Rogue Fresh Roast Ale

Press Release

Newport, Ore. – Roasting the Revolution isn’t easy, but that’s why Rogue Ales & Spirits doesn’t back down from a challenge. Rogue’s Fresh Roast Ale is a break from the norm, roasting Rogue Farms-grown barley in-house with a vintage coffee roaster. After roasting, the brewers rush the barley 273 steps to the brew kettle, creating the signature taste unlike any other beer on the market.

“We wanted to challenge ourselves to do something unique,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce. “Fresh Roast highlights every step of the brewing process. We took our Rogue Farms estate-grown barley, hand-roasted it, and walked 53 seconds to the brew kettle to capture the freshest taste of roasted barley.”

Fresh Roast features robust, roasted coffee notes without the addition of any actual coffee. It can be found on draft and in six pack 12oz. bottles now through February 2018. Find Fresh Roast using the Rogue Beer Finder and for more information on the Roast-Your-Own Revolution visit
