Just in time for Valentine’s Day, here’s an event at Pint Defiance for all of you “I don’t know what to do for my honey” last-minute folks.

Grab your sweetie and head to the Pint Defiance beer shop and taproom  Friday or Saturday for an all-day event pairing chocolate and beer. For eleven bucks, you’ll get to sample four beers paired with four chocolates. Read on for more details.

Read more about chocolate: Check back tomorrow for a story about a local truffle maker entering a new chapter in her chocolate business. I’ll also tell you about four other confectioners that make their own sweets and treats right here in the South Sound – perfect last-minute gift destinations.

From Pint Defiance:

The latest news from Wall Street projects chocolate markets to rise sharply the second week of February. In preparation, we’ve invested heavily in strategic stockpiles from our friends at Cocoa Tantily, and we are passing the return on investments on to you!

Last year’s Beer and Chocolate pairing sold out so quickly that we are extending the event to two days. Join us starting at 11:30am on Valentine’s Day (that’s Friday the 14th, guys) for flights of four beers expertly paired with four delectable chocolates. (All of this deliciousness for only $11!) Don’t fret if you’ve already made plans for that night, because we’ll also be serving samplers on Saturday the 15th until they’re gone.

– Speakeasy Black Hand Chocolate Milk Stout/Dark Malt Chocolate
– Epic Double Skull Doppelbock/Cinnamon Cayenne Bon Bon
– pFriem Wit/Earl Gray White Chocolate
– Deschutes Class of ’88 Smoked Porter/Black Salted Caramel
