Granville Island Craft Beer & Chocolate Pairing

Vern Lambourne, Brewmaster - Granville Island Brewery

On Friday November 5th I attended a wonderful event that was put on by the West Coast Chocolate Festival, it was beer and chocolate pairing evening, specifically Granville Island Beer & Rogers Chocolates.

The evening also saw Bella Gelateria maestro James Coleridge create 4 flavours as he presented 3 sorbettos and 1 gelato made from Granville Island Craft Beer, these flavours were the Lions Winter Ale Sorbetto, Chocolate Stout Sorbetto, Cypress Honey Lager Sorbetto and my favourite Wort Gelato!
