The Portland Hotel is offering an interesting experience at 7pm on Thursday 9th October - a dark beer and chocolate pairing experience.



There will be some amazing dark beers to sample including the latest release from the Portland Hotel's own brewery, the ( James Squire Brewhouse ) which is the only working microbrewery in the Melbourne CBD.

The new ale, the Craic'kle chocolate oatmeal stout, sounds like the ideal partner for a chocolate matching experience. It's described by its brewer Zac Fearnside as 'very chocolate driven, with an extremely silky mouth feel because of the high percentage of rolled oats in the grain bill'.



Master chocolatier Arno Backes from Ganache Chocolate will also be lending his expertise to this event. Arno has a strong background in preparing all things sweet, having started as a pastry chef at age 15. He subsequently refined his chocolate making skills in London where, whilst working for Marasu's Petits Fours , he prepared handcrafted chocolates for famous establishments, including Harrods and The Ritz.



Arno will talk participants through his chocolate creations while they sip and match dark ales.

Tickets are on sale for $25. To book, contact the Portland Hotel on (03) 9810 0064.

This is going to be a CRAIC'ing event!
