Welcome to our new website! Thanks to my talented sister @Piktoland Tania Metalli.
Meanwhile we also made a big move from Colorado to Grand Rapids Michigan, lots of changes but one thing is exactly the same; my passion for finding and working with local beers and whiskies!
Well I can say that here I found my match. Grand Rapids was voted beer city and it shows.
The quantity and quality of the local brews here is overwhelming.
After not even a month of moving here I participated at the Fox Brew Ha Ha,.
I have created four chocolates for this event using four local beers.
Grand Rapids Brewing Company Senator Lyon Stout

Shorts Huma Lupa Licious, Dark Horse Tres Blueberry Stout and Founders Breakfast Stout.

We sold out 3 hours before closing!
Right now I am working on creating a staple line with three local beers and a whisky. This is what I have to begin with and I am really excited about it

The nice Beer Barrel Whisky from New Holland Brewing Company will soon be part of our Smoked whisky caramel truffle bars. The Founders Imperial Stout will be infused into the Stout Caramel Truffle bars. The porter calls for a smooth caramel and maybe a ganache, the Dragon's Milk will be a chocolate all by it self and the Fore Smoked Stout I haven't quiet decided yet. Lot to play with as you can see.
Will post some more pictures of the finished products later this week.

Good night
