Little Man Ice Cream

A twenty-eight foot tall 14,000 lb. cream can sits on the sidewalk of Lower downtown Denver, alluring with its size but quaint modesty.  It evokes images of hot dog stands and donuts, the great American era during the 1920’s-1950’s with roadside monuments looming out of the landscape and beckoning road trippers to have a taste of summer and the American dream.  It’s romantic – the cobblestone, the intimacy of the outdoor seating, and the dates lining up for thirty minutes just to try Space Junkie, Snickers, and strawberry balsamic ice cream.

The founder Paul Tamburello named it after his father nicknamed Little Man, and his idea was not just to make ice cream which was sourced locally and brought the community together, but to create an entire experience just by the simple act of buying ice cream.  Clearly it’s working since anyone can just go to the grocery store and pick up a pint of Dreyer’s.  Instead people from all over Denver line up just for the experience of the twenty-eight foot cream can with happy employees inside, hand scooping and serving you an awesome cup or cone of Colorado craft ice cream.
