The latest canned beer to be released from Rogue Ales & Spirits is its Hot Tub Scholarship Lager. This beer has been on tap at Rogue during the past but until recently was never packaged in 12 oz. cans.
Hot Tub Scholarship Lager is a refreshing German-style helles lager that is true to style with its nice malt profile and slight sweet finish. This is the perfect beer for the warmer months and is supporting a great cause. Rogue Ales will donate 10% of Hot Tub Scholarship Lager sales to the Jack Joyce Scholarship Fund, established in honor of the founder of Rogue Ales & Spirits, to further the education of future fermenters at Oregon State University.
“We’re proud to help the next generation of brewers and distillers get a chance to make their dreams come true,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce in a statement.
Established in 2014, the Jack Joyce Scholarship has awarded $185,000 to 15 recipients. The fund helps students at Oregon State University’s Fermentation Sciences program pay for their education. When one of the first recipients was asked to share a few words about what the scholarship meant to them, it was disclosed that, in addition to helping pay for books and tuition, the winner had taken a portion of the scholarship proceeds to buy a hot tub. Inspired by the common passion of both Jack Joyce and this honest student, Hot Tub Scholarship Lager was created.
Hot Tub Scholarship Lager is available now through the end of September in 12oz. six pack cans nationwide and at Rogue Ales Pubs. Find Hot Tub Scholarship Lager by using Rogue’s Beer Finder. For more information visit Rogue.com.
About the Jack Joyce Scholarship The Jack Joyce Scholarship Award was created in 2014 by Columbia Distributing and Rogue Ales in honor of visionary Jack Joyce for his legacy in the Oregon community and his founding of Rogue Brewery in 1988. Jack’s vision, creativity and innovation led Rogue to take daring risks that have created one of the most successful breweries and distillers in the nation. Each year students enrolled in Oregon State University’s Fermentation Science program can apply for scholarship funds.
