In a tropical craft beer collision of kindred spirits, Oregon’s Rogue Ales and Hawaii’s Paradise Beverage announce the release of Paradise Pucker, a Hawaiian-inspired sour ale brewed with passion fruit, orange and guava – better known as simply “POG.”
Inspired by Rogue’s longtime admiration for the state of Hawaii, Paradise Pucker is dedicated to the Mahalo spirit as well as Rogue’s late founder, Jack Joyce, a lifelong lover of the islands and part-time resident.
“We’ve been wearing Tiki shirts for the last 768 Tuesdays,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce, “So you could say we had some pre-existing inspiration to make a POG beer.”
Paradise Pucker will be available on draft and in serigraphed 22oz bottles throughout the state of Hawaii starting September 1, as the first ever bottled sour from Rogue Ales. Paradise Pucker can also be found on draft in limited quantities at all Rogue locations.
