Rogue Farms Fresh Roast
Brewer: Rogue Ales & Spirits
This beer is the fresh-hop equivalent for malty beers. While IPAs get a blast of fresh-from-the-vine hops at harvest time, this brown ale gets fresh-from-the-roaster barley. This is possible thanks to Rogue's own farms and malting house — a mere 300 feet from the brewery. The result is a huge nutty cocoa and coffee bean aroma, followed by a smooth roasted flavor and a spicy, earthy finish.
