Beard Beer is brewed with a yeast created from Brewmaster John Maier's Beard. No Need to freak out, Brewers have used wild yeasts in beer making for centuries. John has had the same Old Growth Beard since 1983 and for over 15,000 brews, so it is no great suprise that a natural yeast ideal for brewing was discovered in his beard.
Rogue Ales grew from a brewpub along Ashland, Oregon’s Lithia Creek in 1988 to a small revolution, expressing itself through handcrafted ales, porters, stouts, and lagers. The name Rogue, and the spirit of the brand, suggests doing things differently, and a desire and a willingness to change the status quo. Innovative in its makeup and brewing, each Rogue beverage is crafted to give it unique character.
