Fireworks and celebrations. Great food and good friends. Sweet and savory. Good things come in pairs and during the month of July those pairing are likely to show up in a picnic basket.
Question: Other than our caramels, what is caramel gold in color and best served in a cold glass on a hot summer day? BEER, of course.
There is nothing better than a great beer with friends at a picnic. As our friends at Enegren Brewing Co say, “There is something special about beer. Something uniquely intrinsic about its nature that brings people together to celebrate life, feats of strength and the honor earned from a hard day's work.”
We agree, so we paired up with our caramel gold brother from another mother to create this month’s flavor of the month, Dark Malt Caramel. When we tasted Enegren Brewery’s hand-crafted Altbier, “The Valkyrie,” we knew that it was a match made in heaven. Valkyrie’s smooth toasty and caramel taste pairs perfectly with Le Bon Garcon caramels to create a caramel with hints of chocolate and sweetness balanced by a hefty dose of German Nobel hops.
We can’t wait for you to try Le Bon Garcon’s Dark Malt Caramels inspired by Enegren Brewery’s Valkyrie.
Perfectly sized for picnic basket packing. (say that three times fast)
Enjoy Responsibly. :-)
