Pumpkin Beer Ice Cream Float Is The Boozy Dessert Of Champions

Move over, root beer float. You are a peasant's drink when compared to the delight that is the pumpkin ale float.

Sure, this season in particular brought way too much experimental pumpkin products: From pumpkin spice Oreos to pumpkin spice gum, it's safe to say manufacturers went a bit totally overboard.

But something like a pumpkin ale ice cream float is not ostentatious -- it is a treat the people both want and need. The stouty, deep taste of pumpkin ale pairs just right with the sweet, neutral and always reliable flavor of vanilla ice cream.
