American Craft Beer and Icelandic Craft Chocolate - Pairing
Mantra Artisan Ales and Omnom
24 February 2018
This week, Mantra Artisan Ales is in town for the 7th annual Icelandic Beer Festival all the way from Tennessee, USA.
They've brought some adventurous brewskies with them to celebrate the anniversary of the end of beer prohibition in Iceland!
In collaboration with Kex Hostel and Mantra Artisian Ales, we invite you to a curious night of pairing beer and chocolate (off-venue from Kexland Beer Festival Program):
What flavors are in chocolate?
Are they enhanced with beer?
What flavors are "allowed" in beer?
Does beer change chocolate, or vice versa?
What’s your favorite pairing?
This event is open to the public and will be hosted in English.

The team behind Omnom makes chocolate from organic cocoa beans sourced from all over the world. The flavors vary by region and are fun to discover and compare. Other creations include signature coffee, licorice and caramel.
Mantra Brewery: In early 2015, brewers Derrick Morse and Chad Frost set their sights on historic Franklin, Tennessee as the home of Mantra Artisan Ales. Derrick, out of Boulder, Colorado had been brewmaster of a local brewpub for the past few years, creating a complex array of intricate beers earning him the nickname of “mad scientist.” Chad returned to Franklin from a professional brewing program in Berlin, Germany. With the news that a local brewery would be vacating their facility to expand, Morse and Frost jumped the opportunity. Joining forces with chef Maneet Chauhan, the Mantra team set out to create premium, worldly-inspired artisan beers.
Kex is a social hostel housed in an old biscuit factory in downtown Reykjavik furnished with salvaged materials and found objects from various places. KEX is an organic concept blending vintage industrial feel with eclectic contemporary touch. What a host they are, check out their events schedule on their facebook page.
