Rogue Ales: Hops, Barley, Beer and Spirits.

Rogue Ales master brewer John Maier, founder Jack Joyce, and John Young from the newest Rogue outpost each join us in this show.

John Maier tells us about the latest in his John’s Locker Stock series – Love and Hoppiness. This is a lagered strong ale that has sentimental roots and John tells of its evolution and annual occasion.

Jack Joyce discusses how Rogue Hop Farmthe hops and barley shortages has effected the industry as a whole, changing the way breweries plan and collaborate. He introduces no less than 7 new products that will begin appearing in 2008. Rogue will begin joining the “wood” styles of beer, with a twist as only Rogue can.

Shortly after these interviews were taken Rogue revealed that they’re growing their own hops in a heritage farm near Independence, Oregon. More details are posted on the Craft Brew Cast Blog page.

Rogue has opened an outpost inside the concourse at the Portland International Airport! So you can now take great food with you on your flight. I talked with John and was surprised to learn of another service that they provide travelers. Ill have to let hear him tell it.

Rogue's new 100bbl system I wrap the show up with a song called “Beer Toast” by Bobby Chitwood. He’s got some nice slide guitar and fiddle going, and yuks it up with a beery-country twang.

As always, a big thank you to Rolling Boil Blues Band for letting me use their music with our intro. Check their website for upcoming concert dates.
