Take a look Expensive-A** Chocolates Paired w/ Sixpoint Brews
$30 for 4 crazy high-end Emanuel Andrén chocolates paired w/ Sixpoint beers at John Allan’s
LIMITED AVAILABILITY

Chocolate and beer can be powerful aphrodisiacs, though if you ingest too much of either, ain’t no one getting sexual with your chocolate. Down just the right amount of this sexy coupling at a special John Allan’s-hosted tasting: for just $30, take down premium sweets paired with Six Point brews by the best pastry chef in all of Sweden on April 30th. We’re talking about chocolatier Emanuel Andrén, whose eponymous confectionery churns out super-gourmet chocolates that retail for — seriously — $25 each. The tasting Andrén’ll lead includes the following duclet delicacies:

Appleton Estate XV: dark rum-infused dark chocolate
Zino Platinum Cigar: smoky tobacco notes laced with Tabasco & salt
Bleu d’ Auvergne AOC: Sharp blue cheese, raspberries, and white & darks
Black Currant & Aronia: a jelly-centered dark chocolate truffle

Each chocolate is paired to a different Sixpoint varietal, from Bengali Tiger, to Righteous Rye, to Resin. All this is going down in John Allan’s comfy clubhouse, where just for showing up you’ll get a gift certificate for future services, plus a manicure, shoe shine, and a hair trim post-tasting, all of which improve your chances of locking down some sexual chocolate, ladies and gentlemen.
