MilkMade opened their Brooklyn Tasting Room in the summer of 2015, six years after MilkMade launched as an ice cream of the month delivery service. Though a scoop shop wasn’t in their near-term plans, they serendipitously took over a space on Sackett Street that previously hosted an ice cream store. Neighbors kept knocking on the door looking for ice cream and almost insisted that they continue serving them scoops. So the Tasting Room was born.

The Brooklyn Tasting Room is exactly that – a place for you to taste their ‘scream, meet the Chefs and team, and learn more about our small-batch production process. The menu offers sixteen flavors at all times – a constant lineup of ten Signature ‘Screams, as well as six Signature ‘Screams that rotate monthly and are generally built around a theme.

204 Sackett Street
Brooklyn
NY 11231
