Chocolate and beer, two of life’s many luxurys, have come together in the form of two decadent chocolate beers, created by none other than Whittaker’s and Garage Project.
Following the success of the first chocolate beer the brands created together in 2018, which was named one of the top three flavoured stouts in the world, drinkers can now enjoy a dark chocolate beer with espresso, hazelnut and orange, or a white chocolate beer with golden raspberry and lemon.
The innovative new brews are a locally-made take on the emerging chocolate beer trend being seen around the world and are ready to drink just in time for the festive season.
Whittaker’s co-chief operating office, Holly Whittaker, says the brand is thrilled to be working with the talented team at Garage Project again on another locally-made, world-class product.
“We have a shared passion for quality, innovation and artisan craftsmanship, and these delicious new chocolate beers are a testament to that passion with some flavour notes that make these extra-special,” says Holly.
Co-founder of Garage Project, Jos Ruffell, says working with Whittaker’s face to face has been a great opportunity, with the two brands being based in Wellington.
“It’s meant we were able to keep experimenting until we perfected our new chocolate beers to meet the high standards we both hold ourselves to and have a bit of fun together along the way,” he says.
“Chocolate beer lovers who are keen to try these new products should get in quick as the first limited chocolate beer that we made together in 2018 sold-out in record time. We’re excited to see the response to our White and Dark Chocolate Beers, and think beer and chocolate lovers alike are in for a treat,”
The two chocolate beers can be found in all New World supermarkets, selected Countdown stores and other retail outlets, all Garage Project venues, and the Garage Project webstore.
