Rogue’s Chipotle Ale: Beer With a Spicy Kick
by Damon Beres
I love a good beer, but after a summer of Rolling Rock-fueled barbecues I craved something new. Enter Rogue’s remarkable Chipotle Ale, a smoky brew that’s probably unlike anything you’ve ever had in a bottle.
Sure, it’s got a chile flavor similar to what you might taste on a taco, and its base is a standard amber ale. But the odd combination of ingredients makes this a beast unto itself. It may sound weird, but it’s very tasty—and if you need further recommendation from someone who knows something, well, Chipotle Ale took the gold in last year’s World Beer Championships. Now that’s a winner!
