Named in honor of the founder of Rogue Ales & Spirits, the Jack Joyce Scholarship Fund was established in 2014 to help “students at Oregon State University’s Fermentation Sciences program pay for their education.” The fund has since awarded $185,000 to 15 recipients. When one of the first recipients was asked to share a few words about the impact of the scholarship, “it was disclosed that, in addition to helping pay for books and tuition, the winner had taken a portion of the scholarship proceeds to buy a hot tub.” With that honest response, the folks at Rogue Ales found the inspiration to create Hot Tub Scholarship Lager.
Honest, straight-forward and an homage to a classic beer style, Hot Tub Scholarship Lager arrives as Rogue’s take on a refreshing German-style Helles Lager. Since this beer has been brewed for a great cause, “Rogue Ales will donate 10% of Hot Tub Scholarship Lager sales to the Jack Joyce Scholarship Fund.”
“We’re proud to help the next generation of brewers and distillers get a chance to make their dreams come true,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce.
Hot Tub Scholarship Lager is available now and will be hanging around through the end of September. You can expect to find this offering available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans at craft beer retailers located in Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of Rogue’s nationwide distribution area. Be sure to look for this one while on your next beer run so that you can help another college student reach his or her dreams . . . of one day owning a hot tub. Prost!
