As many of you know, on Saturday, February 11th we held a craft beer and chocolate pairing event at the Taza Chocolate Factory featuring their organic, fair trade chocolate being paired with craft beer from Peak Organic Brewing Company, Sixpoint, Narragansett and Slumbrew [Picture below from left: Devon from Drink Craft Beer; Zac from Narragansett; Rob from Peak Organic; Sarah from Drink Craft Beer]. The event was awesome, we had over 550 people come through the door and raised $1828 for The Greater Boston Food Bank! With that money, they can provide 4,570 meals to people in need! That can feed a family of four for a year and a half!
We'd like to thank everybody who made it out and came to the event! Thanks for donating the money and being so enjoyable to spend four hours with on Saturday [Picture Right: In the Taza Factory Store, the line for the second tasting station]!
And, especially, a huge thanks to Peak Organic, Sixpoint, Narragansett and Slumbrew for donating all the beer and to Taza Chocolate for donating all of the chocolate and letting us take over their shop for the whole day! We really couldn't have done it without each and every one of them!
Also, Boston.com's The Next Great Generation had a writer on hand to cover the event, so check out "Taza Chocolate And Drink Craft Beer Prove That Beer And Chocolate Make A Perfect Pair."
Cheers everyone, we look forward to seeing you all again soon!
