Old Style Light has been around for over 100 years, featuring a crisp freshness of a classic American lager. Still a mainstay in the Midwest and at Chicago Cubs games.
Frankenlager is Smuttynose’s interpretation of an IPA decoction-mashed and fermented like the classic lagers of Europe. It’s crisp and refined, but certainly not meek or mild.
Rogue’s Honey Kölsch is a big time, award-winning honey beer (2016 & 2015 Honey Beer Competition – Gold & Best in Show, 2015 World Beer Championships – Gold, etc.) that represents a true labor of love. As the name suggests, Honey Kölsch benefits from the 100+ colonies of honey bees raised in Rogue Farms own apiary. In addition to the “Rogue Hopyard Honey” and “Rogue Wildflower Honey” used, the recipe also draws upon other ingredients grown on Rogue premises.
