Wednesday, February 28th: Chocolate, Cheese, & Beer Pairing @ Throwback Brewery

Every year during Portsmouth Beer week, we like to play with and push the culinary possibilities of pairing hand-crafted chocolate and thoughtfully selected cheeses from local New England and NY artisans with our farm-fresh beers.

This year marks the 7th offering of this event, and we continue to be inspired by all the magical ways we can pair this delicious trio! If you are like us, and love cheese, chocolate, and beer, be sure to grab your ticket today! (As a ‘heads up’, this event has sold out for the past 6 years in a row.)

The event this year will be held on Wednesday, February 28th at 6pm here at Throwback Brewery.

Here is the menu – we think it is four courses of deliciousness!
