Earlier this year, we attended the Copenhagen Beer Celebration—which, as the name suggests, was held in Boston. The festival, which was put on by Mikkeller, was a venerable who’s who of breweries. Of all the beers we tasted that evening, the one that stood out the most was Imperial German Chocolate Cupcake Stout from a local 2-year-old Tampa-based brewery called Angry Chair. That discovery led us to seek out other Angry Chair brews. Guess what? They’ve all been fantastic. What you really want to try from them are their dark beers—stouts, porters, barleywines, and the like. They have a way of making flavors pop, as demonstrated by the aforementioned glass of German chocolate cake, their French Toast Imperial Porter, and other exceptional brews.
