john, never heard of Soba Ale, but I would probably like it as I usually only buy soba noodles, love buckwheat in any form.

It was one of their Morimoto ales - there are three of them now. The didn't have the imperial pilsner at the time.

You can see them all at http://www.rogue.com/brews.html

Gurano is a nut that has caffine if Im not mistaken. It takes you and youre heartbeat from 0 to 60 in 5 seconds. It makes me a bit nervous actually.

I belive that Red Hook used to brew something similar to that using Starbucks Coffee. Haven't seen it on the market in a while though. In addition to Pyramid, Red Hook is another good brewery to visit if you're in the Seattle area.

Should have known with the rogue name, from Oregon. Some of the beer's on the link I have seen in the stores here in Eugene. I usually drink Mirror Pond made by the Deschutes Brewery.

Oregon has great beers too. If anyone ever is there, in addition to the vineyards in the Williamette region, you should try these other breweries in addition to Rogue. The only drawback is that the breweries are very spread out.
  • Full Sail in Hood River (eat at Stonehedge Restaurant in Hood River if you get the chance)
  • Deschutes in Bend (Plan for a faaaaaaaaar drive)
  • Widmeir Bros. in Portland

thanks for praising Oregon, ironchef, I live in Eugene. I love Deschutes brews, usually Mirror Pond, which I can get in local pubs on tap. WInes are great, like you said. Have not been to HOod Rover.
