Newport, Ore. – The dead have collided with Dead ‘N’ Dead, a combination of award-winning Dead Guy Ale and Dead Guy Whiskey barrels. Part of Rogue’s DIY Revolution, Dead ‘N’ Dead is another example of how Rogue utilizes everything under its roof to craft distinctly unique products.
The only brewery-distillery-cooperage in the U.S., Rogue brewers, distillers and coopers placed Dead Guy Ale in barrels which had previously held Dead Guy Whiskey, made with Rogue Farms ingredients. The beer was then aged for six months, allowing it to soak up flavors and personality from the whiskey barrels.
“We had a lot of fun producing Dead ‘N’ Dead,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce. “We have these amazing tools to work with, from our handcrafted ales and spirits to our whiskey barrels. Our brewers and distillers got resourceful by colliding our most popular beer and spirit to make a new favorite.”
Dead ‘N’ Dead features a strong whiskey nose and added notes of oak and vanilla, with a smooth caramel flavor from the whiskey barrels that balances out Dead Guy Ale’s malty, honey sweetness. Just in time for Fall, Dead ‘N’ Dead will be available for a limited time in 22oz. bottles and available on draft in select locations. Find it near you using the Rogue Beer Finder.
