chocolate and beer tasting

Valentines Day Chocolate and Beer with Rogue Brewery

We go for a different kind of Valentines Day indulgence…chocolate and beer!

Rogue brewery in Portland Oregon has been pairing these two treats together for years now.  We love both chocolate and beer, so we had to join in!

World-renowned beer writer Fred Eckhardt is our host for the event and we find out how he started pairing beer and chocolate.  It’s not the explanation you would expect.  Fred is in his mid 80’s and he’s doin’ it right.  Enjoy….and by the way Happy Valentine’s Day!

Have you been to a beer and chocolate tasting before?

Famous for my "how-not-to" videos, and typically the man behind the camera, sometimes I’m forced to be here in the “spotlight”. When you see my face you’re probably reading something more technical than adventurous, but either way I do my best to tell it like it is and infuse my opinions into the commentary…after all this is a blog and not MSN.

    Oh how fun!! Wish there were more beer combos that you liked though!! lol

  • Cool video, the cat that photobombs right after the rum. Classic.
    Loving y’alls site right now, cool to see fellow Texans on the road, hoping to get there myself one day.

  • My favorite is homemade beer and chocolate kisses.

    • Homemade Beer is an art! We'd love to feature a home brewer one day. If you know someone around our travel destinations please let us know. We're relying on our viewers for help on places to visit, and people to interview.

    I really liked this one! It all looked so delish. I wish that you had gone into more detail about some of the beer and chocolate pairings that you liked. After all, you two ARE beer and chocolate snobs.
