Simon Dunn teams up with M&S and Robinson's Brewery to launch chocolate flavoured beer

Simon Dunn and Robinson's chocolate beer

Innovative chocolatier Simon Dunn has teamed up with retail giant M&S and local Stockport brewer Frederic Robsinson to create a chocolate flavoured beer.

Simon came up with the idea and approached Robinson's who thought it was a great opportunity. Robinson's head brewer and Simon collaborated to produce the recipe which is based on an ale dating back to 1899.

It's a first for Robinson's and Simon Dunn, but if sales of Cheshire Chocolate Porter continue to grow it might not be the last... M&S launched their speciality beer range nationally and sales have gone well.
