It is Valentines Day so we thought it would be a good time to feature our Chocolate malt. A fresh shipment just arrived from our German partner Ireks Malt.
This IREKS roasted barley malt does not only give the beers a more intensive level of color, it also provides impressions reminiscent of dark chocolate or coffee. Standard specification: Method*

One of our favorites around the tap-room comes from Down The Road Brewing in Everett MA. They use a combination of our pilsner and chocolate malt for their Hot Cocoa Porter.
