These 1.5 oz. gems of chocolate are made by Fritz Knipschildt, Master Chocolatier of Chocopologie in Norwalk and Knipschildt Chocolatier.

Brew-view: Even More Denmark Chocolate Stout, Evil Twin Brewing and Chocopologie

7 Jan

Even More Denmark Evil Twin Brewing

“Much has been said about the Danes. Like they seem reserved at first and are obsessed with bikes, food and ‘hygge’ – Danes are always on time, they appear liberal yet traditional and leave their babies outside in prams while they shop. We at Evil Twin Brewing teamed up with fellow Dane at Chocopologie and decided to set the story straight with a Chocolate Stout infused with smoked chestnuts and even more Denmark. The punctual aromas, comfortable taste and liberating body will make you feel like one of the happiest people on earth.”

chocopologie-by-knipschildt-chocolatier-77307138You’ll find this on the side label of Even More Denmark, a chocolate stout brewed by Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø of Evil Twin Brewing in South Carolina with the help of Chocopologie by House of Knipschildt chocolatier Fritz Knipschildt.  Fritz brought his internationally known chocolate to the party that was used to brew the beer with and Jeppe took care of the rest.  After production of the beer, Fritz created Even More Denmark infused truffles that you can purchase at Whole Foods Brooklyn.

Let’s check out what these two crazy Danes (certainly not crazier than Hamlet) did and get all Even More Denmark up in this bitch.

Chocopologie + Evil Twin Brewing = Even More Denmark Collaboration

6 Nov

Back in August we let you all know about the devilishly amazing Evil Twins Brewing.  Basically, Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø is a genius in the beer world.   He started brewing beer in Denmark and then the awards started rolling in.  Ratings of 99 and 100 were given to his brews…and then he moved here to America to bring a little Evil into our world. He finds breweries that he loves, sets up shop, brews some kill beer, packs it, then heads off to the next location.  Case in point:  Ryan and the Beaster Bunny, a saison that was produced right at Two Roads in Stratford, CT.

Celebrate the new year with the gift that keeps on giving:  chocolate truffles.  It keeps on giving because you’ll learn how to make your own batch.  But, we’re not talking just any plain ol’ truffle that you could pick up at CVS.  We’re talking truffles that have brought Oprah to her knees (and probably made her break a diet or two).  Yes, we’re talking about the fine work of master chocolatier Fritz Knipschildt.

Fritz is the owner of Chocopologie Cafe, a favorite spot in Norwalk and becoming a go-to spot for hungry and chocolate-crazed Stamfordites.  Join Fritz (a Chopped alum) at either of these spots for a nice light dinner (savory crepes, sandwiches, or salads) followed by a dark chocolate truffle making class.  Yes, yes…you’ll be able to take the truffles home.  But, most importantly, you’ll learn how to make these yourself and will have the recipe with you to treasure.

Here’s the info:
