A Brooklyn restaurateur is serving up a drink made of beer and ice cream — and that’s a serious scoop!

Sweet-toothed booze hounds can cool off with a malty and creamy beer milkshake at 67 Burger, where brew lovers have simply added a blender to the whole “beer float” idea.

“We take a regular milkshake and substitute milk for beer,” said owner Jeffrey Maslanka. “The hops and the cream play off each other and mingle really nicely.”

Maslanka said he and a team of taste-testing comrades tried several beer and ice cream concoctions — including Black Duck Porter with chocolate syrup and Blue Moon with oranges — then decided that Sam Adams with vanilla ice cream is the smoothest, most balanced combo of malt and hops.

Customers can choose any beer on tap and add chocolate syrup, if preferred, for $5.

“Anything that’s creamy is good — if you stop and think about it,” Maslanka said.
