Kings Island and Sonder Brewing team up for Blue Ice Cream Ale

Kings Island’s famous blue ice cream treat has inspired Sonder Brewing’s newest beer.

Blue Ice Cream Ale, uniquely crafted to parallel the in-park treat, uses the same flavors of blueberry and vanilla and takes you back to those sunny summer days at Kings Island – like nostalgia in a glass. But the beer wasn’t easy to brew.

“The color was an exciting challenge as we knew we didn’t want to add any artificial ingredients or coloring to achieve a blue hue,” Sonder Brewing chief operations officer Chase Legler said. “We did a lot of research and testing to find a natural product to get the color. Both balancing the ice cream flavor without being overly sweet and achieving the fun blue color were definitely the main challenges.”

The use of honey malt was used to sweeten the beer.

This is the second collaboration between Kings Island and the Mason, Ohio brewery. Last year, the park and Sonder Brewing worked together on a Giga Coaster Lager to celebrate the debut of the award-winning Orion roller coaster.

The Blue Ice Cream Ale will be available at eight locations throughout Kings Island beginning May 15. Starting May 17, the Sonder Brewing taproom located at 8584 Duke Blvd in Mason will have it on tap and in canned four-packs for $12.99, limited to one 4-pack per person.

Guests must be at least 21 years of age to purchase, possess or consume alcoholic beverages at Kings Island.
