Rogue Chocolate Stout blogged at San Francisco Fancy Food

Fancy Food Show in San Francisco just wrapped up, but even before the show ended I got blogged.

I helped Rogue Creamery in their booth and introduced the folks from  
to Rogue Ales and the Chocolate Stout Cheddar and Morimoto Soba Ale Cheddar made by Rogue Creamery.

Sheana Davis of Epicurean Connection hosted an openhouse Monday evening at the Rogue Ales House in North Beach which Brewed for Thought reviewed. Guests included brewers, cheese makers, wine makers, chefs, press, picklers makers, tea importers/purveyors, kobe breeders, retailers, and many other food service industry allies. Thanks to everyone who came for sharing in the celebration!

Chocolate Stout winter warmer... neat!

Goodbye 2008... what a year, and its over.
Hello 2009...change is in the wind, bring it on!

A few words of wisdom for 2009 from the City of Brotherly Love ~ how to enjoy the long, dark and cold days of winter ~

"On frosty nights when darkness comes to fast, there's nothing like a rich, inky stout to warm you. The dead of January is prime time for one of America's most revered beers, Chocolate Stout from Rogue Ales in Oregon.

Plush in the mouth, with a whisper of sweetness and a creamy froth, this black beauty is loaded with flavors of espresso and bread pudding.

Try it on tap at South Street's Ten Stone, Jose Pistola's on 15th or Ron's Original Bar and Grille in Exton.
