Ah, love. Valentine's Day is right around the corner, which means it is time for Pike Brewing's annual Chocofest. It's all about foreplay before the big day. Beer, booze, wine, and food of all types. A glorious, gluttonous celebration of flavor!
The Sixth Annual Chocofest takes place this Sunday at Pike Brewing in downtown Seattle. It's one of the season's best-loved events. Get tickets NOW. This event usually sells out. Below we share more information directly from Pike Brewing.

The Pike Brewing Company is celebrating our Sixth Annual Pike Chocofest on Sunday, February 9, 2014, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm. We hope you will join us.
We started Pike Chocofest in 2009 as a romantic experience, to expose the sensual relationship between chocolate and beer, as Seattle is a love-nest for both. Wine, spirits, cider and mead also pair deliciously with chocolate, though perhaps they are not as orgasmic a combination as with beer.
"Au contraire" you say! Pleasurably answer that question at Pike Chocofest 2014 where a wide variety of potables will be paired with chocolate and savory comestibles... a tasting from, as they say, "soup to nuts" and "sweet to savory." In 2013, over 500 people attended and experienced food and drink from over 70 vendors; an orgy for food and drink lovers!
This year Pike has expanded Chocofest and is targeting 600 guests, with 80 vendors. For Pike Chocofest, the Pike Pub will only be open for Chocofest guests who will be able to enjoy food and drink in Pike's Microbrewery Museum; each of the rooms in the pub; in the brewery, as well as in the main 1st Avenue entry level and the new Pike Place Market atrium.
Pike Chocofest is a pleasure for vendors and guests alike; a Valentine's gift for everyone involved, including Puget Sound Keepers Alliance for helping to keep local waters pristine for another love potion featured at Pike Chocofest, oysters on the half shell.
Get tickets via Brown Paper Tickets. This is the perfect holiday gift for the food/beer/chocolate lover in your life. This event usually sells out. $45 in advance / $50 at the door.
