Step 1: Choose a Beer
Too bitter and it just won't mix with the creamy sweet ice cream.
Too malty and it's like having water with your cereal.
I am going to leave this open as a collaboration so others can recommend beers, but please, if you're going to recommend something, and it's some beer you can only find in a dingy unlit Cuban bar with no sign and the only entrance is the back alley and it's only open on full moons and you need a password... share a beer others can find along with that first suggestion. Thanks ;)
Step 2: Get your tools ready
Ice cream. I used Vanilla Bean. Get something good.
A titanium milkshake spoon ($10 REI). Or any spoon really. I went all out with the titanium, because it's all I had.
A frosted well chilled pint glass, or half yard if you have one. If there is a beer logo on it, it must be of an at least half decent beer. Yes, college students, this means you can't use the natty ice glass you got for free with the order of 5 kegs. Sorry.
