National Ice Cream Day at Concrete Beach Brewery
Concrete Beach is celebrating National Ice Cream Day on Sunday, July 19, in the best way possible — with beer and ice cream floats! That's right— some genius figured out that if it works with root beer, you could use the real thing. The result is a cool, delicious treat that beats the summer heat. The special floats are served from 2 to 6 p.m. and cost $7.
Get cool at Jugofresh.
