Who put the chocolate on my hops?

You heard it right, Hop Candy, Hopolates!  I don’t have a very big sweet tooth, but when Phillip Green sent me these chocolates to try, how could I refuse!

If you are out at a beer event and happen to find Phil and his candies, grab a beer and give them a try.  I promise you, they are nothing like you’ve ever had before.  The strong bitterness of the hops and the sweetness of the milk chocolate is a pleasant give and take on my palette.  While I’m eating my Hopolates with an Ommegang Zuur, a flemish red, but you may want to try these with a hopped up Stout or IPA.  Definitely a candy made for you hopheads!

If you would like to try them, you can also check out Phillip’s web site, http://www.hopcandyinc.com/

    I had the pleasure of meeting Phillip at our GABF #BrewDEN meetup. He didn’t have his hopolates on him, but we let him stay anyways.

    In all seriousness it’s a great idea and Phillip is a motivated dude. I’m sure he’ll do well with this venture.

    That is good to hear, Billy. I wish Phil the best of luck. It’s not easy to get a new product off the ground.
