Premier Pour of Rogue "21"

Portland, OR, June 21, 2010 — Rogue Brewmaster John Maier has brewed 21 different beers for the 21 years of the Oregon Brewers Fest.  To honor the OBF and John’s “21er”, John brewed a one-time batch of an Olde Ale, called 21 Ale.

21 Ale will be available in black ceramic 750ml bottles in limited quantities and 21 kegs of 21 Ale will be celebrated by 21 of the Rogue Nation’s most loyal, long time beer emporiums across the country.

To kick off 21 Ale, a premier pour event will be held at the Horse Brass Pub in Portland on July 21st.

The list of beers John has made for OBF is below, although there are two “mystery” years that we cannot remember.  The Rogue Nation Historian is offering 4 bottles of 21 Ale and 427 Hopoes (the official currency of the Rogue Nation) to anyone that can tell us which beers we poured at OBF in 1992 and 1993.

21 Ale is dedicated to Art Larrance and Teddy Peetz, the founders of the Oregon Brewers Festival.

21 Ale is brewed with 14 ingredients: 2 Row, Briess Amber, C-40, Wyermann Carafa & Rogue Farms RiskTM Malt; Willamette, US Goldings & Rogue Farms Revolution Hops; Simpsons Golden Naked Oats; Franco-Belges Carawheat; Molasses, Brewer’s Licorice, Wyeast Old Ale Blend Yeast & Free Range Coastal Water.

Rogue remains committed to saving the terroir of Oregon hops and barley, one acre at a time, by growing our own.
