Double the Legend
Newport, OR, December 1, 2010 -- Double Mocha Porter is the first of three limited release beers from Rogue's Double Series in 2011. Double Mocha Porter is the evolution of Rogue's legendary Mocha Porter, the recipient of over 35 awards for taste and quality.
All of Rogue's Double Series will be available in beautiful 750 ML serigraphed, painted bottles, as well as on draft. These unique bottles make quite the journey before finding their way to shelves. The glass bottles are sourced in Germany, paint jacketed in Canada, and serigraphed in Tualatin, Oregon - all before making their way to the Brewery in Newport, Oregon and eventually to the hands of fellow Rogues across the United States.
Double Mocha Porter in its Royal Blue bottle debuts in early January 2011; Double Dead Guy in Black arrives in May; and in August, Double Chocolate Stout appears in a sleek Red bottle.
Double Mocha Porter is brewed with 11 ingredients including: C-120, C-150, Kiln Coffee, Black, Chocolate and Rogue Micro Barley Farm DareTM & RiskTM Malts; Summit and Rogue Micro Hopyard Revolution Hops, Free Range Coastal Water and Pacman Yeast.
Each of the three beers are brewed using hops from Rogue's 42-acre micro hopyard, located in Oregon's Wigrich Appellation, and barley from the Rogue GYO barley farm, located in Oregon's Tygh ValleyAppellation. Rogue remains committed to saving the terroir of Oregon hops and barley, one acre at a time, by growing our own.
