February brings a multitude of red wine and chocolate events, just in time for Valentine’s Day! Check out our wine events page for red wine and chocolate events all over the state. But what if you are more of a hop head? Are you looking for something a little bit different for your valentine? Or maybe you are wanting to play a bit with how the bitterness of hops and sweet malts interacts with fine chocolates? Who wouldn’t want to try some Gelatiamo Pike XXXXX Stout Gelato floats?

Big Time Brewery Chocolate and Beer Night
Last year’s Big Time Brewery’s Chocolate and Beer night was fantastic. We loved the special one-off kegs paired with Theo’s chocolates.
