Badski's Consumer Report


Rogue Dead Guy Ale - We all love to bitch about bad service, bad products and the miserable experiences we have had as consumers. However, I have been inspired by Ashton Kutcher's I pledge campaign (insert sarcastic laugh here and check out my post on the I pledge campaign) to be a better citizen so I have decided to start a new segment on my blog that highlights outstanding experiences I have had as a consumer. So welcome to Badski's Consumer Report!

It's ironic that I discovered an Oregon micro-brew almost three years into a stint living in the Greasy State aka New Jersey after living in Oregon for 18 years. But let me tell you, I am glad that I came across this beauty barley pop. 

Rogue describes Dead Guy Ale as a beer "In the style of a German Maibock, using our proprietary Pacman ale yeast. Deep honey in color with a malty aroma and a rich hearty flavor." I am far from a beer snob/tech drinker so I cannot get to in depth in describing every subtle flavor and nuance of this great beer, but rest assured Dead Guy is more than just a cool name. I would say the key statistics are as follows: smooth, rich, flavorful, 9%. A great beer for eating alongside a nice home cooked meal or the classic college circus. Hit up the Rogue website here and go get yourself a Draft, 22oz Bottle, Six Pack, or my personal favorite the 64oz Growler!

Dude, it's made it Portland! We visited it the morning of your wedding. True story.

They are actually out of Newport but I know what you are talking about. They have like a restaraunt brewery type deal in Portland. Great beer. I am looking forward to that guest blog entry.
