The Elysian Stout milkshake has ice cream made with Dragon's Tooth Stout and it is extraordinarily good. Not for you? Then how about a Snickerdoodle or Chocolate Pudding milkshake? For vegans there’s the Mighty-O (vegan) Brownie batter shakes with chocolate donut chunks and coconut milk. All shakes are made on the spot with the ice cream flavors in the shop that day.
