  • Monday, January 21st. Beer and Chocolate Pairing with Potts Chocolate. Pilot Brewing. 5 pm-8 pm. Why do beer and chocolate go so well together? One reason is that they share two fundamental flavors — bitter and sweet. With beer the bitterness comes from hops — this flower is one of beer’s basic ingredients; and the sweetness is derived from natural sugars in the malted cereal, which is another one of the ingredients. But beer is more than just bitter or sweet. Spice, vanilla, caramel, fruit, smoke, coffee, nuts, citrus, and floral are amongst the hundreds of flavors that tasting experts have noted in beer.

    Join Pilot as we team up with Potts Chocolate to guide you through a world of chocolate and beer. Through a pairing of four beers and four chocolates, learn how chocolate is a champion at coating the mouth, and how beer is very efficient at cleansing the palate at the same time as complementing or contrasting flavors.

    Guided by our Certified Cicerone®, Rachael Hudson, and Chocolatier of Potts Chocolate, Blair Potts. Did you know that Blair Potts was one of the original founders of the first craft brewery in Connecticut? There is no better pair to lead you through the craft chocolate and beer world.

    Please visit Pilot Brewing, or call, to purchase your ticket today!

    Two sessions will happen at 5pm and 7pm. Seats are limited to 15 per sessions. Tickets are $20.
