Sure, a root beer float is tasty but what if we just go for the real deal?

Not sure if root beer floats were derived from actual beer floats or if those who would prefer a little alcohol with their dessert came up with the idea.

Either way, it's something I never considered before but now I think I'm all in for a real beer float.

Good thing too, because Urban Forest Craft Brewing, 6551 East Riverside Boulevard Rockford, is whipping up its own version of the tasty beverage.

Urban Forest Craft Brewing on Facebook:

Oatmeal Stout with your choice of Vanilla, Chocolate or Coffee Häagen-Dazs ice cream, topped with whipped cream and chocolate sprinkles.

Sounds amazing! One comment may have summed up our reaction as people. Tom Windelborn on Facebook said, "I had no idea this was possible."

Now that we know it's possible to create a beer float, and a delicious-sounding one at that, will you try it?

Urban Forest Craft Brewing is open Friday from 3 p.m. to 10 p.m., Saturday 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m.
