About Rogue Kells Irish Lager
In 1998 the McAleese Brothers, owners of Kells Irish Pubs in Portland, OR, Seattle, WA, and San Francisco, wanted to make an American beer that would float Guinness. Gerard and Patrick McAleese asked Rogue Brewmaster John Maier to create the recipe. John used acidulated malts imported from Europe that resulted in a crisp, apple flavor profile. The bottle label reflects the McAleese family heritage, pictures the Kells Irish Pub logo, and a famous Irish Flutist. An Irish style lager with a smooth mellow flavor and an apple crisp finish.
