Just a few miles across the Minnesota/Wisconsin boarder lyes Dave’s Brewfarm. The brewery, which is just like how it sounds, is self sustainable by growing their own hows and using solar and wind energy to help power the brewery. Bottom line is, they help by making efficient beer that is delicious.
After landing my hands on their chocolate porter, titled, Cow Pie – I was very surprised by how complex the brew was. The brew features sweet chocolaty notes packed with flavorful hops – which make one hell of a experience for this brew. I can say, this may be my first brew by these guys but it won’y be my last. Oh, sorry for lack of info on pricing and finding this beer as it was gifted to me.

We featured this brew last year and we need to once again. Every Valentines Day, Boulevard Brewery’s highly sought after Chocolate Ale is released. This cocoa infused ale just hit the shelves a little over a month ago (mainly in the KC area), and it is safe to say it sold out a looooong time ago. From my brief time living there, this was a great day for beer lovers to rejoice and share the limited time release.
The brew only comes in a bomber with a corked top, for a relatively low price around $10. After popping the cork and getting the initial smell of delicious chocolate, it is officially game on. The beer is so well balanced between the bitter chocolaty notes and nut malt flavor. It is safe to say It leaves you wanting every last drop.
Don’t worry people, this brew does surface in in the Minneapolis area as I randomly stumbled across two bottles on the shelf. Make sure to keep your eyes peeled for the ever delicious Chocolate Ale in a nearby pub or liquor store.
