This Sweet Bar Near Tampa Mixes Beer And Gelato For The Ultimate Adult Summer Treat

Like a root beer float, minus the root and add gelato!

We're adults now, but that doesn't mean we have to skip out on celebrating the summer and its heat (or let's be real, year-round) with some ice cream - maybe even a rootbeer float, minus the root and add more beer. Coolside Gelato takes that idea up a notch with their 'Beerlatos'.

What the heck is a Beerlato!? Exactly what it sounds like - a  delicious craft beer and gelato marry perfectly to create this deliciously boozy beverage.

Their current menu pairings include flavors like a classic Vanilla with Not Your Father's Rootbeer, Guinness with Sea Salt and Caramel, Peroni with Lemon Granita or the Apple Cider and Vanilla that's like an apple pie with vanilla ice cream.

Of course, if want them to use another flavor, they're always open to your flavor combo suggestions - or if you're not looking to drink but have a serious sweet tooth you could just grab a cup or cone to go of gelato. Coolside's gelato is all home-made, and it might just be the best in town.

You'll be able to ring in the weekend with a boozy sweet treat with your BFF and indulge your sweet tooth all in one go. We're ready for our Beerlato - but Coolside also offers other sweet treats definitely worth checking out; we're adding this place to our bucket lists.
