I was in Portland this weekend and SWMBO and I finally made it into Alma Chocolate which is owned by Brewpastor's sister. She was thrilled to know that we were friends of the Brewpastor and made the effort to come by. We will definitely make it a must stop on future trips to Portland. The chocolates were outstanding.

Some of the flavors we sampled were a Smoked Paprika Chocolate Truffel, Lavender Salted Caramels, Mexican Chocolate & Chile Arbol Truffel, Chocolate Ginger Truffel and some Chocolate Dipped Ginger Toffee Brittle. We also picked up some gifts for friends. If in Portland I would encourage you to stop by. Thanks BP for letting us know she was there!

A couple of pictures.

I tend to make it out to portland every 4-6 weeks. Next time I'm in town I'll have to stop by. Always nice to get tips on new places to check out

Looks like the Pastors sister got all the "attractive" genes.

Coming from Sir Humpsalot, I can understand.

Very cool though. I met with Bike N Brew in Pittsburgh last week and had some nice brews at Bocktown Beer & Grill. It's pretty neat to meet fellow HBT'ers for those who get around. I wish I could head up the the PNW some time.

I'm off to West Warwick, RI tomorrow for the week. I plan on hitting Mew's Tavern a couple of times.

If it had been Cheese, I would have expected the same kind of post , but not from Brewtopia.

Man 'Topia, that's awsome. I apparently need to take some time off and hit the road.

Very cool. I will have to talk with Sarah and get her take on things. She was thrilled I am sure! Thanks BT.
