Your week in beer: Craft beer events for October 16-22

Rogue Boss Brett Joyce
Rogue boss Brett Joyce with a glass of The Beard Beer, fermented, it’s said, with yeast cultured from Rogue brewmaster John Maier’s beard. I had a glass yesterday and it’s not as weird as all that, though the big media love the idea, says Joyce: The Beard Beer was recently featured in the pages of the Wall Street Journal and Jimmy Fallon plans to serve it to an as-yet unnamed guest on his TV show next week…the beer I really liked was Rogue’s new 8-hop IPA, which is a truly big and tasty beer and one of a new family of IPAs that includes 4-hop, 5-hop, 6-hop, 7-hop and 8-hop IPA. You can try 7-hop IPA at the Farm-to-Glass beer fest Wednesday, by the way… (FoystoFoto)
