When three Nike executives got fed up with the corporate rigamarole and decided to make a career out of the beer that was most likely saving their sanity, Rogue Ales was born. This was back in 1988, when executive yuppie sellouts were at the height of popularity. Jack Joyce, Rob Strasser and Bob Woodell took the plunge nevertheless, and we here at Drizly commend them.
The three collaborated with an eccentric chowder-slinger, Mohava "Mo" Niemi, founder of Mo's Restaurants, to open a brewery and pub downstairs from her apartment — under the strict condition that a photo of her in the bathtub hang forever above the bar. Rogue's Newport, Oregon, location soon grew into several along the West Coast that currently span from Washington to California.
By definition, "going rogue" is to take that sharp left turn off the map and into the unknown. That's exactly what the brewmasters at Rogue have done with their wide variety of flavors. Drizly is proud to offer quirky Rogue brews that include Sriracha Hot Stout, Fruit Salad Cider, Voodoo Doughnut Ale, Juniper Pale Ale and their infamous Dead Guy Ale. Rogue has also expanded into liquors, crafting crazy-cool concoctions such as pink gin, hazelnut rum and maple bacon doughnut vodka.
