Ben and Jerry's to sell chocolate chip cookie dough beer
Legendary ice cream company Ben and Jerry's has been creating unique flavors for years. Last fall, they began a different, but similarly interesting, venture: Ice cream-flavored beer. The company teamed up with New Belgium Brewing Company last fall to create the first variety, Salted Caramel Brownie Ale.
The ale proved to be a big hit, so the two companies are partnering again to create a beer out of one of Ben and Jerry's all-time popular flavors: Chocolate chip cookie dough.
If you fall in love with the flavor, you will also be doing some good: New Belgium has pledged to donate $50,000 of the ale's sales to Protect Our Winters (POW), a non-profit organization that strives to raise awareness about climate change.
"We are excited to be partnering once again with the good folks at Ben and Jerry's and POW," said New Belgium Director of Sustainability, Jenn Vervier.
Vervier continued, "The beer in development tastes amazing and we look forward to talking about climate change and climate action. With the upcoming election and a new administration, year two is even more important than the first round."
Ben and Jerry's revealed the partnership on Twitter:

You won't have to wait too long to experience Ben and Jerry's and New Belgium's latest experiment. Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ale is slated to release this fall. Like the Salted Caramel Brownie Ale, it will be available for a limited time.
