    Does the Whale on the label turn white when it's cold enough to drink?

    I cant wait for this to be a thing.

    Three Floyds could brew one with pages from Crowley's Book Of the Law.

    Especially naming it White Whale I can't see this as anything other than a massive trolling of the community on Rogues part. To which I tip my hat. They could have teased it and then let it rest where it belongs, but they're actually following through and making it? That's dedication...

    Rogue is such a joke now. They are not brewers any more, more just a novelty act.

    Although this would be a nice gift for anyone who owns a Yink, I think.

    The first edition WWA peaked awhile ago. 3rd edition is drinking nicely right now, imo.

    Rogue continue to define the word Pretentious. How much does this one cost, $75 for a bomber?

    Rogue seem extremely insecure. Needing to make outrageous beers to get attention. Beer brewed with yeast from a beard, pages from a novel. This is a shame.

    They make some good brews, and they're having some fun - I don't see a problem with it.

    This officially ends the era where even the most staunch supporters can think to defend this brewery. What a fucking abortion.

    Oh cmon guys, it's not like they're charging an arm and a leg for it (which they did for that Maple Bacon blech). It's made to create awareness of a local bookstore and it's fun. I surely hope they cleaned the books before they pulped 'em up though.

    Not gonna defend the beard beer though. lol.

    You dont have to buy it, or like any of their breweries but is in line with "keeping Portland weird" and i dont mind a quirky collaboration with the legendary Powell. I ain't drinking no fucken used book beer though. If they used Lolita or Master & Margarita or something I might have to rethink

    ink isn't an issue at that level of dilution

    That's it, my fantasy brewery Vixens and Sirens, Will create their own white whale too. It will only be released in a very limited home size brew of about 100 or so 375 ml's. I shall dub it Victory Beer and brew it with pages of George Orwell's 1984!

    Right, maybe that version could be called the Kindle Fire Brewed and Ale with roasted bits of Kindle & it would be a better way to recycle the Kindle instead of sticking it in a landfill, they can show how GREEN they are ooooooh;)

    C'mon now, you just let the cat outta the bag for the brewed once, limited release, 750ml Fat Tire...I hear they are going to oak-barrel age it to give that rubbery tire test a mellow finish;)

    I'm holding out for their commemorative beer for the San Diego zoo, made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good.

    They should do something with a Bukowski book..."She leaned over and farted, a kiss for you." Yeah, roll that page into a beer and I'll buy it.;)
