Glacé + Boulevard Ice Cream Review

You probably heard last week that Glacé Artisan Ice Cream (a Christopher Elbow joint) had teamed up with Boulevard to create two of the most interesting ice cream flavors I've ever heard of. First, there's the Bob's 47. It's a beer I'm not crazy about but I could see it's maltiness being pretty good in a frozen dessert. The second flavor uses Sixth Glass, Boulevard's Quadrupel. This is the one I was most looking forward to because of all the dark fruit flavors that art typically found in a quad would be really really good in a scoop of ice cream.

So, without further ado here's my review of the Glacé + Boulevard Ice Cream flavors:

... ... ...

Yup, I haven't had any. It sounds like these ice creams were made in such small quantities that even some of Boulevard's brewers can't get their hands on it. I made three trips to Glacé over the past week and the only thing the girls behind the counter can tell me is, "It's sold out."

At some point I hope to eventually get my hands on at least a spoonful of these ice creams, but I'm doubtful it'll be any time soon.

If you're one of the lucky few who've had one of the Glacé + Boulevard flavors, drop us a line in the comments and let us know how awesome it was and how greedy you were to not share it with anyone.


  1. This is neither here nor there, but we totally have the spoons from the picture you used on this post. The bowls they go with are different than those pictured, ours are shaped like sugar cones.

    I can't wait for the Irish to take some sort of offense to this post.

  2. Have you tried contacting Christopher Elbow? He was cool about taking some time to talk to me

  3. I was able to get some around 7:00 on a Wednesday. The flavor was pretty good, not particularly strong but I enjoyed it.

  4. I know it's not Christopher Elbow, but I had some Tank 7 ice cream at The Westside Local the other day. It was excellent.

  5. Apparently I'm the only one who thinks beer-flavored ice cream sounds awful.

  6. I just had their Bob's 47 with their Salted Pretzel Ice Creams on Saturday. I have to say I was blown away by the innovativeness of the flavors and the creaminess of the ice cream. More of a Gelato than an American style ice cream. Looking forward to trying new creations from them in the future!
