    FROM THE Spring 2015 ISSUE
     

The folks at Oregon-based Rogue Ales & Spirits have capitalized on a hot condiment hailed by hipsters and food aficionados alike, introducing the Rogue Sriracha Hot Stout Beer, brewed with that curious condiment that some call “rooster sauce,” thanks to the rooster emblazoned on the bottle. Sriracha is actually just a magic mix of hot sauce, distilled vinegar, garlic, sugar and salt. For your next catered affair, Rogue’s beer, like the sauce, pairs well with various vittles, from soups, sauces, pasta, pizza, hot dogs, hamburgers and chow mein to, well, just about anything you’d like to spice up.
