Fifth Annual Chocofest is taking over Pike Brewing on February 10th for Foreplay before the Big Day. For the first time Chocofest will take over the brew pub to provide a bigger and better Chocofest, highlighting 69 different providers of beer, wine, food and spirits to delight all your senses. Explore the museum room, the brewery cellar and every other room in the brewpub for delicious beverage and food. What will be YOUR favorite chocolate pairing? It is no surprise that the Finkles are partial to chocolate and beer!
Originally Chocofest was a means for Charles and Rose Ann Finkle to share their love of chocolate and beer and educate the general public to this dream pairing. Being open minded sort of people, the Finkles understood that not every winemaker or distiller may agree so they invited wine makers, cideries, mead makers and distillers to share their concoctions with Seattle chocolate lovers.
In recent years Chocofest has celebrated other wonderful beer pairings like with cheese and oysters. Chocofest is a sensory celebration from sweet to savory. Explore the many facets of chocolate pairing and of beer pairing. Chocofest is more than just pairing, vendors will also be incorporating chocolate and beer into their products. Explore beer infused chocolates and chocolate beers.
Chocofest is a Valentine gift for everyone involved, including Puget Sound Keepers Alliance for helping to keep local waters pristine for another love potion featured at Pike Chocofest, oysters on the half shell.
