Happy Belated Birthday Oregon

Friday, February 20th, 2009

Ok quick show of hands, who knew that Oregon had its 150th birthday on the 14th? I see one of you…. Oh you were 1233094805_1_ft0_roguesesquicentennialalescratching your head. Well at least I wasn’t the only one who missed it. In fact I wouldn’t even know still if it hadn’t been for the good people over at Rogue, and their Sesquicentennial Ale. Rogue has long and involved history with Oregon, and decided to honor that. So to commemorate this special month they released a beer made with only ingredients from Oregon. The barley was grown in the Klamath Basin, the hops at their own hop farms, Pacman yeast from Hood River, and free range coastal waters. What a fitting way to honor a state known for it’s micro brew industry. The beer is apparently on tap for a limited time, but outside of Portland your best bet for finding it would be at Rogues brew houses and pubs. This beer is also available in 22oz bombers, which is how I tried it. Definitely a beer to check out due to it’s uniqueness. For more info on Rogue and it’s drinks check out their website www.rogue.com. Also, if you get a chance you might want too try some of their other amazing beers.

Also I baked up some of those spent grain dog treats for my sister mutt. Apparently she enjoyed them, but refuses to write a review unless she gets a cut of any and all future advertising revenue that I may get on this site. I tried telling her that even if I were to get ads they are a long way off, and offered her another biscuit instead, but she referred me to her agent for further negotiations.
