UnTapped Happy Hour #8 - Rogue Ales Brewmaster Joel & Rogue Spirits Head Distiller, Jake!
"To constantly innovate is a part of who we are as Rogues - and to always be taking a risk on that wild idea. We were in a product innovation meeting and I literally said - that is the stupidest idea I've ever heard. I want to try it right now" - Jake Holshue, Head Distiller and official Level 11 Spirit Wizard at Rogue Spirits. 🤩
Joel and Jake led us through the Dead Guy Trio, starting off with a classic: Dead Guy Ale, followed by the more recently invented Dead Guy Whiskey and a tasty hybrid of the two: Dead'n'Dead, which is Dead Guy Ale aged in Dead Guy Whiskey barrels. #yum
Joel took us through how this beer changes through the barrelling process, and Jake has some wicked recommendations for craft spirit cities and countries to check out if you are digging in to that scene.
Coming up in 2021:
Colossal Claude new Imperial IPA!
Strata hops coming out of the farms, looking forward to putting those in to the 2021 beers
The Rogue Cooperage (named Rolling Thunder) Stouted Whiskey is moving from 97 proof to cask strength (116 - 118 proof depending on the barrel)
Thirsty to grab the Dead Guy Trio at a store near you? We got you.
