Whether you love or loath what some call the holiday invented by Hallmark, Valentine’s Day is precisely a month away. And while you may boycott this holiday by avoiding romantic restaurants or flower shops, don’t miss an excuse to drink dozens of chocolate infused beers. Yes, that’s right: Pike Brewing’s annual Chocofest on February 10, “a romantic evening (or not) of chocolate, beer, wine, mead and spirits,” is an extravaganza you won’t want to miss. What they coin as “foreplay before the big day,” or what you might deem an excuse to drink a load of tasty booze and screw the rest.
The Pike Brewing Company is celebrating Pike Chocofest on February 10, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. We started Pike Chocofest in 2009 as a romantic experience, to expose the sensual relationship between chocolate and beer since Seattle is a love-nest for both. Wine, spirits, cider and mead also cohabitate deliciously with chocolate, though perhaps they are not as orgasmic a combination as with beer.
“Au contraire” you say! Pleasurably answer that question at Pike Chocofest 2013 where a wide variety of potables will be paired with chocolate and savory comestibles a tasting from as they say, “soup to nuts” and “sweet to savory.” In 2012, over 300 people attended and experienced food and drink from 60 vendors; an orgy for food and drink lovers!
This year Pike has expanded Chocofest and is targeting 400 guests, with 69 vendors. Because the experience of each of our participating partners has been so satisfying, the Pike Pub will only be open for Chocofest guests who will be able to enjoy food and drink in Pike’s Microbrewery Museum; each of the rooms in the pub; in the brewery, as well as the main arcade entry level.
Pike Chocofest is a pleasure for vendors and guests alike a Valentine gift for everyone involved, including Puget Sound Keepers Alliance for helping to keep local waters pristine for another love potion featured at Pike Chocofest, oysters on the half shell..
Enjoy over 69 local vendors beer, wine, spirits, chocolates and savories as well as our Chocofest 2013 commemorative glass.
This event benefits the Puget Soundkeeper Alliance.
Chocofest is held at Pike Brewing Company, 1415 1st Ave., Seattle. Admission is $45 and you can purchase your tickets now through Brownpaper Tickets.
