Skeptics, you may doubt that beer + ice cream = perfection in a glass, but around town there are plenty of bars and restaurants that make this concoction, and make it damn well. I was a doubter myself at first (you can't help but close your eyes and picture a generic, yellow-gold, frothing beer in what would be an ill-fated match with a scoop of supermarket brand HFCS-loaded ice cream, I know) but then realized the right beer plus the right ice cream is a delight.

So who makes the best Beer Float? To address this urgent dessert-meets-refreshment issue, Food GPS is presenting the L.A. Beer Float Showdown II on October 10th at the Verdugo Bar, in which four teams meet up for a good old-fashioned beer float smackdown.
