Beer and Chocolate: A match made in Belgium! It’s hard to meet a more authentic Belgian than Werner. His two biggest passions are chocolate and beer. He has found a way to fuse Belgium’s ... moremost famous products into interesting chocolate and beer pairing tastings. Werner has truly found a hole in the market. His years of experience as a as a chocolatier for the world famous Callebaut Belgian Fine Chocolate and his knowledge of beer as a beer sommelier make him an expert in both fields.

Werner's philosophies: Craftmanship is an art. Passion is everything.

Beer and chocolate have a lot more in common than you would think! If you think of beers like porter and stout, they both have that chocolate aroma, just from the combination of malt, yeast and hops. The similarity of beer and chocolate lies within their complexity, in their flavours but also in production and the ingredients.

Werner has found out that you can perfectly pair artisan beers and fine chocolate pralines, providing a delicate flavour harmony. Or even more interesting: find contrasting flavours in beer and chocolate to strengthen both their subtleties. 

After a lot of research, Werner now organises interesting beer and chocolate tastings all over Belgium. His knowledge and expertise in beer and chocolate is impressive!
