Every year around this time two great companies in Kansas City come together to create something special. Something known as chocolate ale. They don't make a ton of it and once it hits the market it flies off the shelves.
Which is why Chris bought several bottles this week. I decided tonight, after getting home from work, that Friday, February 6th was the perfect day to open up the first bottle.
I know, I know, I should have had a frosty mug but I didn't want to wait for that.
I was thirsty. The odd combination of chocolate in beer is just as good as I remember it being last year. I do believe the brewmaster and the chocolatier achieved their goal of "harmonizing the interplay of chocolate and malt" (dang I wish I would have come up with that line).
If there is a better way to start the weekend that sipping on some chocolate ale I don't know what it is. Oh, and we're having pizza for supper while we watch this past week's episode of Master Chef Junior. As my dad used to say "it's a hot time in the old town tonight".
