Ben & Jerry’s Ice Cream Beer
A new craft beer with Ben & Jerry's name on it is causing interest and controversy. The Vermont based ice cream maker announced Thursday it plans to create a Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale flavored beer with a beer from New Belgium Brewing, a Colorado based brewing company. Some people are concerned the drink will send the wrong message to kids. A spokesman for a consumer watchdog group says it is bad for kids and may cause them to see beer as their next step after ice cream. For those over the age of 21, it is scheduled to be on shelves this Fall.
