Beer and Chocolate

Beer loves chocolate, and chocolate loves beer!  These two really do bring out the best in each other.


Beer has many flavors that play well with the tasting notes in chocolate. Hops, malt, and yeast, the main flavor contributors in beer, can express elements of fruit, flowers and herbs, spices, caramel, coffee, and more.


With Utah’s exceptional chocolate makers and the versatility of our craft beers, you can create some amazing pairings! Belgian styles, red ales, and IPAs work just as well as dark beers so don’t limit yourself! Even a light pilsner can enhance the delicate floral notes in some chocolate. Make some sweet, sweet beer and chocolate love!
