There aren’t many things better than chocolate and beer. Unless, of course, it’s chocolatey confections prepared by Banger's Executive Chef Ted Prater and beer from Saint Arnold Brewing founder Brock Wagner’s personal collection.
All six of the Saint Arnold Bishop’s Barrel series of beers (each a single release) will be sampled in 4 oz pours and paired with a corresponding chocolate dessert at Banger’s on Wednesday night. As each beer in this series is a single release, the majority of the beers served will no longer be available to the general public. A sample pairing includes a Bourbon Barrel Wee Heavy Scotch Ale with a Spicy Toffee Pudding. Both Wagner and Prater will be available to discuss the curated beer and chocolate pairings.
Wed., Feb. 26, 7-11pm. Banger’s Sausage House & Beer Garden, 79 & 81 Rainey St., 512/386-1656. $50. www.st-arnoldchocolatepairing.eventbrite.com.
