Dedicated to Spanish author Juan de la Cueva, who, in 1575, wrote of a an dish that combined seedless chipotles with beer: Chipotle Ale is based on Rogue's American Amber Ale, but delicately spiced with smoked jalapeno (chipotle) Chile peppers. Deep amber in color with a tight head, rich malty aroma, delicately smooth and crisp flavor, and subtle chipotle chili finish. Chipotle Ale is created from Northwest Harrington, Klages, and Maier Munich Malts; Willamette and Cascade hops; and Chipotle (smoked jalapeno) Peppers. Blend it with Rogue Chocolate Stout and create a Mole' black and tan!
Chipotle Ale is the perfect companion to spicy Mexican dishes, particularly those loaded with chipotle and jalapeno peppers.
