Beer & Chocolate Matches
I had a few beers to choose from and a very short time in which to knock this together after the organisers mentioned that there were some demo theatre gaps, so I just did three and they, overall, got a good to great reception.
In first place came Left Hand Ginger JuJu matched with Belgian milk chocolate truffles.
In second was He'Brew Origin Pomegranate Beer with dark chocolate-covered cranberries (my personal favourite).
And in third, but not in a bad way, was BrewDog Punk IPA with white chocolate.
All in all it was a fun demo to do, it got a lot of people thinking about chocolate in a totally different way and I'm looking forward to doing some more - if anyone would like to see a specific beer & chocolate matching event drop me a comment and I'll see what I can rustle up!
BTW - it wasn't just chocolate, it was M&S chocolate (all right, give me a break, it was the only place open within walking distance!!!)
