Beer Releases

Finale IPA & Big News!

Come join us this Wednesday, October 26, for our final release and tap-takeover at Rogue Eastside!

After almost 13 years and 500 batches, the Green Dragon Brewers’ final stammtisch and release party at Rogue Eastside Pub & Pilot Brewery will be this Wednesday at 5:30 pm, where we’ll release “Finale IPA” and a handful of other great beers we’ve been waiting to launch.

Rogue has decided to cease brewing operations at this location, and we hope you will join us for a final toast to say “Thanks!” to Rogue and for the release of Finale IPA, a nod to our first batch at Rogue: Finally IPA, brewed way back in 2009.

While this chapter may be ending, we have some very exciting things coming up to take the program to new territory (news to come!)

We hope to see you for this final stammtisch at Rogue Eastside!

Worn-out old Green Dragon t-shirts encouraged!

Cheers!

Fresh Hop Jörmungandr IPA

In Norse mythology, the Midgard (aka World) Serpent, named Jörmungandr, was the middle child of Loki & Angrdoða that Odin threw into the sea. It grew so large that it encircled the entire globe and grasped its own tail. When it releases its tail, Ragnarök (the war of the gods) will begin and Jörmungandr will face Thor and be destroyed before Thor himself dies.

This beer was made in honor of this epic tale. Generous amounts of locally sourced ingredients including, Bravo and Centennial hops, paired with all Mecca Grade specialty malts, make this a truly special PNW IPA. In this version, 19# of fresh Centennial from Crosby Hop farms were added to the whirlpool.

Skål!

ABV: 6.2%

IBU: 60

Mexican Lager

Inspired by the brewer’s from one continent and brewed by brewers on another, this Mexican Lager reflects that shared brewing history by bringing together two Green Dragon Brewers to create this refreshing and quaffable summer crusher. Made with pilsner malt and flaked corn, artfully complimented with subtle European hop varieties. Add a lime, if you’d like – no offense, it’s summertime. ¡Salud!

ABV: 5.1%

IBU: 18

Suggested Food Pairing: Rogue Hummus, Dead Guy Fish & Chips, Brewer’s Burger

Grisette

Grisette is a fairly obscure farmhouse style that evolved from the mining region in the Southwest of Belgium. Our interpretation consists primarily of Pilsner malt with a healthy portion of flaked wheat and rye gently hopped with Saaz and Comet for balance.

It’s a brilliant straw-colored beer with a persistently fluffy meringue-like head. Grisette presents itself with a sweet rustic grain aroma including notes of bubblegum, hay, and pepper. It finishes dry with lingering notes of white pepper and spicy hop character for perfect balance.

This is a superb summer crusher designed for warm days on a sunny patio!

IBUs: 32
SRM: 3.1
ABV: 5.3%

Suggested Food Pairings: Pub Pretzel, Northwest Garden Salad, Dead Guy Burger

Suggested Soundtrack: Cayucas – “Bigfoot”

Altbier (This is Portland, NOT Düsseldorf)

This intensely flavorful and bright copper ale incorporates Weyermann Barke Pilsner malt as its foundation and a touch of German crystal malt to produce deep rich malt aromas, fermented warm, like an ale, and then matured cold to create an extremely pleasant “lagerlike crispness,” that even Jeff would approve of.

With smooth, rich flavorful notes of toffee, fresh baked bread, hints of honey, and subtle underlying esters of dark fruit, this refreshingly clean specialty beer inspired by those found in Düsseldorf has arrived in SE Portland to be enjoyed by lager and ale fans alike!

IBU: 39
ABV: 5.3%
SRM: 12.4

Suggested Food Pairings: Pub Pretzel, Hazelnut and Cranberry Salad, Beyond Burger, Turkey BLTA

Suggested Soundtrack: This is Boston, NOT L.A
