Beer and chocolate… two of the most loved culinary indulgences for centuries. Why do we love them so? Do they go together? You bet! Rich, full flavored beers can balance the sweetness of many desserts and rich, roasty stouts, in particular, make wonderful companions to the roasted notes in chocolate.
If you have never tried this decadent fellowship of beer and chocolate, you are missing something very special, indeed! For those lucky few that have already experienced this uncommon marriage of food and drink, you will instantly light up and say, “What have I been missing all this time?!”
Beer loves chocolate and its love is reciprocated! Historic cousins, beer and chocolate truly belong together. With a full range of complementary aromas and flavors, “the elegant social elixir known as beer” marries exceptionally well with chocolate! Many feel that the combination of malt and carbonation in beer and the creaminess of chocolate create a lovely textural experience within the mouth; expanding the flavor of chocolate on the palate.
Whether beer is served with a chocolate dessert or the chocolate is brewed right into the beer, the two work incredibly well together. Both share an affinity for a wide variety of foods such as fruit, nuts, salt, and – have you heard – ? Yes, even bacon!
With a focus on the beloved and small batch artisan craft production of both chocolate and beer, this is an elegant culinary exploration of the physiology of taste itself and the taste pairing of beer and chocolate together. It will excite and educate your palate unlike any other food pairing, and likely turn everything you thought you knew about taste and flavor upside down.
So, next time you reach for a frosty glass of milk to go with that chocolate cake, why not make it a glass of milk… stout?
Boulder Beer, Jeff Mendel and Piece, Love & Chocolate have created this class like no other just for you chocolate and beer lovers! Using two of your most favorite indulgences, we plan to enrapture your senses as we take you on this most unique of culinary journeys – a fun and pleasurable exploration touching on the history of beer and chocolate as we focus on the physiology of taste and acknowledge the passionate artisans throughout time that have endeavored to share it with us.
We are very proud to offer this wildly entertaining and educational class on site in the tap room of Boulder Beer. This interactive class is sure to impart a deeper knowledge and appreciation of the physiology of taste and flavor using fine chocolates and Colorado craft beers. All you need is a little curiosity, love of fine food and drink… and to register quickly! We have only 45 seats available and they are sure to sell out quickly.
