Ben and Jerry’s and New Belgium announced a new beer-flavored ice cream and an ice cream–flavored beer, Salted Caramel Brownie Brown Ale, according to a press release posted last week on the brewery’s website. The beer is a combination of pale malt, caramel Munich, and chocolate malt in a slightly savory, dessert-style ale. The ice cream combines beer flavors, salted caramel, and brownie chunks, according to Refinery 29.

“We wanted to create a beer to complement ice cream (salted, caramel, vanilla, chocolate),” Grady Hull, assistant brewmaster at New Belgium, said in a press release published earlier in October. “Each raw material chosen has a direct line to an ice cream ingredient. Individually delicious, but a flavor explosion when paired together.”

A portion of the sales will be given to Protect Our Winters, a nonprofit organization aimed at rallying the snow-sports community to take action on climate change.
