Holiday Pie Perfection and Beer Pairings!
Posted on November 19, 2014
The bakers in the Hopworks kitchen have perfected some holiday desserts. Available by the slice from now until Christmas at both Hopworks locations, these two pies make the perfect ending to a nice evening at the brew pub. Throw a scoop of organic ice cream on top of either of these and you’ll have one of the most memorable nights of your life.
The first, a Chocolate Caramel Cream Pie, is decadence itself distilled and whipped into a minty chocolate crust and a rich, dense chocolate pudding. Topped with whipped cream, chocolate basil ganache, caramel, candied hazelnuts and hop salt, this treat is irresistible.
The bakery has also prepared a classic Apple Pie. Full of juicy apples and spices, nothing gives you that warm, cozy feeling quite like apple pie. This one is a slice of homemade heaven.
The only way to make our dessert even better is to pair it with our delicious, organic beer. You’ll find the warming notes and the toffee and caramel flavors of our Olde Ale is a perfect match for the Chocolate Caramel Cream Pie. It would also pair beautifully with the chocolatey Motherland Russian Imperial Stout. For the Apple Pie, complement the apple with the caramel undertones in our Velvet ESB on Nitro, or our full-flavored Survival Stout which has just enough coffee to make beer and pie a step above coffee and pie.
