Rogue Brewer’s Night at Latona Pub

In 2007, Latona Pub celebrated its 20th anniversary. Tonight, the Green Lake-area pub celebrates their 18th Annual Rogue Brewer’s Night by welcoming Rogue’s brewmaster John Maier and his wife Stacey to Seattle. The Maiers are making the trip from Newport, Oregon with a cask-conditioned firkin of Rogue’s Hazelnut Brown Nectar Ale. They’ll also be joined by Chris Studach, who inspired the Hazelnut Brown and is pictured on the bottle. Studach, an Oregon homebrewer, introduced the idea of adding hazelnuts (the official state nut of Oregon) to a nut brown ale in 1993 at an American Homebrewers Association convention. Maier loved the idea and thus the Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar was born.

In addition to Studach relating stories about Maier and the early days at Rogue, there will be a few special Rogue beers on tap (other than the Hazelnut Brown) and prizes will be given away. The festivities get under way at 8 pm. Yes, it’s a Monday night, but this might be worth making the trip out to the corner of Latona and 65th. You can always call in sick on Tuesday.
