Rogue Ales Dedicates February to the Stout

roguevalentines_editedRogue 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:

  • Chocolate Stout – Ebony in color with a rich creamy head. An earthy flavor of oats and hops that gives way to a rich chocolate truffle finish.

All of the Stouts mentioned above are widely available now at craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida and throughout the rest of Rogue’s vast distribution area.  If you find yourself enjoying a tasty Stout from Rogue Ales during the month of February, the brewery suggests that you document your experience on Instagram or Twitter using the hashtag #ShoutOutToStouts for a chance “to win Rogueish stuff.”  Drink awesome Stouts and possibly win some cool schwag in the process?  You certainly cannot go wrong with that combo. Join Rogue Ales and get your Stout on, folks. Prost!



Rogue Ales Plans to Release Hazelutely Choctabulous, Candy Bar in a Bottle

hazelutely-roguedotcomRogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) recently hit social media with the news that their fan-favorite blend lovingly known as Hazelutely Choctabulous will soon be released in bottles and on draft.

Hazelutely Choctabulous, an innocent idea dreamed up by brewery super-fans to mix two long-standing and respected brews from Rogue Ales, is a secret that can no longer be contained.  This 60/40 blend of Hazelnut Brown Nectar and Rogue Chocolate Stout has reached such a level of popularity that the brewery has decided to officially release it as a stand-alone offering in bottles and on draft.  For the full story on the beverage also known as “Candy Bar in a Bottle,” here is the full brewery description:

For years, our hardest core local fans have been drinking a blend of Chocolate Stout and Hazelnut Brown Nectar, they say it tastes like a chocolate candy bar.  We have taken these two absolutely fabulous beers and fused them together to create Hazelutely Choctabulous, dark and decadent with a rich nutty flavor up front followed by a chocolate truffle finish.  We’re thrilled to share our little secret with the world.

Rogue Ales has hinted that Hazelutely Choctabulous will be arriving soon, but an official release date has yet to be set (will update once we have that info) in January of 2017.  What is confirmed is that this offering will be available in 22 oz. bottles and on draft at fine beer bars, restaurants and retailers in Alabama, Florida and throughout the brewery’s expansive distribution area.  The idea of a “Candy Bar in a Bottle” is sure to get the attention of many beer lovers out there, so stay vigilant and snag your bottle or pour when you see it.  Prost!
