CraftHaus Brewery in Henderson, Nevada hosted an absolutely awesome chocolate and craft beer pairing with Henderson-based chocolatier Ethel M Chocolates. To begin the chocolate and craft beer pairing event, the owner of CraftHaus Brewery, Wyndee Forrest, gave us a tour of their brewery and explained how they keep such high, consistent quality. After the tour, we returned to our seats to find this:
Let me tell you, it is so awesome sitting down to a placement of chocolate and beer!!!(!!!) Our Chocolatier from Ethel M, Andy, taught us all about the history of their company and how to be an amateur Chocolatier ourselves. We tore into the chocolate and craft beer pairing and I have to say I had never paired the two together. Wine and chocolate, yes… but never chocolate and beer. I have to say I was very pleasantly surprised at how complimentary the flavors were together.
Overall, the event was very well organized and I’ve already visited Ethel M Chocolates to get more of their chocolate. I definitely recommend checking out events at our local craft breweries, there are always fun and creative things going on. As always, I also encourage supporting local business and our local craft beer scene! Cheers!
