Rogue Dead Guy Ale ( Newport, OR )

Rogue Dead Guy Ale was created in the early 1990s as a private tap sticker to celebrate the Mayan Day of the Dead (November 1st, All Souls Day) for Casa U Betcha in Portland, Oregon. The Dead Guy design proved popular and was incorporated into a bottled product a few years later with Maierbock as the elixir. Despite the rumors, any association with the Grateful Dead is pure coincidence.
Dead Guy is a German-style Maibock made with Rogue's proprietary "PacMan" ale yeast. It is deep honey in color with a malty aroma, rich hearty flavor and a well balanced finish. Dead Guy is created from Northwest Harrington, Klages, Maier Munich and Carastan malts, along with Perle and Saaz Hops.

Rogue
Rogue Ales was founded in 1988 by Jack Joyce, Rob Strasser and Bob Woodell and the first Rogue brewpub was located in Ashland, Oregon and was a 10bbl brewsystem. A second brewpub, a 15bbl brewsystem, opened in Newport, Oregon in May 1989. Rogue eventually closed its Ashland operation after a great flood destroyed the place. In 1991, the 15bbl system from the Newport brewpub was transferred across the bay to the current brewery at and upgraded to a 30bbl system. In 1998 Rogue bought a 50bbl brewsystem and it is the only brewsystem now in use.
