Rogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) has come forward this week to unveil a 2018 Product Calendar boasting 13 Year-Round offerings, 9 Seasonals, and 10 Special Releases.
It appears that beer calendar season has caught a second wind as we kick off the week with a look at Rogue Ale’s 2018 Product Calendar. The brewery’s full calendar is available below, but let’s go over a few highlights real quick.
- Rogue will be rockin’ a baker’s dozen of Year-Round offerings in 2018. This includes old favorites such as Dead Guy Ale, Hazelnut Brown Nectar, Shakespeare Stout, Chocolate Stout (wearing some new label artwork), and a plethora of IPA options spanning from 4 Hop IPA to 8 Hop IPA.
- The Seasonal lineup will be sporting a few new brews: Yellow Snow Pilsner (January, November – December), Cold Brew 2.0 Blonde Ale (February – June), Marionberry Sour (July – October), and a “Top Secret” beer coming in July.
- You will notice that the Special Release series will also be seeing a few new beers in 2018. These limited releases include Straight Outta Newport (January), Kulture Clash (April – June), 10 Hop IPA (May), and the newly reformulated Santa’s Private Reserve (November – December).
- Rolling Thunder Imperial Stout (2018) will also return in February as a Specialty Release, but this year it will be available in 16.9 oz. bottles instead of 1L swing-tops.
That should cover most of the new releases, but there are still quite few beers left for you to find on the calendar below. Give it a good look and settle in for another tasty year of beer from Rogue Ales in 2018. Prost!
