Rogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) has officially launched their “Shout Out to Stouts” campaign, a month-long celebration of the Stout beer style.
Since February prominently features Valentine’s Day at its center, it is highly likely that we will find ourselves seeking out decadent, pleasurable indulgences at some point this month. This being the case, nothing embodies indulgence more in the world of craft beer than the endless satisfaction found in a rich, luscious Stout. No one knows this more than the folks at Rogue Ales, and they have seized this moment to give a Shout Out to Stouts. To properly execute this tribute, Rogue will be featuring these three beloved Stouts all month long:
