In 1998 Rogue Brewmaster John Maier created an Irish style lager that would float Guinness. It took four batches to get it just right. John used acidulated malts imported from Europe that resulted in a crisp, apple flavor profile. The bottle label displays a famous Irish Flutist.
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.
