Rogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) recently announced that Fresh Roast Ale has officially returned to shelves and taps for a limited time.
To create Fresh Roast Ale, the brewers at Rogue Ales “break from the norm” by “roasting Rogue Farms-grown barley in-house with a vintage coffee roaster.” The freshly roasted barley then makes a short, 273-step journey to the brew kettle to create a “signature taste unlike any other beer on the market.” Although no coffee was incorporated into the recipe for Fresh Roast Ale (5.7% ABV), that “signature taste” translates as nothing but “robust, roasted coffee” goodness.
“We wanted to challenge ourselves to do something unique,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce. “Fresh Roast highlights every step of the brewing process. We took our Rogue Farms estate-grown barley, hand-roasted it, and walked 53 seconds to the brew kettle to capture the freshest taste of roasted barley.”
Fresh Roast Ale is out now and will be available through February of 2018. You can find this Limited Release available in 6-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of Rogue Ale’s national distribution footprint. Prost!
