries are creating buzz and appealing to consumers' desire for exclusivity by releasing limited edition beer flavors for a short time period, driving sales and interest in their brand
3. Hybrid Beer Flavors - Breweries are pushing boundaries and creating unique flavor combinations by blending traditional beer styles with unexpected ingredients, appealing to a wider range of customers and creating a competitive edge in the market
Industry Implications
1. Craft Beer - Craft breweries can innovate and differentiate themselves in a crowded market by creating unique and unexpected beer flavors like ice cream stouts, driving consumer interest and loyalty
2. Food and Beverage - The emergence of ice cream-flavored beers opens up new flavor and product development opportunities for other food and beverage companies to explore, such as ice cream or dessert-flavored liquors or non-alcoholic beverages
3. Marketing and Advertising - The trend towards limited edition, unique beer flavors presents a marketing opportunity for advertising agencies to create creative campaigns and promotions around these new product offerings and drive interest and sales for breweries
