Rogue Ales & Spirits Launches Promise Gone Aw-Rye IPA


Newport, Ore. – Rogue Ales & Spirits announces the launch of Promise Gone Aw-Rye IPA. Each year, longtime Rogue brewmaster John “More Hops” Maier creates a special, one-time only beer that is bottled and given as a holiday gift to all Rogue employees. Last year, John brewed a Red Rye IPA that was so beloved by the Rogue family that we had to break John’s promise to never brew the beer again and decided that this creation should be shared with beer drinkers across the globe.

Made with Rogue Farms Dream rye, Promise Gone Aw-Rye starts with a subtle kick of rye up front, then delivers a full malt body to the palate with plenty of Rogue Farms hops on the finish.

“Not only did it take a lot of convincing for John to finally agree to break his promise and brew more of his red rye IPA,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce, “but it’s taken a lot of dare, risk and dream to grow our own rye.”

Coming off a late summer harvest of Rogue Farms Dream Rye, Promise Gone Aw-Rye is now available on draft and in 22oz serigraphed bottles. For more information about Growing the Revolution visit
