No Teacher Left Behind Porter
Release Date: Wednesday, May 15th@ 5:00 pm
Rich and malty with a hint of vanilla on the nose, this robust porter will hit the spot as school adjourns for summer. A creamy head with subdued hops provide a smooth tasting porter. Five malts are balanced with an earthy blend of Northern Brewer and Styrian Golding hops then infused with Vanilla bean and aged on oak wood chips. Surely, No Teacher Will Be Left Behind with this 5.8% ABV Porter.
Brewed by Rogue Nation Global Ambassador Al (Big Al) Jorgensen!

Big taste comes from tiny breweries.
Which is why Rogue Ales collaborates with homebrewers in Oregon and Washington to craft unique beers on Rogue’s Nano brewing systems in Issaquah, Eugene and the Green Dragon in southeast Portland.
Rogue supplies top of the line equipment, the ingredients and then gets out of the way so the homebrewers are free to create. They make it - we sell it - and beer fans get the chance to taste new and innovative brews that are unlike anything else. The proceeds go back to the clubs. But homebrewers also get the satisfaction of brewing something new and then seeing it slide across the bar into the hands of an appreciative customer paying cold, hard cash.
Rogue supports homebrewing because that’s how many of us got started. Brewmaster John Maier was an American Homebrewers Association’s Homebrewer of the Year. Rogue’s Hazelnut Brown Nectar was created by homebrewer Chris Studach of the Cascade Brewers Society and has won nine awards for World Championship Brown Ale. The Great American Nano Fest is held annually outside the Green Dragon and Buckman Botanical Brewery.
