Science, Craft Beer & Chocolate Desserts

If you have never tried this decadent fellowship of beer and chocolate, you are missing something very special, indeed! For those lucky few that have already experienced this uncommon marriage of food and drink, you will instantly light up and say, "What have I been missing all this time?!"

Beer truly loves chocolate. Historic cousins, perfect partners, and scientific soul mates, beer and chocolate are perhaps, a match made in… a tasting lab? Whether beer is served with a chocolate dessert or the chocolate is brewed right into the beer, the two work incredibly well together. Both share a molecular affinity for a wide variety of foods such as fruit, nuts, salt, and - have you heard - ? Yes, even bacon!

Wednesday, December 10th, 7-9pm

Hosted by: The Denver Museum of Nature and Science and Exec Chef Patrick Hartnett and the DMNS catering department

Presented by: Nicole Garneau, Chair of Health Science Department and Curator of Human Health at The Denver Museum of Nature and Science; Jeff Mendel, Partner, Director and "Beer Ambassador" for Left Hand Brewing Co and CEO of Sapere Aude; and Sarah Amorese, Chocolatier and Chef Owner of Piece, Love & Chocolate

Class includes a flight of 8 beers - all from local Colorado craft breweries - and a pairing of more than 10 different chocolates & chocolate micro-desserts.

$55 per person (must be at least 21 years old)
