Rogue: More Than Ale


The beginning for Rogue was in 1988 in Ashland Oregon on the beautiful Lithia Creek as a Brewpub that sat sixty people with the brewery located in the basement below. In less than a year the team realized another location was needed and moved the fledgling business to Newport where it still resides. Along with the award-winning American Amber Ale and Brutal Bitter, Rogue also produces a line of unique spirits. Here are four cocktail creations made with Rogue Spirits to inspire your New Years celebrations.

    I did not even know Rogue made spirits. Learn something new every day!

    Those are some regal looking bottles

  3. JJ Bagley | Wednesday, December 31, 2008

    Pretty cool, this was also the first Rum distillery in the state of Oregon.

  4. Jeff | Wednesday, December 31, 2008

    I’d like to try their spiced rum.

    I am always intrigued by presentation. They have an appealing
    bottle. I would definitely give Rogue a try.

    I’v always been a sucker for dark rum and this is a righteous time to try the Rogue.
    Thanks for turning me on to it. Once tasted, I will report back with what I am sure will be “high” praise.

    will have to put this on my list for 2009.

    methinks Brutal Bitter has my name all over it.

    thanks for the blog.

    Their hazelnut rum is very tasty. Sip it by itself as you bask in the glow of the fireplace (or huddle around the spaceheater with a blanket over your head).

    The spruce gin is really interesting. It works. I’ve only tried it neat, but I don’t see why it wouldn’t play well with tonic and lime.

    About a month ago they bought the pub/micro-micro-brewery down the street from me in Portland, The Green Dragon. I’m not sure what they’re up to, but they must be doing well.

  9. Big Toe | Monday, January 5, 2009

    I hope I can find this here in Oklahoma. I am always looking for something new to try. I think a bottle of the gin is calling my name.

  10. Thirsty In Florida | Wednesday, April 29, 2009

    Sounds like good rum. Can someone please tell me where to I may find some in South Florida?

  11. JJ Bagley | Wednesday, April 29, 2009

    I looked at the website to see if they had a locator guide, but no luck. Your best bet may be to order from the internet. Rogue has a pretty big beer following but I think their spirits operation is a bit smaller.
