Chocolate & Raspberries For Valentine's Day!

Samuel Smith's Chocolate Stout and Lindemans Framboise for Valentines Day

What could be more perfect for Valentine's Day? Blend the two! Put 2-3 ounces of Lindemans Framboise into a pint glass, then top it off with Samuel Smith's Organic Chocolate Stout. The deep notes of roast malt and chocolate marry beautifully with profound, aromatic raspberry - try it! Look for retail stores, bars and restaurants to be offering these lovely beers in the month of February.

Samuel Smith's Old Brewery at Tadcaster, one of England's few remaining independent breweries, was founded in 1758 and is the oldest in Yorkshire. Their Organic Chocolate Stout, introduced in 2012, melds the full, roasty flavor of stout to chocolate: it's a lush, tasty, beautiful ale.

Lindemans Brewery, established in 1822 and still run by the founding family, brews lambic ales - fermented only via wild, airborne yeast - in the Belgian countryside outside Brussels. Lindemans Framboise Raspberry Lambic outsells all other lambics in the US: it's the perfect combination of complex depth from wild yeast and sweet, aromatic raspberries.
