Stone Double Bastard Ale

Double Bastard Ale
Brewer’s Description:
Double Bastard Ale

This is one lacerative muther of an ale. It is unequivocally certain that your feeble palate is grossly inadequate and thus undeserving of this liquid glory…and those around you would have little desire to listen to your resultant whimpering. Instead, you slackjawed gaping gobemouche, slink away to that pedestrian product that lures agog the great unwashed with the shiny happy imagery of its silly broadcast propaganda. You know, the one that offers no challenge, yet works very, very hard to imbue the foolhardy with the absurd notion that they are exercising ‘independent’ thought, or attempts to convey the perception it is in some way ‘authentic’ or ‘original.’ It’s that one that makes you feel safe and delectates you into basking in the warm, fuzzy, and befuddled glow of your own nescience. Why so many allow themselves to be led by the nose lacks plausible explanation. Perhaps you have been so lulled by the siren song of ignorance that you don’t even notice your white-knuckle grip on it. You feel bold and unique, but alas are nothing but sheep, willingly being herded to and fro. If you think you are being piqued in this text, it is nothing when compared to the insults we are all asked to swallow streaming forth from our televisions and computers. Truth be told, you are being coddled into believing you are special or unique by ethically challenged “pay no attention to the man behind the curtain” marketers who layer (upon layer) imagined attributes specifically engineered to lead you by the nose. Should you decide to abdicate your ability to make decisions for yourself, then you are perhaps deserving of the pabulum they serve. Double Bastard Ale calls out the garrulous caitiffs who perpetrate the aforementioned atrocities and demands retribution for their outrageously conniving, intentionally misleading, blatantly masturbatory and fallacious ad campaigns. We demand the unmitigated, transparent truth. We demand forthright honesty. We want justice! Call ‘em out and line ‘em up against the wall… NOW.

Rogue Dead Guy Ale w/ Glow in the Dark Bottle

Dead Guy is an Oregon brewed German-style Maibock made with Rogues proprietary “Pacman” ale yeast.  It is created from Northwest Harrington, Klages, Maier Munich and Carastan malts, along with Perle and Saaz Hops.

Dead Guy Ale pours into a glass with a nice hazy, deep golden honey color with a creamy head that dissipates into a thin band of bubbles. Its aroma is of sweet honey and malts with hints of citrus.

The flavor is reminiscent of honey graham crackers. It leads with toasted malt into a slight honey sweetness and complimented by a light citrus hop bitterness.

When drinking, the Dead Guy is very smooth and a bit creamy. It almost has the feel of drinking a stout but not as heavy.

Basically, Rogue’s Dead Guy Ale is smooth, malty beer that’s not too sweet nor overly hoppy. Overall, it’s a well balanced beer that’s just perfect for whatever the occasion.

For this Halloween, Rogue has made Dead Guy glow-in-the-dark bottles. We have these bad boys available in our Craft Beer Fridge in 22oz bottles for $8.99+tax.

Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold

Brewer’s Description:

Liquid Gold — Belgian Style Ale

Don’t let the golden color fool you — this isn’t your father’s lite beer! Brewed with imported German malts and US-grown hops, this beer is a full-flavored introduction to craft-brewed beer. We add the hops late in the boil, allowing you to enjoy the flavor and aroma of the hops without an aggressive bitterness.

SENSORY PROFILE
Aromas of orange, spice, and green grass. Clean malt-dominated flavor, with a subdued bitterness playing in the background of the aromas of this beer.

FOOD PAIRING
A great match with fish and chicken, both sautéed and grilled, especially with citrus and herbs preparations. Shellfish steamed in Liquid Gold is a match made in beer heaven.
Hops: Crystal, Sterling, Cascade.
Malts: German Pilsner and Vienna.
IBU: 15
ABV: NA
OG: 15.5
Type of Glass: Other
