Rogue's "Beard Beer" Release Party & Fancy Beard Competition

Right on the heels of Hopjacks Iron Maiden Trooper Ale release party, they continue the new beer love with another release party this Friday, August 30th. This time around they are releasing one of the most "unique" recent experiments in the craft beer world. That would be Rogue Ales "Beard Beer".

For those who haven't already heard the story, you maybe asking yourself exactly what is a "Beard Beer". Glad you asked. That would be a beer that Rogue made using yeast created from Brewmaster John Maier's Beard. A beard that Rogue proudly explains has been around since 1983 and has seen over 15,000 brews.

Upping the ante even more, Hopjacks will be throwing a "Fancy Beard Competition" in conjunction with this release party. The competition will result in winners for each of the following three categories:

  • Length
  • Fullness
  • Freestyle

This event is sponsored by Rogue Ales and the Emerald Coast Beard & Moustache Alliance. According to Hopjacks, only two kegs of this beer were sent to Florida and they will have one at the downtown location and one at the Nine Mile location. So whether you bring your best facial hair along with you to compete or not, make sure you get to Hopjacks if you want to try this limited beer on tap.
