Bissinger’s Chocolates & Schlafly BeerPairing Menu
Cheese Platter and Schlafly Citrus Wit (reception):
Schlafly Citrus Wit is a traditional Belgian-style white beer flavored with orange, lemon and grapefruit peel and coriander to refresh a parched palette.
Bissinger’s Chocolate-Dipped Orange and Schlafly Grand Cru:
Schlafly Grand Cru is a rich, golden color with fruity and spicy alcohol flavors, supported by a soft malt character. The bottle-conditioning creates the effervescence and a massive, long-lasting head which results in “Belgian lace” as the head fades. The beer consists of malted and un-malted wheat with malted barley; the addition of European noble hops and three Belgian yeast strains create subtle pear, orange and apple flavors.
Bissinger’s Chocolate-Dipped Orange begins with a Valencia orange cut into slices and masterfully glaceed, one layer at a time. The finishing touch is an ample layer of our 55% premium dark chocolate.
Bissinger’s Sugar Plum and Schlafly Christmas Ale:
Schlafly Christmas Ale is a big-bodied, higher alcohol beer, flavored with cardamom, juniper berry and ginger. Large amounts of 2-row and caramel malted barley and a unique sugar blend create the sweetness of this ale, while dry-hopped Chinook adds a citrus flavor.
Bissinger’s Sugar Plum consists of a mix of glaceed apricots, dried plums, dates and roasted almonds are blended with spices and a touch of honey to create this unique confection.
Bissinger’s Cashew Toffee and Schlafly Rye Bock:
Schlafly Rye Bock is brewed from the finest quality raw materials including 2-row malted barley, rye and German noble hops. This delicious beer is as malty a German-style lager as you can find.
Bissinger’s Cashew Toffee consists of chunks of cashew and a touch of toffee, covered in milk chocolate which gives a gentle crunch with distinct dimension.
Bissinger’s Rainforest Alliance 75% Chocolate and Schlafly Barleywine:
Schlafly Oak Aged Barleywine has a deep copper color with intense malt flavors and assertive hops for balance. Fermentation with American ale yeast allows the caramel-flavored malt to shine. After fermentation, the beer is infused with American-made Oak chips, where it is aged for several more months to develop its smooth, luscious character. The higher alcohol level in the beer allows the flavors to develop and mellow over time. Aging also creates raisin and port-wine characteristics in the finished beer.
Bissinger’s Rainforest Alliance 75% Dark Chocolate is made with premium, all-natural chocolate, crafted from African cocoa beans for incredible taste. Contains 75% cocoa mass.
Bissinger’s Chocolate-Covered Cherries and Schlafly Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout:
Schlafly Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout is complex and strong, with rich chocolate and roasty flavors. The beer is brewed to have big malt flavor and hop bitterness to balance the sweetness of the high alcohol content. After primary fermentation and conditioning, the beer is transferred to freshly-emptied bourbon barrels and aged for several months before being carbonated and bottled.
Bissinger’s Chocolate-Covered Cherries are crafted with premium, hand-selected dried cherries, and a pan-applied coating of smooth, silky chocolate.
