Sprecher Brewery: New for the 2012 Wisconsin State Fair — Sprecher beer and gourmet soda sorbets

Glendale – This year at the Wisconsin State Fair, Sprecher Brewery will introduce seven (7) sorbet flavors featuring Sprecher beers and Sprecher gourmet soda flavors. Madison’s Chocolate Shoppe Ice Cream company custom made three gourmet soda sorbets featuring the flavors of Sprecher Root Beer, Sprecher Orange Dream and Sprecher Grape. Each sorbet is a luscious scoop of frozen delight ($2 per scoop). Needless to say, if you like the sodas in a bottle odds are you’ll really enjoy them as sorbets. These sorbets are only available at State Fair. They can be found at Root Beer Everything near Apollo’s, and at Sprecher Landing near SpinCity.

Sprecher turned to Milwaukee’s own La Coppa for a little prestidigitation capable of turning award-winning beer into gourmet sorbets. And magic they did. La Coppa actually created a Special Amber sorbet, which will be served by the scoop ($3 per scoop). But wait! There’s more! La Coppa also created three beer lollipops: Sprecher Hefe Weiss sorbet with lemon coating; Chameleon Witty (a Belgian white wheat ale with spices) sorbet with orange coating; and Sprecher Black Bavarian sorbet with dark chocolate coating. The three sorbet lollipops are sold together ($6 for a bag of three) and, like a lollipop, are eaten on a stick. Please note: Because there is a little bit of alcohol in the beer sorbets patrons must be at least 21 years old to purchase. Sprecher beer sorbets are only available for purchase at Sprecher Landing near SpinCity.
