New Chocolate!

Our new chocolate order is in just in time for Halloween. New selections from Vosges, Pacari, Dolfin, Chocolove, Hachez, Nirvana, Pralus and more. Some of the more interesting ones include such exotic ingredients as Reishi mushrooms, bacon, mango-chili, Golden Berries (or Ground-Cherries to us in the Pac. NW) and green tea!

We also received a fresh order of Leonidas 1/2lb. and 1lb. assortments! If you're unfamiliar with Leonidas, be assured that these are some of the finest and most authentic Belgian chocolates to be found. Made with 100% pure cocoa butter, each package contains a variety of different Ganaches, Pralinés, and Truffles made with white, milk and dark chocolates.

St. Feuillien Tasting 10/13

This Tuesday we will have a very special guest in town. Dominique Friart, fourth-generation owner of the Belgian brewery St. Feuillien, will be here to pour and discuss her family's ales. We will be pouring bottles of the Triple & Brune and sampling a 2004 batch of the Cuvée de Noël. We will also have their witbier, La Blanche, on draft all for only $1. Everything kicks off at 5PM and runs until 7PM when Dominique heads to Brouwer's Cafe for an event featuring a special dinner menu and a 9L bottle of the St. Feuillien Triple. We hope to see you here!
