On October 13th, Rogue Ales and Spirits celebrated its 30th birthday with a smooth and sweet wheat wine anniversary brew, a 1988 happy hour and a toast to 30 years of Rogue. And with their signature beer, Dead Guy Ale, created in celebration of the Mayan Day of the Dead, this October is the perfect time to pay the local pub a visit.
The Newport, Oregon based brewery’s northernmost pub in Issaquah is anything but average—you’ll go in for the killer brews and spirits and stay for the amazing food. From pub fare like creamy-crunchy fried cheese curds, to elegant hazelnut and cranberry salads, to flaky halibut fish and chips, Rogue offers all the flavor you’d want, and the perfect pairings to go with whatever drink you’re in the mood for. Just promise us you won’t leave without trying their Buffalo Chicken Sliders for Doug: buttermilk fried sous vide chicken smothered in house made buffalo sauce with blue cheese crumbles on a sweet Hawaiian roll with a side of potato chips.
With a wealth of trivia and classic games at your disposal (everything from Dominos to Star Wars Trivia), you could easily spend a few fast hours at the pub, but it’s also a great place to bring the whole clan after a hike on the nearby Issaquah trails. A surprisingly family friendly spot, the pub offers a kid’s menu and fun specialty made sodas.
Stop in soon to grab a pint of their seasonal pumpkin patch ale before it’s gone, made with pumpkins grown, harvested and roasted by Rogue Farms. Or better yet, try the Dead ‘N’ Dead brew—their classic maibock-style Dead Guy Ale aged in a Dead Guy Whiskey barrel.
Happy 30th, Rogue!
