Happy Monday, everybody! This week, Ryan and Alex are trying Dead Guy Ale by Rogue Ales. Rogue Ales started brewing in 1988 in Ashland, Oregon. After the pub opened later that year, Jack (the owner) started looking to expand due to overwhelming success. In early February 1989, Jack wandered to Newport in search of the perfect place for another Rogue Pub. Legend has it that a terrible and unusual snow storm struck, and Jack found himself stranded on the Historic Bay Front, with no way up the hill. He was forced to walk the streets until he met up with Mohave Neimi, founder of the famous Mo’s Clam Chowder. She took him to the original Mo’s restaurant, gave him a bowl of hot clam chowder, and told him about her dream of living above a Bar and how she might just have the perfect spot for the next Rogue Brew Pub. The large building sported 3 full-time apartments upstairs, a sweater shop, art gallery and 1,100 square feet of empty storefront and an 800 square foot garage that was currently being used to store antique cars. Mo offered the vacant space and the garage to Jack, at a very generous price, under two stipulations; that a picture of Mo herself, naked in a bathtub, be forever displayed at the Pub (which is still there today just to the left of the bar) and that Rogue “feed the fishermen”, meaning that Rogue gives back to the local community. This building was known as the Front & Case Building. In Feb of 1989, construction began on the Bay Front Brew Pub. Making this a step up in the world by going from a basement in Ashland to a garage in Newport. Dead Guy Ale is a German Maibock full of rich caramel malts and herbal hop nuances, tied together with a balanced hop bitterness. This week on FDB - Florida Man strikes again!
