We love chocolate here at Hand Brew Co, it's a flavour we often look for when making dark beers. Naturally, we thought pairing our beers with chocolate would be an interesting experience to offer.
Chef and owner Audrey Dufay at Terre De Sienne has made bean to bar chocolate in Worthing since 2019. They take dried cocoa beans, sort them, roast them and turn them into chocolate themselves. This method ensures the character of the beans are front and centre, and allows them to make chocolate with respect to the environment and chocolate professionals.
There are four chocolate bars choose from, featuring two different beans and a variety of cocoa percentages. We've hand selected four beers spread across a range of alcohol strengths and flavour profiles. There's plenty of exciting flavour combinations to be made, and we really enjoyed exploring the different pairings.
