Sacramento Magazine – Sweet or Savory?

Originally Published: December 16, 2018

Sacramento Magazine recently reviewed a selection of some of the best desserts in Sacramento. Alaro’s head chef Jason Azevedo presented our Stout Float in fine form!

If you love dessert but prefer just a hint of sweetness instead of something cloying after dinner, you’re in luck. Several local restaurants are turning out daringly inventive desserts that spotlight savory ingredients without giving up any of the satisfaction that a post-meal treat should deliver.

At brewpub Alaro, head chef Jason Azevedo concocted a simple dessert that pleases beer lovers and sweet tooths alike. His oatmeal stout float—rich, creamy stout poured over vanilla soft-serve ice cream from Straus Family Creamery—is “like an adult root beer float.” Some customers even order a flight of floats with a lineup of root beer, cola and stout, says Azevedo. “It’s what you order when you want something really refreshing and yummy but you want a little adult treat with it.”
