Tastes great, extra filling? Beer inspires ice cream makers all over the world, it seems, from random beer gardens in Europe to craft-beer establishments in the U.S. It also tends to be seasonal. Rustico Restaurant in Alexandria, VA, has a following for its summer popsicles—make that “brew pops”—often made from Belgian fruit ales.

How It Tastes: Depends on the beer used. Beer ice cream fans seem to love Guinness ice cream, which has a richer flavor that can go nicely with chocolate.
