Go Hazelnuts for Beer with Rogue

Hazelnut Brown Nectar is getting a new look in 2018. Don’t worry: we’re not changing the recipe that has become so popular.

Open up to hazelnuts with Hazelnut Brown Nectar, Rogue’s Oregon twist on a classic European Brown Ale. Hazelnut Brown Nectar is now available in 12-ounce cans and is newly redesigned. The updated design features a hand-drawn cracked hazelnut, bringing the Pacific Northwest twist to the inside and out.

“It was time for a new look. We went with hazelnuts on the label to better convey what the product is,” said Rogue Creative Director Hagen Moore about the 5-time GABF winning beer. “The nut is cracked to reveal the nectar inside.”

99% of hazelnuts in the U.S. were grown in Oregon.

Hazelnut Brown Nectar was originally brewed by Chris Studach, Rogue Brewmaster John Maier’s friend and fellow homebrewer, for the 1993 American Homebrewers Association dinner. Each can, bottle and package is dedicated to Chris Studach — who’s image formerly graced the label — and the homebrewer in each of us.

Hazelnut Brown’s new look is available in 22 ounce bottles, 12 ounce bottles and 12 ounce cans starting January 1, 2018. Locate it in its new packaging and on draft near you using the Rogue Beer Finder. Find more information on the revolution at
