Got a 6-pack of this delicious brew from our old roomie, Rich for our wedding stock-the-shed shower the other night. We love some Rogue and Rich is from Oregon so it was only appropriate to get this delicious beer. This German Maibock has a wonderful amber color and a slight hint of citrus, but a slightly bitter after taste - however is a solid beer none the less. After doing a little further research on this brew we found that it was actually created in the early 90's as a private tap label in celebration of the Mayan Day of the Dead festival (fitting title, I know) held on Nov. 1st. The beer became so popular that it was later bottled year round. We also learned that there are a couple variations to this beer; a Double Dead Guy Ale and also a John John Dead Guy which is a version where the original dead guy is distilled in whiskey barrels. Rouge Brewery is a fantastic brewery located in Portland, OR that offers many great brews. We encourage all you beer drinkers to give them a try. On another note we must mention this glass featured in the second photo from Jessi's brother Dylan. Dylan spent some time over the summer traveling abroad and picked us up this great mug in Spain. I don't know much about it since Dylan wasn't too thorough in enlightening us about it, but it looks super-cool.

Holy cow, that's some great beer to stock your shed. I would love to be your neighbor. Awesome selections. I have no doubt that I could not get my hands on that beer here in Tallahassee.

I'm not a beer drinker, but that label alone is worth the price of the beer!
