Little Brett comes out a hazy, straw-colored beer featuring an aroma bursting with pineapple and notes of bread crust. Pineapple continues through the flavor with additional notes of fresh cut grass. A mild tartness in the finish is rounded out by a pleasant hop-bitterness. ABV: 4.8%

ROGUE

HOT TUB LAGER: 4/6C cases

Rogue’s Founder, Jack LeRoy Joyce, was known for his love of Hot Tubbing, which he typically enjoyed in his birthday suit. When Jack passed away in 2014, the Jack Joyce Scholarship was established in his honor. The scholarship benefits Fermentation Science students at Oregon State University. During the second annual scholarship presentation, when one of the original recipients was asked to share a few words about what the scholarship meant to him, he confessed that after he paid for his books, tuition and other expenses, he used the rest to buy a hot tub, the “most Rogue-ish thing possible.” As a nod to that Rogue-ish purchase — and to Jack Joyce — we created Hot Tub Scholarship Lager, a German-style Helles Lager designed to be enjoyed by Hot Tub lovers everywhere. A portion of the proceeds from Hot Tub Scholarship Lager fund the Jack Joyce Scholarship and continue to support fermentation science students at Oregon State University. ABV: 5.5%
