Voodoo Doughnut Maple Bacon Ale brewed by Rogue Ales - Newport, OR


Voodoo Doughnut Maple Bacon Ale brewed by Rogue Ales - Newport, Oregon    

Bacon, maple syrup and beer (otherwise known as the perfect breakfast) have come together to create one unholy, yet highly delicious substance. Bacon Maple Ale, the result of a collaboration between Voodoo Donut and Rogue, goes well with donuts or pork—or perhaps donuts covered in pork if you’re into that sort of thing. (That sort of thing being heart attacks.) It’s kind of a funny coincidence that the bottle is “Pepto-pink” considering this stuff probably causes indigestion. (All the best food stuffs usually do.) This sweet and savory beverage can be bought by the bottle online, or by the case at a Rogue Ales Pop-up store if you happen live in southern Portland. Description from Cool Material.  Food Pairing: Doughnuts & Pork

Voodoo Doughnut Maple Bacon Ale

       
Beer Review by Beer Advocate:
Appearance -Pours a clear, deep golden color With a thin 1/2 finger head that dissipates quickly leaving very little lacing.

Aroma - From the pop of the cap I smelled the sweet maple syrup. Afetr I poured, swirled, and sniffed I got the smoky bacon. Smells exactaly how I would imagine.

Taste - Smokey, baconey goodness. The smokiness is a little over powering, but you still get the sweetness from the maple syrup on the front end. The mouthfeel is a little lighter than I expected, but then again so is the beer. I was expecting more of a porter, but this is lighter. The favors really hold on to your tongue for a while, real staying power.

Overall - this is the real McCoy right here. I read the reviews, and I was a bit hesitant. I'm glad I got it and tried it. To me, it's a great balance of sweet on the front, and salty smokey finish. This beer is exactaly what it claims to be. Bravo Rogue, Bravo
  

      

The Rogue Ale Story
Jack Joyce, Bob Woodell, and another friend, Rob Strasser, were approached by Jeff Schultz, Bob's accountant, and an avid home brewer about starting a brewery. After many beers discussing the idea, construction of a small brewery began in June of 1988 in Ashland along a very scenic little stream called Lithia Creek. The 10 bbl brew system was set up in a basement with a 60 seat Pub above. The first brews were Amber and Gold. The Brewery and Pub opened in October 1988.

While the Brew Pub was located in a very pretty and scenic location, had a beautiful deck and enjoyed moderate success and the beer was great, Ashland was not to be Rogue's only adventure. Ashland was basically land locked, and frankly we were losing our butts in Ashland, trying to sell our hand-crafted ales. Rogue needed room to grow and grow we did. So Jack set off in search of greener pastures.

In early February of 1989, Jack wandered to Newport in search of the perfect place for another Rogue Pub. Legend has it that a terrible and unusual snow storm struck and Jack found himself stranded on the Historic Bay Front, with no way up the hill. He was forced to walk the streets until he met up with Mohave Neimi, founder of the famous Mo's Clam Chowder. She took him to the original Mo's restaurant, gave him a bowl of hot clam chowder and told him about her dream of living above a Bar and how she might just have the perfect spot for the next Rogue Brew Pub. The large building sported 3 full time apartments upstairs, a sweater shop, an Art Gallery and 1,100 sq. ft. of empty store front and an 800 sq. ft. garage that was currently being used to store antique cars. Mo offered the vacant space and the garage to Jack at a very generous price, under two stipulations: that a picture of Mo herself, naked in a bath tub, be forever displayed at the Pub (it's still there today just to the left of the Bar) and that Rogue "feed the fisherman", meaning that we give back to the local community. This building was known as the Front & Case Bldg.
