Featured at this March 21st event will be none other than John Maier of Rogue Ales. Since 1990 John has been living the dream of going from home brewer to craft brewer.

This year John elected for his 21st brew an Olde Ale called 21 Ale. Brewed with 14 different ingredients this beer is a touch over 8.00% but definitely a sipper.

14 Ingredients:

2 Row, Briess Amber, C-40, Wyermann Carafa & Rogue Farms RiskTM Malt; Willamette, US Goldings & Rogue Farms Revolution Hops; Simpsons Golden Naked Oats; Franco-Belges Carawheat; Molasses, Brewer’s Licorice, Wyeast Old Ale Blend Yeast & Free Range Coastal Water.


  • 20.75º PLATO
  • 30 IBU
  • 69 AA
  • 21º Lovibond

As with most celebrations the party is still going and this time John is taking his enthusiasm to The Green Dragon (along with a few special beers). On top of Rogues 21 Ale, you should expect draughts of Charlie 1981, Love and Hoppiness, and Dry-hopped Mogul Madness. Thee whole thing kicks off at 5PM, so don’t be late.
