The sun is finally out and Peteybird, an ice-cream sandwich line launching next weekend, may just make you forget all about winter. Peter Bredemann, an engineer turned ice-cream maker, will unveil Peteybird, a crafted ice-cream sandwich operation that boasts unique flavor combinations such as maple and sweet potato pie, but also classic ones like chocolate on peanut butter cookies and strawberry on sugar cookies. With a love for the ice-cream sandwich, many disappointments in the market offerings, and his childhood nickname- Peteybird- Bredemann decided to pursue the perfect ice-cream sandwich on his own. He developped recipes, tested and tasted for three years and now he is ready to go.
On April 27 from 2 to 5 p.m. at Denver Beer Company (1695 Platte St.), Peteybird will sell its ice-cream sandwiches for the first time and the launch will include specially priced $1 ice-cream sandwiches packaged with prizes and paired with beer and other surprises.
There is no brick and mortar location to speak of but Peteybird promises to deliver its ice-cream sandwiches in multiple ways from its pink branded ice-cream bikes, fitted with coolers on the front. The bikes will have the sweet treats available at various locations around town that customers can find via a mapping application on its website,. Peteybird will also partner with local businesses that will carry prepackaged Peteybird ice cream sandwiches - those will be listed on the website as well. Finally, the ice-cream maker will offer order and delivery service for events or just to have in your refrigerator at home with no delivery charge, There is, however, a minimum order of a dozen mini ice-cream sandwiches which cost $21 all together. The larger ice-cream sandwiches cost $5 a piece.
If you can't make the April 27 event, there are other Peteybird events following soon thereafter. The ice-cream sandwiches will be available on April 28 at 2914 Coffee in Jefferson Park, on May 1 at the Dailey Method in Sunnyside, and on May 3 at the First Friday Santa Fe Artwalk.
