As the craft beer movement continues to grow, enthusiasts are finding new ways to celebrate their favorite brews. One of the latest trends lets beer connoisseurs be kids again by pairing beers with candy to highlight flavor. Just as wine and chocolate are soul mates, so too are brews and confections.
Having embraced the craft beer trend earlier this year with the launch of the award-winning world’s first beer-flavored jelly bean, Draft Beer Jelly Belly jelly beans, Jelly Belly Candy Co. worked with Jackie Dodd, cookbook author, beer expert and the voice behind The Beeroness blog, to create a lineup of beer and candy pairings just in time for summer parties. Entertain guests and explore new flavors and brews at any beer celebration with seven pairings, including Candy Corn and white ale and Crushed Pineapple Jelly Belly beans and saison.
