Tap Handle #29: Rogue - Dead Guy Ale

This is a very prized tap handle, as the "Dead Guy" has been a popular advertising icon for Rogue. Everyone loves this tap!

Click through to read more about Rogue Brewery and their Dead Guy Ale...


Rogue was founded in Ashland, Oregon in 1988 and moved their headquarters to the coastal town of Newport (another brewery not far from where I live). Rogue was inspired to move to Newport by Mo Niemi, the Port of Newport director and owner of Mo's Famous Clam Chowder (Mo is now deceased but her likeness is on the Half-e-weizen bottle). Rogue produces over 60 ales, many seasonal or for special events, using a non-pasteurized process with all-natural ingredients., including a proprietary yeast known as Pacman. They export their ales across the U.S. and internationally as well. All of their beers are meant to go with food, and they've even worked with Iron Chef's Masaharu Morimoto on brewing recipes and pairing their ales with specific foods. Dead Guy Ale is a German-style Maierbock that won a silver medal at the World Beer Championships for 3 consecutive years. The "Dead Guy" was inspired by a private sticker the brewery made for the restaurant Casa U Betcha in Portland, to celebrate the Mayan Day of the Dead. It proved to be so popular that they put the sticker on their Maierbock ale. Weighted average on ratebeer.com is 3.49 out of 5.
