Hedonist & Genesee: Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter


For those who live a hedonistic lifestyle, pairing chocolate and beer is a tried and true way to indulge. But what if you could skip a step and stimulate your senses all at once with a new collaboration? On December 5th,  2014 a dream of decadence came true when we teamed up with Genesee Brew House to bring the first taste of Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter to the city of Rochester.

Touting a 2012 feature in the New York Times, our Salted Caramels are a longtime favorite among our customers. When their subtly salty sweetness met the robust, full flavor of an English Style Genesee porter, it was an instant match made in hedonistic heaven. After being treated to the inaugural sips of Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter at a small private tasting, a group of Genesee accounts raved about the beer’s rich deliciousness.

The first free public tasting of Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter was held in our shop on Friday, December 5th. Genesee’s brewmaster, Dean Jones, was on hand for the evening to serve samples and enlighten attendees on how the collaboration came to be. To coincide with the festivities that night, our resident craftswoman, Madelyn Neva, hosted the opening of her “Hand-Painted Holiday” art show. It was a night for pleasure-seekers of all sorts to come by and indulge their senses with chocolate, beer, and art. With small batches of Salted Caramel Chocolate Porter now available at select craft brew carriers, this indulgence can continue!

Pleasure, handcrafted. Hedonist Artisan Chocolates are handmade with fresh ingredients to give as gifts or indulge yourself.
