Known for its line of organic salted dark chocolate bars, Salazon incorporated actual
ingredients from the beer into the chocolate, including German Nobel hops, our custom

beer,” Pete Truby, founder of Salazon Chocolate Co. said. “And we couldn’t be more
thrilled to partner with one of the leaders in creative craft brewing, Flying Dog, which is
also based in Maryland.”
