Due to some (easy) convincing/pressuring from Meg at Runner’s Kitchen, I gave in and got myself a ticket to go to the Vosges Haut Chocolat/Brooklyn Brewery tasting at the Vosges boutique in SoHo.
The night started with a couple hors d’oeuvres:
prosciutto, arugula, fig & butter on a baguette
dark chocolate w/ chorizo on a baguette
Brooklyn Brewery Brewmaster Garrett Oliver was in attendance and spoke about the brewery as well as the featured beers in the tasting.
rosey caramel w/ brooklyn local 1
Brooklyn Local 1 – Belgian Strong Pale Ale
Rosey Caramel – dark chocolate caramel w/ rose water, pink peppercorns, and red rose petal
tarte caramel w/ brooklyn local 2
Brooklyn Local 2 – Belgian Strong Dark Ale
Tarte Caramel – dark chocolate caramel w/ blood orange, hibiscus, and campari
red fire tortilla chip w/ brooklyn ipa
Brooklyn IPA – East India Pale Ale
Red Fire Tortilla Chip – organic corn tortilla chip in milk chocolate w/ ancho chilis
blues truffle w/ brooklyn black ops
Brooklyn Black Ops – Russian Imperial Stout
Blues Truffle – milk chocolate with applewood smoked bacon
My favorite was the Local 2 & tarte caramel pairing, followed by the Black Ops and Blues truffle.
Huge thanks to Maggie Marion of Vosges and Garrett Oliver of Brooklyn Brewery. The event was a lot of fun and I’ll definitely be checking the website for new events.
