Stout + Truffle = Milkshake

If you haven’t figured it out yet, we Vermonters love our beer.  (Ok, and our cheese, maple syrup, chocolate and apples, too).  We’re just a group of proud foodies and we love sharing our products with others.  While I’m bragging, let’s talk about Otter Creek Brewery.

Wolaver’s Organic Beer is not only brewed by Otter Creek right in our backyard, it’s one of the few organic microbreweries in the area.  They’re highly acclaimed in the world of organics, and most importantly, all of their beers are completely yummy.

It only made sense that we go for an all-organic pairing of both beer and chocolate.  We selected the Organic Oatmeal Stout and our Organic Ethiopian Coffee Truffle, and it turned out to be a favorite of the four pairings at Brewfest.

This dark and opaque beer is typically a dessert beer, with rich, sweet flavor undertones like coffee and chocolate.  A sip of the stout and a nibble of the truffle created a marriage that was described by one person as “like a chocolate mocha milkshake”.  Mmm…

Well, that about sums up our Chocolate and Beer Pairings for this year.  Don’t worry, we’re already brainstorming delicious combinations for next year’s Brew Fest and can’t wait to share them with you.
