The Hop Reviews Vol. 09: A Monthly Beer Review

CHICAGO, IL

We drink a lot of beer here at The Hop Review. So, we found it only fitting that we share some of our thoughts on said beer, with "The Hop Reviews". We've tasted through the following 14 beers for February, and rated them on a scale of 100. Enjoy!

A Q&A With Rogue's Brewmaster, John Maier

A Q&A With Rogue's Brewmaster, John Maier

NEWPORT, OR

Rogue has been at the brewing game since the late 80's, making them one of the pioneers of the modern craft movement. For nearly that entire stretch, Brewmaster John Maier has been leading the "revolution" at the Oregon brewery, winning over 450 awards during his tenure. We had the chance to shoot a few questions over to John to find out his thoughts on current trends in beer, the importance of Rogue Farms, and get a glimpse of what it's like to work at one of the country's most influential breweries.
