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!
Rogue Ales (Newport, Oregon) recently announced that it will introduce Straight Outta Newport in January as a new Limited Release offering.
Inspired to brew a beer that embodies the spirit of the Oregon Coast, the brewers at Rogue Ales developed Straight Outta Newport to be a “uniquely West Coast” style India Pale Ale featuring Citra, Mosaic and Comet hops. Clocking in at 8.7% ABV and 73 IBUs, Straight Outta Newport supplies “a bold and flavorful profile, bursting with aromas of grapefruit, tangerine and orange, fruity hop notes and a juicy finish.”
“We’re Oregon Coast through and through,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce. “We wanted to pay homage to our hometown with a world-class beer that dared to push the limits.”
Straight Outta Newport will officially arrive in January 2018 with plans to hang around throughout that month. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 16 oz. cans and on draft at select locations found within Rogue’s distribution area. Prost!
