The Times yesterday profiled* Dan Suarez, a 23-year-old former Murray’s Cheese employee who grows hops in his parents’ backyard in Park Slope (there’s video) and brews beer in their basement. He’s in the running to be the “assistant to the chief beer officer” at the Four Points hotel chain (ah, the elusive beer internship!), and we wish him luck with that, but we hope it doesn’t distract the kid from his business: He sells homemade ice cream from a truck near Wall Street, and — this is what we’re excited about — beer ice cream may make its way onto the menu. Better than green-tea fro-yo? We’re thinking mmmyeah.
