Oregon Craft Brewers Truffle Collection
A Different Kind of 12 Pack
Inspired by Oregon's farm-to-glass craft brewing movement, Julian Rose, Moonstruck's Master Chocolatier, created this distinct collection of truffles. Working closely with Oregon craft brewers Widmer Bother's Brewing®, Rogue Ales®, Deschutes Brewery®, and Full Sail Brewing®, Julian created a collection featuring four distinct flavors, rich, nutty sweet, dark and intense, fresh and hoppy using four types of beer; Wheat, Brown, Porter and IPA
Chef Julian, our master chocolatier, has teamed up with craft beer pioneers to develop a rich, full-bodied truffle collection. Featuring four of Oregon's well-loved and distinct craft brews — wheat, brown, porter, and IPA — this collection will satisfy the discerning beer and chocolate lover's palate. Inspired by a holiday mixed case of beer and the product of six months' trial and effort, the Craft Brewers Collection is a perfect selection for anyone looking to discover the incredible blend of chocolate and beer. It's not hard to see why this standout collection is Chef Julian's Choice.
Each 12-pack collection features three each of the following truffles:
Widmer Brother's Brewing® Hefeweizen Truffle
This original American "Hefe" has rich wheat and yeast derived flavors and finish with hints of lemon or citrus in the finish. The wheat and yeast provide a rich body and clean finish.
With a balanced blend of Moonstruck white chocolate with a whisper of dark chocolate, it really brings forward those "bread" notes and aroma, so distinct to Hefeweizens.
Pairs well with Mangos, apples or Bayonne ham with melon…and of course to be enjoyed with a Widmer Brother's Brewing® Hefeweizen.
Full Sail Brewing Co.® IPA Truffle
An award-winning ridiculously tasty IPA
The British colonists who once visited India invented India Pale Ale. But we seriously doubt they ever enjoyed one after a day of full-blown kite-boarding. What a shame.
Each award-winning Full Sail® IPA is brewed with a generous serving of Centennial hops from Washington's lush Yakima Valley and two-row Pale & Crystal malt. This thirst-quenching brew has a pronounced citrus flavor and a full, malty body. The hoppy flavor of this ganache is a result of a clever blend of milk, dark, and ivory chocolates with just the right amount of beer reduction to bring out the freshness loved by so many beer drinkers.
Rogue Ales® Hazelnut Brown Nectar Truffle
A twist to the traditional European brown ale, Rogue's Hazelnut Brown Nectar has a rich and nutty color and aroma of roasted hazelnuts, with a smooth malty finish. Hint of coffee with a blend of malts and hops from the Rogue farm and free range Oregon coastal water.
The hazelnut flavor is enhanced by a generous amount of Oregon roasted hazelnut praline mixed into the Moonstruck milk chocolate ganache to bring out forward the nuttiness of the beer.
Pairs well with crispy bacon, crunchy Belgian butter cookies or cognac infuse dry raisins….and of course to be enjoyed with a Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar.
Deschutes Brewery® Black Butte Porter Truffle
A dark beer, Black Butte Porter has as light hop bitterness up front that enhances the distinctive chocolate and roasted finish.
It's prized for its intense, complex flavor and we mix it with Moonstruck dark and milk chocolate blended ganache for a sophisticated treat.
Pairs well with bold foods such as Parma ham, prosciutto or aged cheddar….and of course to be enjoyed with a Deschutes Black Butte Porter.
Dark Chocolate (unsweetened chocolate, sugar, cocoa butter, soy lecithin [an emulsifier], vanilla extract), Ivory Chocolate (sugar, cocoa butter, milk, soy lecithin [an emulsifier], natural vanilla), Milk Chocolate (sugar, milk, cocoa butter, unsweetened chocolate, soy lecithin [an emulsifier], vanilla extract), Full Sail Brewing Co.

Great idea and well done!

I got these as a Christmas gift from an uncle that lives in Portland. He knows my love for a good beer and these are such a unique idea. This collection is a great gift for anyone that enjoys a good craft brew and will appreciate all the different flavors that each one has due to the beer being in them. I even got a box for friends that also enjoy craft beers and they loved them as well!

They were a gift so I did not get a taste. Receiver of gift thought they were amazing. I thought price was reasonable for premium chocolate but thought shipping cost was high.
Loved the chocolates!

I bought the brewers collection for my husband's birthday and they were delicious. The tumbled chocolates and distiller's collection were equally awesome. Great products, wonderful chocolates!

These chocolates exceeded my expectations.
Best birthday gift ever
Sep 1, 2016 | By Janet
I gave this as a birthday gift to my husband. We are both craft beer drinkers and have been for years (long before it was cool :-) and I thought he would enjoy such a unique gift. He loved it! Fortunately he shared with me and we both thought the truffles were amazing; delicious and beautifully crafted. If you are a beer lover or a chocolate lover, you will not be disappointed. Well packaged too-truffles arrived in perfect shape.

is pretty good- needs more protection placement - ie a white wrap over box? absorbs heat. Crate and Barrel box is white, but idea maybe another way, less styro, more tech that saves environment- ie air conditioned shipping and so on with a type of advanced yet simple technology that works - cause I like 4th of July but really just checking asking if I ordered a second moonstruck box of ale chocolate for my self. I thought I did....one candy seems melted a bit, so I will help. I am watering dry lawn, and using a efficient fan---less a/c but now for chocolates have it low

These were really yummy! First, they're really cute - exactly as pictured, and actually slightly larger than I expected. The quality of the chocolate was excellent, and the flavor of the beers really came through without being overpowering. We gave them as gifts for Father's Day. Would also make an excellent Groomsmen's gift for a wedding party - or, of course, for anyone who just likes beer. Only suggestion would be that I would love one that was more of a true "dark chocolate". Would definitely order again.
Makes a great gift

Excellent! We will purchase from you again! Thank you!

This was the perfect Fathers Day gift. Each day now, as he samples a new flavor, is a delight to him. Way to go, Moonstruck!
Wonderful Chocolates! Amazing Customer Service!
Jun 27, 2016 | By Tina
I was looking for something different for my husband for Father's Day. I came across these chocolates on the internet and was drawn in by the design of the chocolates, Beer and Ice Cream! We live in a very warm climate so there was a concern as to whether the chocolates would melt when they arrived. Customer Service was amazing! They shipped the product in an ice packed container and coordinated with me a time when I would be available to receive the delivery. The chocolates arrived in PERFECT condition! My husband opened them on Father's Day and he thought they were so cool! He LOVES chocolate and said these were some of the best flavors he had ever had! I would highly recommend this company for both product and customer service.
Chocolate + Beer = Yum

Delicious combination of some of our favorite brews and chocolate. Hubby was happy with it on Father's Day. Packed exceptionally well to stay cool and perfect.

Impressed all the way around
Jun 22, 2016 | By Julie
I ordered the 12-piece Oregon Craft Brewers Truffle Collection for Father's day. I was so impressed it arrived within a week and was packaged in a cooler with ice bags. Chocolates were perfect when they were opened. Taste and texture are wonderful.
Jun 19, 2016 | By Jackie Talladivedula
We were here when box was delivered. We immediately opening shipping packaging & put chocolates in cold place. There was so much packaging on the chocolates themselves that I couldn't check their status until my husband opened them for Father's Day. All the hefeweizen chocolates in the Craft Brewers Collection were melted beyond recognition. The other 3 flavors were in tact, although the lids on the Rogues were slightly melted. We dug out the melted Hefeweizen though & they tasted great. My daughters & I were disappointed that for the money spent, 25% of the chocolates were ruined.

I ordered a couple of different types of chocolates for my husbands birthday of which he enjoyed every single one.

My husband and I are huge craft beer fans and we loved the chocolates. Ironically, we dont like stouts or porters much in beer, but it was our favorite flavor in the chocolate.
Apr 6, 2016 | By Mary Ellen leconte
Chocolates are great! Love the presentation- how creative! We had beer for each brewery when we were in Portland, so it was a treat to taste the chocolate.
We thought it was a fun idea
Apr 3, 2016 | By Patricia Hollister
We sent this as a gift. Last we heard, our family members still had not opened. I honestly thought this would be a fun treat for them, but it apparently wasn't received with enthusiasm. That isn't your fault, however. Your emails look terrific. Next time we will try it instead of giving it to them. Ive heard great things about your chocolate and my rating is based on that. Haven't tried it myself--yet!

Excellent serice and product. Will definitely order again.

12-pc Oregon Craft Brewers Truffle Collection Is Amazing
Feb 25, 2016 | By Elizabeth Kelly
We ordered the 12-pc Oregon Craft Brewers Truffle Collection for Valentine's Day and thoroughly enjoyed it. The chocolate is a wonderful marriage of fine chocolate and craft beer flavors. For example, the hops note on the Full Sail chocolate shone through. Loved it and am looking forward to ordering again!

My wife and I both enjoy craft beers and when I found your collection it screamed perfect for valentines. Thankfully she shared

My boyfriend loved this gift. He is such a beer geek as he lovingly calls himself. He even checked these in on 'Untapped'! Great tasting and unique design. Thanks for such a great idea for him!
Feb 22, 2016 | By Kate Nelson
Oh man this is a delicious box of goodness! My dad bought these for my husband for Christmas and we tried them recently. Very chocolatey and flavorful. I normally am not a huge Moonstruck fan but these really hit the mark.
Love the beer chocolate

I got the beer chocolate for a valentine's gift. It was a fun unique way to play with the chocolate gifting concept and he loved them!

Fantastic Moonstruck chocolate with a hint of iconic Oregon brews. What more could any true Oregonian ask for? Absolutely wonderful!

I purchased these truffles for a New Years party. They were the big hit. everyone loved the Oregon Brewery and Distillery selections. Found them unique, fresh and scrumptious. Unfortunately I was criticized for not buying more.
Jan 10, 2016 | By Ashley
Received order very fast even though it was only a couple weeks before Christmas. Product exceeded expectations taste wise :) Fresh, packaging was great, very much enjoyed by gift recipients who lived in Alabama and never heard of Moonstruck before :)

Even the women loved these. Really good flavor pairings. No one thought they would be good, but everyone loved them, especially the ones with the W on the "lid".
Portland Beer Chocolates
Jan 6, 2016 | By Kristy Baumgartner
My father sent me a box of the Portland Craft Beer Chocolates and they were delicious. A little broken upon arrival, but mostly intact. The Rogue and Deschutes were darker beers that are inherently a bit chocolatey, but the other two were lighter and definitely different!

This was for my son who likes to brew his own beer. It was an immediate hit. Ate his first piece at 9:30am and was very surprised how good it was. He's planning as a gift for friends.

I sent these chocolates to my cousin, who moved out of state. They arrived quickly and she loved them! I was excited to send her a little taste of her home state for Christmas. I did not taste them personally, but I have never found a Moonstruck chocolate that wasn't first rate.

I got these for my husband. They are beautifully crafted and smell wonderful. I cant wait to dig in.
The best of both worlds ??
Nov 6, 2015 | By Debbi J
I purchased these for my husband -- he's lover of fine chocolates and microbrews, so I thought 'what could be better?' He said these were some of the best truffles he's ever had -- these little gems were DEFINITELY worth the wait, and I have already placed a repeat order for his Christmas stocking !! Do NOT hesitate to try these -- they were a serious hit for my resident chocolate connoisseur !!
Sent an email when I received my order

This is the first time this has happened. My Fall Collection box was all melted together, one side of my Brewers truffles were melted and the chocolate bar was fine. I would really like to have another fall collection box cause I didn't get to taste them. The cold pack in my box looked like it was stuck in another bag and it wasn't cold at all and looked like it leaked into the bag it was out in. Just let me know something please.
Sep 27, 2015 | By Cheryl
The truffles I purchased are a gift, so I can't comment on how delicious they will be. However, I was extremely pleased with the care taken in shipping the chocolates. The box was wrapped well, in plastic, with dry ice nestled all about and that was in a stryofoam mini cooler, which then was in the cardboard box. Wow, the truffles arrived in perfect condition and I'm anxious to give them to my hubby.
Sep 27, 2015 | By Patricia Sebreny
The chocolates for a special celebration. They were wonderful. I am giving the Oregon Brewers Collection to a friend, for a party that is coming up, so I cant comment on this item at this time.
