Untimely item #1 - this relates to Valentine's Day. Today is April 10th. You do the math. But really, is there any other day of the year that lends itself to pairing chocolate and beer? I'm sure we could come up with one, but Valentine's Day just screams YES to this.
|We won glassware!! Temporarily filled with chocolates wrapped in cheery Valentine's Day wrapping, now residing in our freezer awaiting a frosty brew.|
We worked our way through seven-ish beers of varying strengths and chocolatey-ness, paired with the likes of chocolate-covered strawberries and straight-up milk and dark chocolate. And while I didn't necessarily think that beer and chocolate would really go together at the start of the thing...some of them surprised me. In a good, tasty way. Fun! Please see the aftermath below.
Go to the Ginger Man and some love - a lot of people find it awesome. Especially when you can enjoy an amazing patio in the middle of February. And maybe even the middle of April.
