Beer & Chocolate 101
Stouts & Porters
Indulge in the delightful combination of dark, roasted stouts and porters with equally rich dark chocolate. The roasted grains in these beers create flavours similar to cocoa and coffee, making them a perfect match for dark, single-origin chocolate. For a contrasting experience, try pairing them with chocolate infused with orange or mint.
Old Ales & Barley Wines
These traditional English beers boast a robust malt profile and moderate to high alcohol content, accompanied by delicious flavours of dried and stewed fruits. Pair them with chocolate-covered fruits like dark chocolate-coated dates, or experiment with combinations of mixed nuts and chocolate buttons.
Enhance the romance with a beautiful raspberry or cherry beer, served in an elegant champagne flute. The dominant fruit flavours in these beers, especially those made with real fruit purees or whole fruits, offer a unique pairing experience. For dry-finishing beers, opt for white chocolate with freeze-dried berries, while sweet-finishing ones complement sharp flavours like a lemon cheesecake truffle.
