Titanoboa Triple IPA and other news

TITANOBOA

It’s been a while since our last email. Mainly we were waiting and waiting for label approval to announce the release of Titanoboa, our new triple IPA.

The recent unearthing of Titanoboa was, for many, the most exciting fossil discovery since the T-Rex. A 48 foot snake that ate crocodiles with no effort deserves to have a beer named after it. After 60 million years in hiding, Titanoboa has been reborn as a triple IPA with 10 different hops added at 10 different times in the brewing process. The different additions create an aromatic and flavorful hop experience meant to counteract the bitterness. Featuring over 5 lb of hops per barrel, this is our most complex beer we have done to date and is truly the bigger, meaner brother of Gigantophis. Ideally served at 50 – 55°F.

We are very excited to unleash our newest hoppy beast unto the world (or central Texas, at least). Drink it fresh and allow it to warm up a bit in your glass for the best taste experience. A lot of work and time went into this beer. We hope you enjoy it. There are a few kegs around, but it was mostly bottled. Look for it on select shelves in Austin, Houston, Dallas, Fort Worth, San Antonio, and surrounding areas. You can also try it this Saturday at our booth at the Big Texas Beer Fest in Dallas (if it lasts!).

After you grab a pint or bottle, you can vote for it in the “Best Imperial IPA Poll“. Voting ends April 18.

GIGANTOPHIS, ROOK, AND HOLIDAY
BRING HOME MEDALS

We recently entered 3 beers into the Beverage Tasting Institute’s World Beer Championships and are pleased to report all three were awarded medals! Gigantophis took silver, while Rook and Holiday were awarded gold. Crack one open this weekend to celebrate!

SUNDAY BRUNCH

In early March we did our first Sunday brunch at the brewery and it was a great success. We hope you can join us this Sunday, April 6, for another one. Each ticket includes an 11 oz coffee mug with the Rogness logo (that you get to keep) and up to four mug fills of Rogness beer. We are excited to have Chef Jen and her new food truck, The Ginger Armadillo, on hand with a special breakfast menu. Jen has worked with us in the past making food with some of our beer such as salted caramel cupcakes made with Gigantophis, which were available on Valentine’s Day at the brewery.

We have several delicious breakfast beers to offer you including your choice of beermosas (beer + OJ). Choose from Yogi, Raspberry Tenebrous, Ost infused with coffee, and Adder, a pale ale fermented with a farmhouse yeast. Get your ticket here.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO US, LET’S PARTY

2 years ago, on March 26th, we released our first beers unto the world. They were Bella, our Belgian golden ale, and Ost, our lovely porter. Thank you so much for choosing us in an increasingly crowded marketplace and thanks to all who have come visited us at the brewery. Save the date of May 10. We’re going to do a 2nd anniversary party from noon-4 that day. There will be 15 different beers, tours of the brewery, food trucks, a raffle, and a portion of the ticket price will go to Habitat for Humanity as we are proud to be a part of “The House That Beer Built” project. We’ll definitely be sending out an email soon with more details and a link to purchase tickets.
