Rogue Ales & Spirits announces Counter Currant, a ground to glass beer inspired by black currants grown at Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon.
Pouring deep purple in color, Counter Currant is a light-bodied fruit ale with rich flavors of black currant and a dry, tart finish. It’s available nationwide from November 2018 through February 2019.
“The berries add layers of flavor to the lightly hopped ale,” says Brewmaster John Maier. “Black currants have a sweet and earthy flavor profile and floral aromatics, which makes this ale a balanced sip with depth of flavor. It’s a great beer to go on your Thanksgiving table.”
Still fairly uncommon in the United States, black currants (also known as cassis) have a cabernet sauvignon-like intensity that is balanced with a strong backbone of acidity and sweetness. This complexity makes Counter Currant food-friendly, just in time for the holiday season.
Counter Currant is available nationally on draft and in 4-pack 16 ounce cans November 2018 through February 2019. Use the Rogue Finder to find it near you.
