Some cool ways to celebrate IPA Day in ATL!


Yep! The buzz is huge about today's celebration of IPA Day so here are some creative ways you Hop Heads can get a buzz in the ATL including Frozen Pints, Taco Mac, SweetWater and Big Tex Decatur! Look for more updates on my Twitter too (@alesharpton)! Enjoy!

Frozen Pints Honey IPA gets scooped today at 15 Taco Macs!
IPA ice cream? Yep!!!
They Say: Hop Heads rejoice! Satisfying the sweet tooth of beer aficionados and ice cream lovers, Frozen Pints craft beer ice cream is prepped to make its grand debut in 15 Taco Mac Sports Grill establishments in Georgia beginning on National IPA Day, Thursday, August 1, 2013.  
Introducing two of Frozen Pints most popular flavors – Malted Milk Chocolate Stout and Honey IPA – patrons will be able to experience and savor the unique frozen treat as a dessert or atop their favorite, go-to beer. Patrons will also be able to receive a Taco Mac Brewniversity credit with purchase of either Frozen Pints flavor.
Frozen Pints Craft Beer Ice Cream is an alcoholic ice cream product that is made and produced locally with all natural ingredients and, of course, craft beer. It's "ice cream for adults"! There are 5 flavors available year-round, including the Honey IPA, and all flavors require an ID to purchase because of their ABV (ranges from 1% - 3.1%)
