Rogue Beers & Spirits not to be missed:
Big Ass Barrel - An American Strong Ale brewed in a barrel for 60 days.
Beard Beer - This beer was just released this week and is going fast! Brewed from a yeast from a brewers beard, this light beer is a popular favorite.
Pink Spruce Gin - Pink Spruce Gin, with a slightly more robust body and mouthfeel, highlights the best of Spruce Gin’s already fruity esters and adds smooth, yet restrained flavors of vanilla, oak and tannins.
Hazelnut Spice Rum - Hazelnut Spiced Rum instantly reveals sweet aromas of toasted hazelnut and brown sugar. Medium-bodied, a sweet blend of vanilla, cinnamon and clove set the stage for an oaky, vanilla and bourbon-like finish.
Dead Guy Whiskey - Dead Guy Whiskey has a fresh orange citrus aroma with a delicately sweet, rich malt complex. Medium-bodied, flavors of oak and honey give way to a clean vanilla finish.
Oregon Single Malt Whiskey - Opens with an attractive aroma of floral honey, peach and mango. Medium-to-full bodied, the aromas slowly transition to lush, ripe fruit and brown spice.
