The Hop Tater Ridge Ice Cream
The Brewery: The Hop Cafe is actually an ice cream shop outside of Asheville — and the only one in the U.S. officially allowed to use the Sierra Nevada name.
The Ice Cream: Tater Ridge Ice Cream
Tasting Notes: This ice cream shop boils down beers into a non-alcoholic syrup and adds the resulting extract to the ice cream. The hoppyness is lost in the process and what's left is a remarkably sweet, complex, and delicious scoop.
