Most beer lovers in the Pacific Northwest can recognize him in an instant – the oddly charming skeleton that has become the mascot of Rogue Ales & Spirits. He started his career on labels of the award-winning Dead Guy Ale, which most recently snagged a gold medal at the 2018 New York International Beer Competition. This is just one claim to fame that has helped expand the Newport-based microbrewery into an ale powerhouse that has even added a line of small batch gins and whiskeys. Rogue Ales & Spirits grows their own hops and other ingredients including the honey that flavors their Honey Kolsch. With brew pubs across Oregon, including on Newport’s historic Bayfront, the flagship building, Rogue Brewer's on the Bay in South Beach has become a destination where visitors can dine and pair their meal with one of the near 40 ales on tap or order a flight of tasters to find a favorite. Best of all, the gift shop at Rogue's World Headquarters is full of items such as shirts, hats and printed glassware, so visitors can bring home a charming little dead guy of their own.
