Chocolate and Belgian Beer Come Together Like Never Before

Belgian Beer Chocolates

Many people already know that Belgian beer pairs well with chocolate. Today that concept is being taken to a whole new level. Let’s explore how chocolate and Belgian beer is coming together like never before as we look at some of Belgium’s best beer chocolates.

The owner of Martin’s Brewery in Belgium and Brouwerij Timmermans in Itterbeek, Flemish Brabant, has teamed up with Belgian chocolatier, Corne Port-Royal in order to produce a gift box filled with magnificent chocolates that are actually filled with four different kinds of Belgian beer. These innovative beer chocolates are available at Corne Port-Royal’s shops in both Belgium and France and at the Timmermans Brewery.

Corne Port-Royal’s chocolate recipes are based on four different famous Belgian beers that belong to Timmermans Finest Beer Selection:

  • Kriek Timmermans
  • Blanche Lambicus Timmermans
  • Martin’s Pale Ale
  • Bourgogne des Flandres Brune

Each chocolate features the colors of its accredited beer.

De Heeren Van Liedekercke in Denderleeuw, East Flanders offers over 300 different beers and was rated the best beer restaurant in the world in 2013. Not only will you find exceptional beer at the café, you will also find five different beer pralines. The owners of De Heeren Van Liedekercke, Joost and Tom De Four partnered with Het Chocoladehuis to create the beer pralines which include:

  • Sour Kriek from Hanssens with a white chocolate shell
  • Sweet Kriek from Hanssens with a strong milk chocolate
  • Sodalitasbie, which is a ganache of blond beer with fondant chocolate filling in a milk chocolate shell
  • Orval, which is a ganache of Trappist Orval with milk chocolate and bitter fondant chocolate
  • Heerenbier, one of the house beers of De Heeren van Liedekercke with a filling and shell made of fondant chocolate

These exceptional beer pralines are only available at De Heeren van Liedekercke.

Brouwerij Het Anker in Mechelen, Antwerp Province also offers beer chocolates that are filled with a delicious cream made from their Cuvee van de Keizer/Grand Cru of the Emperor.
