 4 – Chocolate Beer

My loyalty lies with beer when it comes to alcoholic beverages. Beer tasting at large or small local bars and breweries is an adventure that always turns out to be a wonderful experience . Chocolate beers are hard to come by actually… You’ll see them more in the darker beers and during the winter season. So the next time you’re out and see a chocolate brew on the menu don’t pass it up! You will not be disappointed.
