Believe it or not, beer desserts are a thing and have been for a while. This much-loved drink is not just used to make your fried chicken crispier than ever but can also bring you an icy bowl of sorbet. Trust us on this, it will taste wonderful, unlike anything you have ever tasted before. Stouts and Guinness beers have been in the dessert arena for quite some time, but Wild Ale was always overlooked. Given its natural fruity flavours, this oversight is certainly a surprise. Well, its true potential has now been discovered, and we are here to introduce it to you.
Cheers To Wild Ale Sorbet!
What is wild ale, you ask? While most beer is fermented by tried and tested, lab-grown yeast strains, wild ale is fermented by yeast that naturally exists in the environment or otherwise known as ‘wild yeast’. So, wild ale lovers, all your dreams are coming true, and you need to be ready for a summer-long sugar rush.
It is high time you get introduced to Wild Ale Sorbet, an icy treat you will never be able to have enough of. Unlike basic ice cream recipes, this one wouldn’t require trying and failing in the kitchen for hours. It might take a while to get a bowl to savour, but you will certainly not get it wrong. So, are you ready for your summer treat?

Now that you are ready to indulge in a boozy dessert at home, start by gathering all the required ingredients:
- An ice cream maker
- 2 cups of wild ale
- A cup of water
- Some granulated sugar
- Chopped fruit of your choice for flavour and garnish
Now that you have all that you need to make it, follow these steps:
- Take two cups of beer in a bowl and whisk it a little to lower the carbonation. Once done, put it in the refrigerator to chill.
- Take a saucepan with 3/4th cup of sugar in it. Pour in a cup of water and put it on the stove.
- Stir the sugar until it dissolves into the water and turns into a syrup. Put this syrup in the refrigerator for two hours.
- Take another large container and freeze it for a while.
- Mix together the chilled syrup and wild ale and churn it in the ice cream maker as per the instructions.
- Once it is done, shift the processed mixture into the frozen container and freeze it again for a minimum of 3 hours.
Pro tip: If you wish to make it a little fruity, top it up with some chopped-up chunks of your favourite fruit.
