Beer & Chocolate Pairs

It all started at Mt. Tam Watershed:  Sam Adams Coastal Wheat and Dark Chocolate.  “Taste the beer with the chocolate” turned into  “OMG! we need to have a beer & chocolate pairing party!”  After researching beer and chocolate pairings, I discovered that amber ale goes with raspberry dark chocolate  and that any porter/stout goes well with dark chocolate.  After a real-life attempt, I’m less convinced of this.  There are oh-so-many ways to go wrong in the beer aisle!  Please learn from the wisdom of the practiced:

We had a beer & chocolate pairing party and discovered two AMAZING pairs  of pearls among swine. (I know)
