High Point Creamery opened in 2014 in Denver's Hilltop neighborhood. It was and is a labor of love for Erika Thomas, who wanted to be in a business where she would love going to work each day. That's just what she does as the company's ice-cream makers and co-owner (with husband, Chad Stutz). The bonus for customers is that she happens to make exceptional ice cream, from classic flavors to unusual offerings. Basil with Blackberry Swirl, Coconut & Ginger, Chamomile Flower with Strawberry Glass and Blueberry & Lemon are among the choices. There's also Milk Chocolate, Darkest Chocolate, Salty Dog Chocolate, Mint with Chocolate Bark and Coconut Chocolate. The company uses some local vendors, including Corvus coffee, which is served as a beverage and as a flavor of ice cream. For more sophisticated palates, there's Tin Cup Whiskey & Pistachio Brittle and Earl Grey with Shortbread Cookies. Queen Bee & the Sunshine Seeds is a delectable combo featuring honeyed ice cream, organic Meyer lemon curd and roasted, salted sunflower seeds. One of Thomas and Stutz's best ideas: flights of ice cream, much like flights of wine or beer. In this case, customers can taste three-ounce portions of five different flavors, plus one of the shop's sauces.
