Drink of the Week: Biere de Chocolat, a beer by Almanac Beer Co. full of chocolate by Dandelion Chocolate

Do you love fancy beer? Do you love fancy chocolate? Well you’re in luck, because San Francisco’s most artisanal brewery teamed up with San Francisco’s most artisanal chocolate store to bring us Biere de Chocolat, a surprisingly easy-drinking chocolate beer that showed up in stores last month.

The beer starts out slow, light and fizzy with a faint chocolate smell, but once the carbonation dissipates the whole thing just turns into a chocolate bar. And not a Hershey’s bar, a dark, musky, roasty, bitter, not-too-sweet, fancy-ass chocolate bar. Delicious.  You can get it at Bi-Rite, doi.

    Great local beer! There previous offerings were quite expensive and not quite good.

    There new stuff: Barrel Noir and Farmers Reserve are much better, like this one.

    The beer is great if you’re a 14 year old school girl. Otherwise, it’s a completely out of balanced chocolate bomb with waaaaaaaay too much residual sugar.

    Don’t be fooled by the lipstick on this pig, these guys aren’t brewers, they are marketers. Brewers brew their own beer, not email someone else a recipe and have them do all the work.
