If you stop by Doc's Artisan Ice Cream in Tempe, you won't find a charming ice cream parlor with a brightly painted walls and beautifully displayed desserts. You'll probably find Brown working away in what amounts to an ice cream laboratory, chock-full of shining metal machines and other tools of the trade.

But don't let that fool you.

"We don't look all fancy inside," Brown admits. "But we make up for it in what we offer."
