Frequently Asked Questions about the new Rogue Eastside Pub & Pilot Brewery

green-dragon-exteriorYou may notice some changes occurring at the Green Dragon over the next few weeks. We’ve created this FAQ to answer any questions you might have. If you have any other concerns, please do not hesitate to email joerogue@rogue.com. Thank you for your support through this transition.

What is going on? The Green Dragon is converting to the Rogue Eastside Pub & Pilot Brewery. This will be the 10th outpost of the Rogue Revolution and our first Meeting Hall on the east side of Portland.

Why? Since Rogue purchased the Green Dragon in 2008, the focus has been variety, quality and the appreciation of craft beer. As the neighborhood and the business have evolved over the last eight years, we decided the time was right to bring the full Rogue experience to the east side of Portland. We’re eager to share Rogue’s world-class products and unique stories with new friends. The pilot brew system will allow us to expand our collection of fresh, interesting beers.

What will change in the pub? We will improve lighting, remove the back bar, rearrange the taps and add booths for more seating. We will offer 35 world-class Rogue ales, lagers, ciders and sodas on tap, plus Rogue Spirits. To honor the history of the Green Dragon, and to hold true to Rogue’s independent spirit, the original 19 taps dedicated to independent breweries will remain.

What happens with the Green Dragon Brew Crew? The transition will not affect the Green Dragon Brew Crew’s weekly release. The Green Dragon Brew Crew is a collective of avid home brewers that have been brewing at the Green Dragon since 2009. They have released a beer every Wednesday for 313 consecutive weeks and the tradition will continue at the Rogue Eastside Pub & Pilot Brewery.

Will the staff change? The change will not impact our current staff members. Russ Menegat, a Rogue Employee for 24 years, will continue to manage the pub.

Will the menu change? The new menu will feature Rogue Pub fare and a few favorites from the current Green Dragon menu, as well.

Will the hours change? Hours of operation will remain the same and the Green Dragon will stay open during the transition. Most of the construction will take place overnight and will not disrupt business.

What will happen to the Green Dragon Founders Club?  We will continue to honor their privileges.

What will happen to all the events I love? We will continue to host your favorite events, such as Killer Pumpkin Fest, Firkin Fest, The Wedge and our regular Meet the Brewer nights. More events are coming, so stay tuned.

What will happen with the brewery? We will use the pilot brewery to experiment with new styles and flavors, and to provide our customers with a variety of interesting brews to enjoy. Long-time brewer Danny Connors will continue to operate the pilot brewery and craft exclusive specialty brews in close partnership with Rogue Brewmaster John Maier.

Is anything happening on the patio? The second phase of the conversion is the renovation of the back patio. This will involve the removal of the Quonset Hut and the installation of new seating and landscaping. No trees will be bothered or removed. We aim to have this done by the beginning of February, 2017.

Will there be a grand opening celebration? The Rogue Eastside Pub & Pilot Brewery will open officially on Monday, December 15th, 2016. The grand opening celebration is open to the public.

Once again, thank you for your continued support and we appreciate your patience while we work through this transformation. If you have any further questions or concerns, please feel free to email joerogue@rogue.com.

Prost!

Black Beer Friday

black-beer-friday

Skip the hysteria and saddle up to the bar. We’re open today and serving up a very appropriate list of beers on this rainy, gray Black Friday.

Full Sail Black Gold Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout (2011, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016)

This extended aging presents hints of vanilla and allows the Stout to pick up the flavors of the wood, bourbon and oak. The aging accentuates the robust character of the Imperial Stout and brings out the depth of flavor from the bourbon creating an overall elegantly sophisticated beer. 9.6% ABV 40 IBU

Full Sail Top Sail Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Porter (2010, 2012)

This extended aging presents aromas of oak, coconut and bourbon.  Deep chocolate flavors warm to a full-bodied beer.  Oak, toast and caramel flavors are rounded by the bourbon fire and sweetness. 9.85% ABV 65 IBU

Anderson Valley Salted Caramel Bourbon Barrel Aged Porter

Aged for 6 months in Wild Turkey bourbon barrels, our Salted Caramel is woody and slightly sweet with notes of vanilla and coconut. It’s smooth with a medium-light body and mouthfeel and a light banana/fruit aroma. There’s some caramel and peanut brittle flavors but not cloying or overpowering. 6% ABV

Bruery 8 Maids-a-Milking

This mouthfeel and sweetness is complemented by robust layers of milk chocolate, subtle spice accents from our house Belgian yeast and roasty, cafe elements indicative of our take on the style. 11.3% ABV

Ninkasi Ground Control Imperial Stout

This rich, complex Imperial Stout is brewed with Oregon hazelnuts, star anise and cocoa nibs, and fermented with an Ale yeast that survived a trip to space and back. Mankind will enjoy the sweet finesse of this beer that only fares better with time. 10% ABV 80 IBU

Sierra Nevada Narwhal Imperial Stout

Narwhal Imperial Stout is inspired by the mysterious creature that thrives in the deepest fathoms of the frigid Arctic Ocean. Featuring incredible depth of malt flavor, rich with notes of espresso, baker’s cocoa, roasted grain and a light hint of smoke, Narwhal is a massive malt-forward monster. 10.2% ABV 60 IBU

Coalition Bring Out The Imp Barrel Aged Imperial Stout

Imperial Oatmeal Stout finished for 3 months in 52 year old whisky casks. 8.5% ABV

pFriem CDA

Fresh cut Douglas Fir & black currants. 7.5% ABV

Perennial 17 Mint Chocolate Stout

17 is an Imperial Stout brewed with huge amounts of chocolate malts, cacao nibs, and mint leaves 10% ABV

Green Dragon Brew Crew Release : Andes the Giant

brewcrew

What: Green Dragon Brew Crew Release of Andes the Giant

When: Wednesday, November 2nd 2016 @ 5pm

Specs: 9.3% ABV 22 IBU

Guest brewer Dave Napack won a homebrewing competition with the PDX Home Brewers Club and was invited to make one of his homebrew recipes with the Green Dragon Brew Crew. Dave wanted to showcase a big, complex flavor and he collaborated with the crew to create Andes the Giant – an amazing, unconventional Belgian Dark Strong ale using Chilean Patagonia Especial Malt.

Andes the Giant is a malty behemoth which matches the beauty and power of the mountains it is named after. This is a wonderfully balanced and deceptively strong beer that showcases the delicate toffee and raisin notes of the especial barley grown and malted in the Chilean Patagonia. The flavor of the especial malt truly highlights the varietal purity, terroir, uniqueness, and traditions of barley malting in Chile.

Project Pooch Pub Night

What : Project Pooch Pub Night

Join us for a night of fun for humans and dogs alike.

Brew Crew Release: Fresh Hop Sophie Amber Ale

What: Green Dragon Brew Crew Release of Fresh Hop Sophie Amber Ale

When: Wednesday, September 28th 2016 @ 5pm

Specs: 6% ABV 40 IBU

One of the really special things available locally this time of year are the Fresh Hop beers. This year brings another memorable harvest and many great beers from the craft brewing industry. The crew hand picked the hops for this beer one beautiful morning in late August, and the next day twenty pounds of fresh Independent hops from Rogue Farms were in the boil kettle to make this version of Sophie, our annual Fresh Hop beer.

While many fresh hop beers are giant hop IPAs and the like our version is a little softer, with a little more maltiness and a little less hop-resin burn in the throat. Utilizing brewing techniques we have developed for making fresh hop beers we are able to bring you this clean, clear American Amber fresh hop beer with a nice balance between the bitter and the the malt. At 6.0% ABV it is easy drinking on the patio during these early Fall days. Enjoy the fruits of the Summer hop harvest!
