FemALEists' Socola Chocolatier and Rogue Ales Tasting for Women Only on June 27

Tiila of FemALEist hosts Women Who Like Beer tasting events in the Bay Area. I asked her to consider an event at Rogue Ales Public House in North Beach, and to pair the beers from Rogue with the truffles made by Oakland based Socola Chocolatier. Socola is owned and operated by two sisters, Wendy and Susan Lieu who have experimented using Rogue Ales in their truffles. The ladies did some preliminary tastings and have a program set for Sunday June 27th from 2-4pm at Rogue's SFO Public House featuring 8 truffles paired with 8 beers for $32. Reservations can be made on
