The chocolate is made with Proper Job IPA. A drop of our famous golden brew is added to sugar, before being paired to perfection with Indonesian cocoa beans.
Brewed with American hops and the finest quality malt, Proper Job is a big, bold, and powerfully hopped IPA that explodes with citrus, pineapple, and grapefruit notes.
It doesn’t stop there – we’ve also hidden a golden ticket inside one of the Easter Eggs. The lucky person to find the golden ticket will win the ultimate brewery break in Cornwall. The prize includes a two-night stay at the Pier House in Charlestown, a visit to the brewery and a case of Proper Job to enjoy at home.
Georgina Young, Brewing Director said: “We’re so excited to have collaborated with Chocolarder on our first ever Easter Egg. Fans of Proper Job should get in there quick. We only made a small amount and once they’re gone, they’re gone!”
She added: “Beer and chocolate – what better combination could there be? The bitter, complex flavour of the dark chocolate complements the sweet, citrus, pineapple and grapefruit notes of Proper Job perfectly – it’s a real treat for the taste buds.”
Chocolarder is the largest bean to bar chocolate maker in Cornwall. The team ethically source cocoa beans from around the world, and use renovated antique machinery, to turn them into award-winning chocolate in their Falmouth factory. Chocolader does not support child slavery or deforestation - farmers are paid fair wages and all packaging is entirely plastic-free.
Mike Longman, Director at Chocolarder said: “We got to have the fun of picking exactly what flavours from the chocolate and beer we wanted to end up in these eggs. The result has all the complexity of this single-origin Indonesian cocoa, married with the toasty malt and light citrus flavours of Proper Job. They're proper egg-cellent!”
