Rogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) recently announced that they have released Promise Gone Aw-Rye IPA as a new specialty offering.
Each year, a special one-time only beer is brewed up by Brewmaster John Maier and given as a gift to all Rogue employees for the holidays. The story is supposed to end there for these exclusive beers, but last year’s creation of a Red Rye India Pale Ale was such a hit with members of the Rogue Ales family that they decided it just had to be shared with all fans of craft beer and the brewery. Dubbed Promise Gone Aw-Rye, this 7.5% ABV offering is brewed with Dream Rye grown at Rogue Farms to allow the beer to lead with a spicy character. Rogue Farms-grown hops and a full malt body provide the rye with balance and support to bring this this truly special Rye IPA together.
“Not only did it take a lot of convincing for John to finally agree to break his promise and brew more of his red rye IPA,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce, “but it’s taken a lot of dare, risk and dream to grow our own rye.”
Promise Gone Aw-Rye IPA is now available for a limited time on draft and in 22 oz. bombers. Look for this brew at craft beer-friendly establishments in Alabama, Florida and throughout Rogue’s distribution area. Prost!
