Food & Wine | Dufflet & Steam Whistle LCBO gift pack

Along with the ladies, we have a lot of Valentine’s Day themed posts on the way. Gifts ideas, contest, features and more… we are working very hard to make sure you know what we will be doing on the 14th of February. But does Valentine’s Day need to be only heart shaped boxes of chocolate and stereotypical red roses? This year, why not think outside the box? One great idea to satisfy him and her in my mind is the collaboration of Steam Whistle and Toronto’s own Dufflet. Chocolate, beer and the one you love. The rest is up to you… 

Launched earlier this year, this unconventional pairing has already been making waves for beer and chocolate fans alike. Combining Steam Whistle’s iconic Pilsner with two delicious Pilsner infused chocolates.

“Months of taste-testing ensued until Dufflet and the brewery settled on two favourites. In the Pretzel Beer Bites, Dufflet infuses Steam Whistle’s Czech-style Pilsner into a chocolate ganache, surrounds it with a crunchy mix of pretzels, vanilla cookie crumbs and white chocolate, then covers it in milk chocolate. Beer Ganache Truffles get their rich, malty essence from the Pilsner-ganache filling enrobed in dark chocolate. A keepsake tin of eight beer chocolates included with six bottles of Steam Whistle makes this the perfect pair to share.”

This gift pack retails for $24.95 and includes 6 bottles of Steam Whistle and a collectible tin with 8 hand-crafted beer bites & truffles. While supplies last, this is the perfect addition to your Valentine’s Day plans with the one you love. Click here to check availability at your local LCBO.
