Cinco de Mayo!

3 May 2010 No Comment

This week’s firkin is from Rogue and will be tapped on Wednesday instead of Friday this week as we celebrate Mexican culture at The J. Clyde with a cask-conditioned Chipotle Ale.  On May 5th!  Cinco de Mayo for you folks who don’t speak Mexican!

Roasted chipotle peppers produce an eye opening chile flavor in this deep golden ale with a malty, smoky aroma and smooth, crisp flavor.

8 Ingredients: Malts: Harrington, Klages & Maier Munich.Hops: Cascade and Willamette.Specialty: Chipotle Peppers.Yeast & Water: Rogue’s Pacman Yeast & Free Range Coastal Water.

Dry hopped with Amarillo this beer will have a definite Tex-Mex connection!

“Dedicated to Spanish author Juan de la Cueva, who, in 1575, wrote of a Mexican dish that combined seedless chipotles with beer:  Chipotle Ale is based on Rogue’s American Amber Ale, but delicately spiced with smoked chipotle chile peppers.

Blend it with Rogue Chocolate Stout and create a Mole black and tan!”
