Beer and Chocolate Pairing

Our next event at the REO Town Pub will be a beer and cocolate tasting affair on February 21st starting at 7pm. For this tasting, we will be zeroing in on some of the decadent and well-crafted beers from Dark Horse Brewing Company hailing from Marshall, MI. Dark Horse would be the first to admit that they are an eclectic and strange group of folks, and that they embrace a quirky, small-town, holistic view of brewing. They have become famous for their Crooked Tree IPA, a complex India Pale Ale that has been winner of many awards and boasts an incredible perfect score from "The Bros" at Beer Advocate.
Along with Crooked Tree, we will be pairing various chocolates with a few members of their holiday stout series--the Too Cream Stout, Tres Blueberry Stout, and Fore Smoked Stout. In addition, we will also be sampling their relatively new Thirsty Trout Porter. The three stouts and the porter will be paired with delicious chocolates from Lansing's own Fabiano's Candies. For the Crooked Tree, we have a special surprise-pairing planned that we almost guarantee you have never tried before.

The Pairings:
  • Too Cream Stout - Milk Chocolate Vanilla Cream
  • Thirstry Trout Porter - Pecan Truffle
  • Tres Blueberry Stout - Dark Raspberry Truffle
  • Crooked Tree IPA - Chocolate Dipped Jalapeno
  • Fore Smoked Stout - Dark Maple Cream 


Tickets for the event are $20 and should be purchased in advance from by Clicking Below or by stopping in REO Town Pub prior to the event. Roxanne and her staff at the REO Town Pub will be offering other drink specials at the conclusion of the event. We hope to see you for what promises to be a sweet and delicious night of beer and chocolate!
