Chocolate Beers in Boulder for Valentine’s Day

boulder chocolate beer
Chocolate is the obvious star of Valentine’s Day with more than 58 million pounds of it being sold during the week of the holiday. While I love to eat a good piece of chocolate, as a beer lover, there’s nothing better than drinking it instead. These Boulder County breweries are serving chocolate the best way there is — in a tasty craft beer. 

J Wells Brewery | Chocolate Milk Stout

A subtle coffee flavor follows an up-front roasty chocolate taste in this creamy stout. It’s brewed with a stout malt blend with American and British malts that made right in the brewery.

Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery | Chocolate Dip Stout

At Mountain Sun, the entire month of February is devoted to stouts for their appropriately named “Stout Month”. The Chocolate Dip Stout is brewed with 10 pounds of Beglian chocolate bars smashed up to result in a delicious dessert beer.

Mountain Sun Pub & Brewery, 1535 Pearl Street, Boulder

Southern Sun Pub & Brewery, 627 South Broadway, Boulder

 

Avery Brewing | Vanilla Bean Stout

This high-alcohol (weighing in at 10.8% ABV) is part of Avery’s botanicals and barrels collection and is brewed with Tongan, Ugandan, and Mexican whole vanilla beans. It’s aged in bourbon barrels and has notes of chocolate, caramel, and molasses.

Avery Brewing, 4910 Nautilus Ct., Boulder

  

Wild Woods Brewery |S’mores Stout

All of Wild Woods’ brews are inspired by the great outdoors, and there’s nothing more iconic in camping than a gooey, decadent s’more. This is a dark and smooth sweet stout aged on rich cacao nibs and brewed with chocolate malt.

Fate Brewing Company | To the Nuts

This special release beer combines one of chocolate’s best counterparts – peanut butter. It’s a sweet chocolate peanut butter porter that is under 5% ABV. The perfect accompaniment is their churro sundae, a coffee IPA ice cream, dulce de leche, and topped with a spiced honey bacon. 

Fate Brewing Company, 1600 38th Street, Boulder

 

Boulder Beer | Shake Chocolate Porter

Flavors of dark chocolate, coffee, and caramel are a welcomed twist to this classic American porter. It’s brewed with cacao nibs and chocolate wheat.

Oskar Blues Brewery | Death by Coconut

This delicious Irish Porter is made with dark chocolate and extra dark caramel malt. Intense pure liquid cacao combined with coconut for a rich yet drinkable beer. If you’re enjoying this brew at their Homemade Liquid and Solids restaurant, pair it with a warm chocolate brownie topped with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and cookie sprinkles.

Oskar Blues Brewery, 1800 Pike Road, Unit B, Longmont

 

Sanitas Brewing Company | Chocolate Cherry Stout

Forget the box of chocolate covered cherries for Valentine’s Day. Opt for this beer that combines the delicious flavors of both. This rare beer is part of their limited collection and is cask conditioned.

Sanitas Brewing Company, 3550 Frontier Avenue, Unit A, Boulder
