Snapshot of the Day: New Belgium Cocoa Mole Ale at Khoury's Fine Wine & Spirits

This little glass of goodness is New Belgium's Cocoa Mole Ale, made with cocoa and spices, including ancho, guajillo, and chipotle peppers. It's a perfect combination of sweetness and bite, and it's utterly refreshing.

I downed 2 glasses of this deliciousness at tonight's weekly beer-tasting at Khoury's Fine Wine & Spirits, which is perhaps the best wine & beer shop in all of Las Vegas.

Located at 9915 S. Eastern Avenue, near Eastern & St. Rose Parkway, this shop boasts an impressive selection, an extremely knowledgeable staff, and super-friendly service. And, on Wednesdays & Thursdays, they host wonderful tastings that are often accompanied by a food truck or some sort of catering.

I try to make it to as many of these tastings as possible, and tonight's offerings were well worth the trip. Besides New Belgium's Cocoa Mole Ale, tonight's tasting also featured food from Charlie's Lunch, a relatively new truck on the Las Vegas scene that offers a nice selection of paninis, burgers, and salads.

I paired New Belgium's Cocoa Mole Ale with a tasty fried eggplant panini. Normally, I would never order something made with eggplant, but Brad from Charlie's Lunch talked me into being a little adventurous, and it really paid off.

Hopefully, I'll see you at Khoury's Fine Wine & Spirits one of these Wednesday or Thursday nights. If so, we'll raise a glass together and enjoy some great food. What could be better?
