Get Decadent With Gelati Celesti & Strangeway’s Chocolate Decadence Ice Cream Stout Saturday


Credit: Strangeways Brewing

I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream….beer. Yes, you read that right. Strangeways has collaborated with Gelati Celesti to recreate their best selling ice cream flavor of all time, Chocolate Decadence, in beer form.

More from the Facebook event:

Strangeways Brewing and Gelati Celesti Ice Cream, it’s a “Heavenly Handmade” collaboration.

Gelati Celesti Chocolate Decadence Ice Cream Stout, ABV 8.4% | IBU 16

This sinfully delicious stout was inspired by Gelati Celesti’s Chocolate Decadence, their very best seller since opening in 1984. Gelati Celesti’s customers tell them that just a single spoonful of their Chocolate Decadence ice cream is indescribably good. Rich, fudge-like, and decadent, it’s a chocoholic’s dream come true.

Pure, fresh, and natural, each batch of Gelati Celesti is made by hand with only the finest ingredients from around the world — just like Strangeways’ beers. Hence, a heavenly handmade collaboration with our friends at Gelati Celesti ensued. The result is Strangeways’ interpretation of Chocolate Decadence ice cream in a glass, a stout using some of the same ingredients that make the ice cream delectably delicious. With that, we invite you to treat yourself to a little sip of heaven!”

This beer will be available on draft and in 750ml bottles. Bottles are limited so get there early.


Gelati Celesti’s Ice Cream Truck will be at Strangeways throughout the weekend, Sat. 12-4pm and Sun. 2-8pm and we will be serving up some beer floats made with their yummy ice cream.

Rock Scott’s Addition For Ardent Craft Ales Third Anniversary Saturday

It is hard to imagine that it has already been three years since Ardent Craft Ales opened their doors in Scott’s Addition.  I mean it feels like it was just yesterday when I was having my first tastes of Honey Ginger and Sweet Potato & Sage Saison in the Church Hill brew garage. In some ways, it feels like Ardent has always been right there. It’s as if it was preordained that they would occupy that very spot in Scott’s Addition.

Ardent will celebrate their third anniversary with a huge block party this Saturday June 17th starting at noon featuring over 20 guest beers plus bottles and draft of a special Third Anniversary Tripel.

Guest Beers
