Belgium.

The centre of both the world of chocolate and the world of beer.
Coincidence? We think not.

At first glance, the complimentary tastes between the two might seem obvious. Think of dark beers like porter and stout, which often contain notes of chocolate, even though no cocoa is used in their production. But a closer look reveals that the complimentary qualities of beer and chocolate quickly move beyond the obvious. From sweet to bitter, from light to heavy, from white to dark. The adjectives themselves can describe both beer and chocolate, and can also describe the ways in which those flavours contrast and compliment one another.

The goal when creating a tasting evening of beer and chocolates that the mutual flavor intensity should always be ending in equilibrium. Putting a solid dark chocolate, 70% for example, together with a special light beer would erase the taste of the beer almost entirely. Conversely, if you have a sweet white chocolate in front of a complex beer, there is not so much left to enjoy in the chocolate. There should always be a good balance, so that the flavours of both the beer and the chocolate are in beautiful harmony.

Years of experience in the art of both beer and chocolate production enable the creation of unique tasting events, the memories of which last long after the flavours have faded.
