A new space to enjoy this summer in Barossa


A unique and fresh flavour sensation

Prancing Pony to join Barossa Valley Chocolate Company with a pop-up venue for a fun filled Chocolate - Beer Collaboration

The Barossa Valley Chocolate Company and Prancing Pony Brewery have joined forces to bring the Pony Stable to Barossa. From December 9, 2023 through to the end of Easter 2024, the Eastern Lawns of Barossa Valley Chocolate Company will be home to the Pony Stable, an outdoor space where people can enjoy views, Prancing Pony Brewery beers, a seasonal menu from Barossa Valley Chocolate Company’s Benni’s Café and even outdoor games in a family-friendly setting.

Both iconic South Australian businesses in their own right, with many accolades shared between them, they were a natural fit to match the flavoursome Pony beers with the delicious hand-crafted Barossa Valley Chocolate Company chocolates.

Prancing Pony Brewery’s CEO and Co-Founder Corinna Steeb, a Medical Scientist, loves to combine chocolate flavours with beer. “It is scientifically proven that the irresistible melt-in-the-mouth sensation of chocolate is created by a coating of the mouth which forms the perfect background to enhance the beer flavours,” Corinna says.

“When you eat the delicate Barossa Valley Chocolate Company’s Simply the Zest White Chocolate Praline and then sip on our Pale Ale, the fruity hoppy flavours are amplified,” explains Corinna, “or when you pair our Black Ale with the Golden Café Milk Chocolate Praline, the coffee flavours in the beer are lifted and you taste roasted malts and a slight bitterness comes through. I call it the one plus one equals three flavour experience.”

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Prancing Pony Brewery, not only with the Pony Stable, but also a brand-new beer and chocolate tasting experience”

- Kate McClure, General Manger Barossa Valley Chocolate Company

With more than 250 hand crafted chocolates, a Gelati Bar with 17 house-made gelati, 100 seat onsite café, Vineyard Road cellar door with tastings and experiences, outdoor games, sprawling lawns and a generous deck overlooking the lake, Barossa Valley Chocolate Company already provides a unique experience in the Barossa.

“We are thrilled to collaborate with Prancing Pony Brewery, not only with the Pony Stable, but also a brand-new beer and chocolate tasting experience,” says Kate McClure, General Manger BVCC.

“We have several special tastings on our menu, but this one is truly unique. Five world class beers paired with five of our hand-crafted chocolates. Each pairing showcases incredible flavours from both the chocolate and the beer. It’s a “must try” experience.”

The Choc + Bier Tasting Experience is available from December 9, 2023 and bookings are essential.
