NANO ALMANAC

Nano Breweries
Green Dragon, S.E. Portland, OR | Homebrewers: Green Dragon Brew Crew
 

Undercover Cop California Common
ABV 5.0% - IBU 40.2
Releases Wednesday, February 26th @ 5:00 p.m.

Built on a base of Pilsner and American 2-Row malt and flavored with Munich, Victory, Crystal, and Chocolate malts, it has a golden, biscuity flavor with a hint of caramel and a bit of breadiness. The Northern Brewer hops used throughout compliment by adding woody, minty characteristics that don't overwhelm the malt. Enjoy!

 

Issaquah Brewhouse, Issaquah, WA | Homebrewers: Impaling Alers

 

Not Your Typical Tripel
Release TBA

The next brew from the Impaing Alersis a non-traditional Tripel. What makes it unique is instead of using sugar in the mash, they used flaked rice.

The malt bill is 75% 2-row, 10%
Munich (10L) and 15% flaked rice. CTZ hops are used for bittering and Saaz for aroma. Wyeast's Trappist High Gravity yeast gives it that Trappist twang, although it is fermented a little colder to suppress the banana aroma.

Brewed by members Kraig Rury, Jeff Fatton and Justin Murray.

 

Rogue Public House, Eugene, OR | Homebrewers:

 

Ever wanted YOUR brew tapped at a bar? Now’s your chance, the Track Town Brewery’s nano system is looking for homebrew clubs. Email your information to TimBecker@rogue.com to learn more.

 

 

 Big taste comes from tiny breweries.

Which is why Rogue Ales collaborates with homebrewers in Oregon and Washington to craft unique beers on Rogue’s Nano brewing systems in Issaquah, Eugene and the Green Dragon in southeast Portland. 

Rogue supplies top of the line equipment, the ingredients and then gets out of the way so the homebrewers are free to create. They make it - we sell it - and beer fans get the chance to taste new and innovative brews that are unlike anything else. The proceeds go back to the clubs. But homebrewers also get the satisfaction of brewing something new and then seeing it slide across the bar into the hands of an appreciative customer paying cold, hard cash.

Rogue supports homebrewing because that’s how many of us got started.  Brewmaster John Maier was an American Homebrewers Association’s Homebrewer of the Year. Rogue’s Hazelnut Brown Nectar was created by homebrewer Chris Studach of the Cascade Brewers Society and has won numerous awards for World Championship Brown Ale. The Great American Nano Fest is held annually outside the Green Dragon and Buckman Botanical Brewery.
