Chocolate & Beer Pairing: Switchback’s Roasted Red and Honey Caramel
It’s no secret that Switchback Brewery is a local legend here in Vermont. Their classic Unfiltered Ale is on tap in every bar in town and chances are if you try it once, you’ll be hooked.
You may remember from last year’s Chocolate and Beer Pairings at Brew Fest, we paired Switchback’s Porter with our classic 54% Dark Chocolate. This year, same brewery, different beer, different chocolate and amazing results.
Switchback’s Roasted Red & Honey Caramel
Our Chocolates of Vermont Honey Caramel is made from sweet, locally-harvested honey which is infused into our caramel and then drenched in a semisweet dark chocolate. The honey gives the caramel a complex blend of flavors beyond your typical caramel.
Switchback’s Roasted Red has strong, caramelized malt notes which match up beautifully with the Honey Caramel. The floral notes in the honey really enhanced and brightened up the rich, hoppy flavor of the Roasted Red. This is one match you have to try!
