Have you tried drinking our award winning Chockwork Orange 6.5% abv, brewed in Brentwood, with a chocolate orange? Apparently, according to a Telegraph article, it’s one of life’s guilty pleasures.
Chockwork & Chocolate Orange
The story written by Hugo McEwen, with some input from Britain’s Beer Alliance, suggests partnering chocolate with beer is one of life’s guilty pleasures. One of the examples he cites is our Chockwork Orange and a Terry’s Chocolate Orange. And we have to agree, you cannot find a finer synergy between flavours.
MD of Brentwood Brewery, Roland Kannor said: “Praise for this food and Chockwork Orange beer combination has pleased the brewery team no end.
“Making beers that get people talking is one of the joys of the job so the brewery was especially excited to get a mention in the Telegraph, discussing the surprisingly decadent taste combination that eating chocolate with certain beers can bring.”
Chockwork’s Claim to Fame
Chockwork Orange is the official beer of the book A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess.
