Here is how he responded:
"For a classic French dessert with a Milwaukee twist, try my Sprecher Cream Soda Creme Brulee," says Correa.
"I learned to make creme brulee during an apprenticeship with Tuckaway Country Club and have loved it ever since. I made this specific version of creme brulee for Randy Sprecher himself at a beer dinner at Merrill Hills Country Club and he loved it.
"Although he and his team get the credit for creating a great cream soda, I do claim credit for deciding to put it in this dish! It's a fun and tasty dessert to make that's sure to please the people you serve. My one piece of advice? Cook this as slowly as possible. Don't try to rush it because you risk curdling the batter. Enjoy!"
