BURLINGTON, ON – Christy’s Gourmet Gifts, a family-owned chocolate and sweets company, has launched a new product that features beer from a variety of Ontario craft breweries as a key ingredient.
Christy’s Craft Beer Brittle is a line of hard toffee candy made using pure butter, Ontario beers, and other ingredients including almonds, pretzels and spices. The beers used are selected to be as local as possible to where the brittle will be available, such as Steam Whistle Pilsner for Toronto-area shows and sales, and Muskoka Brewery’s Harvest Ale and Winter Beard Dark Chocolate Cranberry Stout for the recently held Bala Cranberry Festival.
Christy’s also produces co-branded brittles to be sold at brewery retail stores, including a version made for Nickel Brook Brewery using Naughty Neighbour Pale Ale.
Craft Beer Brittle is available at the Christy’s retail store in Burlington, online via the Christy’s website, at select partner brewery stores in Ontario, and at various craft and consumer shows throughout the year, including the upcoming One of a Kind Christmas Show in Toronto.
