A Scoop of Summer Stout

As temperature’s soar, The Fleece introduces Yorkshire Stout gelato sorbet .The much anticipated sizzling weather of late has inspired chef Simon Miller to join forces with local ice cream producer Vanilli’s of Harrogate to create a refreshing sorbet made with WharfeBank Brewery’s Yorkshire Stout craft ale. The distinct and unique flavour was carefully created to deliver a savoury and sharp sorbet to guarantee plenty of fun in the sun. Summer is in full swing at The Fleece with visitors enjoying a scoop of beer flavoured gelato sorbet.

Simon comments:-
“Seasonal ingredients are at the core of our menu at The Fleece and with the recent glorious weather, we were inspired to take our mantra one step further. I’m looking forward to serving up a scoop of WharfeBank stout on our sunny terrace overlooking the River Wharfe.”

Alex Leishman of Vanilli’s said:-
“We were thrilled when The Fleece approached us to create a beer flavoured ice cream. We hope to produce more interesting and experimental flavours with the team in the near future.”

WharfeBank Brewery’s Yorkshire Stout gelato sorbet will be served at The Fleece from 15th June for a limited time only. Enjoy a beer float with your favourite pint of WharfeBank ale, on the side of your favourite dessert or in a waffle cone for a taste of The Fleece with a twist this summer.
