Buzz Factor: Beer and Chocolate Pairing
Four to Try at Home
A Wednesday Night Flight Night at Whole Foods Plano promised tastes of some favorite local beers and local chocolates and delivered four to try at home. John and Brian welcomed tasters into the demo kitchen’s compact space, seating us at tables for two set with stemmed glasses and small plates, and began the pour.
The beer: Lakewood Brewing Company Brabo’s Cut, a Belgian style dark beer
The chocolate: Dude Sweet Chocolate Crack in a Box, a bark style chocolate
The buzz: at 9.5% alcohol was pleasantly heavy on malt, and light (IBU 27) on hops. The pairing got everyone’s attention. Dude's owner, Katherine Clapner, says her new riff, Hippie Crack, will be even better. We’ll have to wait and see.
The beer: Deep Ellum Brewing Company’s Double Brown Stout, a Baltic porter
The chocolate: Dude Sweet Chocolate Fungus Amongus, a soft butter toffee
The buzz: The hops sparked a discussion of West Coast breweries out-hopping each other. A taster hailing from Oregon noted assertive hops styles become your expectation when all your local beers are highly hopped. We have only to think of cumin to understand this phenomenon: as Texans, we're so accustomed to cumin, we don’t notice it unless it’s not there. The brown sugar and molasses in Double Brown Stout become full-out praline with Fungus Amongus. Several tasters noted a remarkable finish of French fries, attributed to the toffee’s porcini mushroom powder and toasted pumpkin seeds.
The beer: Lakewood Brewing Company The Temptress, an Imperial Milk Stout
The chocolate: Dude Sweet Chocolate Chubby Nuts, nuts candied and dipped in chocolate
The buzz: milk stouts of old(e) were very low alcohol – typically 2.5% or less – and Temptress exceeds 9%, making Temptress an oxymoron. Temptress and Dude’s Chubby Nuts got everyone talking. And asking for more.
The beer: Lakewood Hop Trapp, a Belgian style IPA
The chocolate: Dude Sweet Chocolate Albatross, a dense fudge
The buzz: malty and complex, Hop Trapp stood up to the darkest chocolate of the evening. Albatross gets its salt and acidity from dehydrated blue cheese. Yet blue cheese flavor is surprisingly undetectable.
Dallas' Dude Sweet Chocolates brought a new twist to the tasting of local beers. Only a handful of the brewers emerging in North Texas are packaging their products but you can take advantage of their brewery tours to get to know them.
So we have great products, but how does one come up with a good pairing? John and Brian say aim for what you perceive as balance and avoid conflicting flavors. The fun is in the exploration.

Francois Chandou Welcomes New Owners of La Cave Warehouse
In Francois's words:
After 36 wonderful years,
Time has come to hang up my boots and say au revoir.
As of March 29, 2013, Kirk and Rhonda
Chandler are the new owners of La Cave Warehouse. Looking back all the way to the 1970s when I started La Cave, I feel very blessed for the amazing career that this country and its people have afforded me.
Growing up in the wine business under the astute mentorship of my late
father, Raymond Chandou, and later studying wine under the late Prof. Emile
Peynaud, it sort of made sense that I would somehow, somewhere end up in the
wine business myself. Texas welcomed me open heartedly and from the jillions
of bottles and cases handled over the last 40 years, my back and I feel that
we are done! It has been a fun ride, from innovating "wine by the glass" and
"wine storage" to teaching scores of wine courses at universities and
community colleges, a 10 year digression into food service, making
presentations to the wine trade in Texas and adjacent States on behalf of
the French Government, consulting with individuals and a plethora of
organizations, charities, etc.
But frankly, what stands out most in my mind are all the people I met along
the way. First, I want to express my gratitude to my wife, Anne, who
provided me, sometimes unconditionally, the necessary support without which
none of that would have been possible.
Wine, the 'healthiest of beverages' is indeed convivial. The times shared,
the bottles opened and the amazing dinners, the friendships forged with many of our clientele and the successes that we have enjoyed will always remain
an extraordinary part of our life. I am very proud of what we have achieved
and there have been times and people I will never forget.
I am very grateful to all of you for having made my life a better life. Many
of you are the side of the business that I will miss most. I hope that we
will cross path again and bid you not adieu' but au revoir'. Kirk and Rhonda are intent and determined to run La Cave the very same way we have and we will still be around and helping for a while. Please call, email and come by to meet the new owners. You will not be disappointed.
