Thanks to The Brewery, Pinoys can now sip the goodness of chocolate with that hot hint of the well-loved labuyo.
Filipinos love their chili, especially the local bird’s eye pepper or siling labuyo. This is what Oliver Ellrotte, the pub’s resident beer maestro, banked on when he crafted the Chokolate Boom to celebrate The Brewery’s first year anniversary.
Those brave enough to try this one-of-a-kind beer will experience a very smooth and subtle smoky taste coupled with a whisper of spicy finish, courtesy of the local labuyo chilis.
The beer is brewed with the finest chocolate malt that gives it the color and taste of chocolate along with a bottom fermented craft lager beer.
Ellrotte, German-born beer master, had extensive experience mastering the art and science of brewing beer in Germany, Thailand, Cambodia, India, China and Eichof, Switzerland’s biggest brewery.
He's very proud that their bar does not copy or repeat brews. Their aim, he said, is to produce new flavors that uses local ingredients.
“I was really excited to use the siling labuyo to add a new flavor to the menu. It was my first time to work with that particular spice so it was hard. I had to continuously add labuyo to get that right flavor,” Oliver said during a media dinner hosted by The Brewery.
