Recipe: Peach Lambic & Strawberry Wheat Shortcake
Posted on May 12, 2013 by Frozen Pints
2 ¼ cups flour
4 teaspoons baking powder
3/4 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoon sugar
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup Wheat Beer (Leinenkugel’s Summer Wheat recommended)
1 Pint of Frozen Pints Peach Lambic Ice Cream
2 cups strawberries
½ cup sugar
½ cup wheat beer
Cut the strawberries into bite sized pieces and put into a bowl with sugar and beer. Allow to marinate for at least 30 minutes.
Heat oven 450 degrees.
Mix flour, baking powder, salt and sugar together . Cut in cold butter (this can also be done in a food processor). Add the beer.
Roll out to about ½ inch thickness and cut with biscuit or cookie cutter (shape of your choice but no bigger than 3 inches) Place the cut dough on a cookie sheet and brush with a mixture of melted butter and beer. Sprinkle with a little bit of sugar and bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
Once cooled, cut the shortcakes in half and spoon over strawberries. Top with the Frozen Pints Peach Lambic Ice Cream and a bit of the remaining juice from the strawberries.
The Silver Screen and Beer Ice Cream
Posted on March 15, 2013 by Frozen Pints
Did you know that the Atlanta Film Festival is one of the only Academy Award qualifying festivals of it’s kind? Atlanta, a growing hub of arts and culture, hosts this year’s talent display beginning March 15. For the next 10 days, make sure to catch a screening or two – held across iconic venues around town (like The Plaza Theatre and The Starlight Drive-In).
To kick off our partnership with this great event, some talented film-making friends put together a little treat: “Empty Hearts”
We’re also excited to be serving Frozen Pints at both the Opening and Closing Night parties.
For more information about the festival and a schedule of events for the week, visit the ATLFF website.

Frozen Pints – Intern Opportunity
Our (Divinely Inspired) First Collaboration: Pecan Eschaton
Posted on December 20, 2012 by Frozen Pints
We’re pleased to announce the launch of our first collaboration flavor : “Pecan Eschaton.”
Developed with fellow locals, Wild Heaven Craft Beers, this baby’s one of a kind. The custom flavor features buttered roasted pecans – a savory complement to the vinous notes in this Belgian Style Quadruple Ale, which is aged on Pinot Noir-soaked oak chips. And, made with a beer that weighs in at a whopping 10.5% ABV, this is probably our booziest flavor yet.
Wanna know what makes it extra special? Eschaton derives its name from a term meaning “end of the world.” In honor of the predicted apocalypse, Frozen Pints and Wild Heaven have teamed to offer the limited release flavor and its namesake beer at select restaurants around Atlanta on Friday – 12/21/12.
The pair will be exclusively served at The Porter, Cypress St. Pint & Plate, the family dog, Ormsby’s, H. Harper Station, Thinking Man Tavern, Midway Pub, Augustine’s, and Bottle Rocket. If all goes well, you might see this popping up somewhere in the future…
“If it’s the end of the world, and for the record, we don’t think it is, we figured ‘why not enjoy two of the best things this world has to offer: beer and ice cream?’ And since that’s not a common pairing, let’s make them really sing by blending a new beer ice cream,” says Wild Heaven founder Nick Purdy.
We’ve been waiting for the right opportunity to partner with a local brewery, so when Nick approached us with the idea, we thought it couldn’t be more perfect –literally a match made in heaven.

In case you haven’t heard, last week was a big one for us – finally, our launch! We’ve been working on this for two years now, so we’re beyond excited to finally bring it out into the light. There’s nothing quite like being able to transform your passion for craft beer into something completely unique, and then sharing it with all of ATL.
I had a great ride-along with our distributor, and we hand delivered every pint. It’s no small task delivering ice cream in 100°+ heat, but I’m happy to report that everyone (pints included) made it safe and sound.
We also had a great launch event with Hop City on Thursday. They were more than welcoming, and we’re thrilled to be in such a perfect spot! Great chance to meet some fellow beer geeks and talk brews. Opinions were divided as to a favorite flavor – more reason to try them all, I guess…
The next few weeks should be pretty exciting. We’re setting up a whole bunch of great events and tastings, getting in touch with other local beer fanatics, and doing everything we can to get the word out. Be sure to come see us at Red, White and Brew on the 4th! Thanks for your support!
