This is a special beer brewed by all members of Green Dragon Brewing (Rich, Steve, Alex, Warren, Tracy and Dylan) on two back-to-back brew days, December 30th & 31st of 2017. It is a classic Belgian dark strong ale. This special-edition was aged for two months in a Rogue-made, 20 gallon oak barrel with Rogue Dark Rum. It was then cellared and aged for over a year. Look out for the apple, plum and oak flavor characteristics and let it warm you up. Cheers!
To start off Big A$$ Beer Month (BABM) 2020, Gelber Drache (Yellow Dragon) is here to bring you warmth, illumination and wealth for the new year. The Sorachi Ace and Citra hops provide a lemony-citrus flavor to this monster. It is big, with a beautiful, long-lasting white head and a lingering bitterness, nicely balanced by the Weyermann pilsner malt.
In Japanese tradition the color yellow symbolizes courage and protection, so don’t be a coward, but enjoy carefully as it is a very powerful beast. Happy New Year!
Just in time for the holidays, we present a Habergeiss! This is an Austrian/Germanic mythical animal that is a cross between a goat and goblin (and sometimes a bird!) that will take bad children away in its Zistl (basket). This beer is a smooth, malty lager with a touch of toast character. Delicately hopped with Saaz for just the right balance. We gave it an extended lagering for exceptional smoothness and clarity. Enjoy a pint and avoid the Habergeiss Zistl this holiday season.
For this year’s fresh hop beer, we traveled down to Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon and picked up over 20lbs of fresh Amarillo hops from the hop farms operated by Coleman Farms.
The melon, stone fruit, and citrus aromas from the Amarillos are paired with spicy, fruity UK hops, malt, and yeast for a complex and flavorful mix of UK and US IPA styles.
