Their beers are decent. Not $6/22oz great . . but not bad either. I think their hazelnut brown is pretty tasty. There's a place near me that fills growlers for $9.

I think the one great contribution that Rogue has made to the beer world is their Pacman yeast. That stuff is wild. The last time I used it I got 84% attenuation, which means that you can use it to brew extra strong ales that aren't disgustingly sweet or that don't need a ton of hops to keep balanced. I want to be able to be able to drink medium hopped 8% beers that don't taste super sweet.

GRCooper: Craft brewers now seem to be putting out two types of brew - something that tastes like I'm chewing on a mouthfull of hops or "stouts" that taste like a liquified candy bar.

Bleh

Keep your umpteenth Dark Lord remake or IPA made with yoir clever hops blend and give me a good pilsener


Sickly sweet (and/or burned) malt syrup is the other end of the "I Don't Know What the Fark I'm Doing" school of brewing. Good beer is a matter of balance. A porter with correctly roasted malt supported by a decent hop background is a thing of beauty and wonder, but it takes work to get it right.

Slu: Professor Science: ...award-winning brewmaster John "More Hops" Maier."

So this is the asshole I can blame for the shelves being filled with beer that tastes like grapefruit peel and grass clippings gently moistened with fermented malt?

Thank you! Sometimes I feel like the only one who dislikes the extreme hoppiness of everything these days.


You're not. Craft brewers now seem to be putting out two types of brew - something that tastes like I'm chewing on a mouthfull of hops or "stouts" that taste like a liquified candy bar.

IntertubeUser: I know how science works, yet this still frightens me.

Also, my girl has a yeast infection. Could she be an aspiring brewmaster?


Interestingly, the ancient Egyptians, credited with the creation of mead as a beverage, used just this method of obtaining yeast. It eventually became a highly ritualized process in which the eldest daughter in the household (everyone that could afford to made their own mead) sat in the tub containing the honey and water mixture in order to provide the yeast for fermentation. This included even the royal families, although anyone caught trying to sneak a peak at pharoah's daughter or attempting to purloin any of the beverage she created were put to death. In fact, special slaves, usually from a lesser noble household, were used to clean the tub between uses so that the process was kept strictly controlled.

Tad_Waxpole: Rogue is the worst craft brewery in America.
In fact, i'd call them the "Nickleback of craft beer".

It was started by a former Nike executive as a way to simply cash-in on the microbrew boom rather than pour their passion into making great beer.

They make a medicore product, which they sell for far more than their craft competitors as a way to position themselves as some kind of elite brand, and treat their employees poorly.

And then they created this abomination:

No, it isn't good. The name sounds delicious, but it is an awful, phony & smoky mess.


Basically I came in here to say this. They are utter ass. I'd rather drink a god damn Miller before I had one of their phoney "craft beers".
