Valentine's Day and Every Day Gift Ideas for the special rogue in your life

Valentine's Day is a mere 24 hours long -- a single day to share a special gift is 364 days too short, imho. Here are a few of my favorite things to share and enjoy, every day, and on Valentine's Day, with that special rogue in your life.

Garden of Holly's Rogue Chocolate Stout Soap. It looks good enough to eat... like a big fat chocolate stout brownie, except its a bar of soap, made with beer!

How about something edible that pairs beautifully with a bottle of Rogue Chocolate Stout ~
Rogue Creamery Chocolate Stout Cheddar ~ available online and from selected retailers (including the Rogue Ales Pubs), or in a The Lodge gift package from Rogue Creamery via mail order. This cheddar cheese is made with Rogue Chocolate Stout and won 2nd place ribbon at the 2008 and 2009 American Cheese Society competition!

Liquid Gratitude offers a bottle of Rogue Chocolate Stout with a Rogue pint glass filled with Wildflower Cookie Co's chocolate shortbread cookies, available via mail order.

Sometimes its better to offer a suggestion from someone else.. . here is what was posted on the blog
Where and Back Again, Beer my Valentine... "For my money however, Rogue's award-winning chocolate stout—silky, sweet, and full-bodied—has a slight edge. Like your favorite candy bar, it's irresistible. A couple of glasses of this kind of liquid happiness and neither you nor your sweetheart will care how many blizzards hit the East Coast this winter. " Thank you Benjamin!

If the snow drives you to drink, or you need a beer cocktail after shoveling, or better yet, if you need a good excuse to make your favorite Rogue a special cocktail, try the Rogue Diplomat Gone Rogue which combines Rogue Chocolate Stout with Rogue Spirits Hazelnut Rum and Pedro Ximenez Sherry!
