365 Bottles of Beer: Oct 12th is Rogue Chocoate Stout Day

10-12-10 is Rogue Chocolate Stout Day according to the 365 Bottles of Beer Calendar from Workman Press!

A few of my favorite recipes include Bruce Aidell's cake in Bon Appetit Oct 2009 issue...or The Nibbler's recipe for a Chocolate Stout Bundt Cake... or Bananas Foster with Rogue Chocolate Stout... or Cupcake Villians Devilish creations... For me, the icing on any of these cakes is the Gelato from CapoGiro, made 2 years in a row for Philly Beer Week... and the best of all, pour this elixir into a glass and enjoying it. A hugh shout out all of you who brew, bottle, ship, distribute, sell and enjoy this delicious & nutritious (imho) beer! As Rogue Brewmaster John "more hops" Maier says, Prost! I say Gracias, Danka, Thank You and Enjoy!
