Quality ingredients aren't cheap. Sweet Science Ice Cream, whose pints run close to $10 at the grocery store, knows that first impressions count. That's why they throw a free tasting in partnership with other local businesses each month. With flavors like honey chamomile ale, peach cobbler, white Russian, and pear Riesling sorbet, Sweet Science offers treats that both children and adults can enjoy, as the natural ingredients emphasize the creaminess of the ice cream instead of dumbing it down with things like stale chunks of candy. Since they're known to base recipes on beer flavors from time to time, Sweet Science found that Twin Cities breweries are a natural partner for their tasting events. This Thursday, they're at Bauhaus Brew Labs. Choose from 15 or so flavors to try, including this month's special creation, strawberry chocolate swirl, and see how well they pair with a pint of Hairbanger or Stargrazer.
