“Unprincipled,” “unreliable,” and “without moral restraint” — those are the phrases that define the Newport, Or.,-based Rogue brewery and the Libertine restaurant that will unite in presenting a beer-cocktail throw-down on Thursday (Aug. 21), starting at 5 p.m. You say the definitions carry a negative connotation; we say let it rip. Let’s go against the grain, against the social norms, against the conventional wisdom. Let’s salute Rogue during D.C. Beer Week and its high number of award-winning, integrity-steeped, all-natural craft ales and spirits. We plan to do the same, to complement this high-octane, high-charging, high-stepping entity out of the Great Northwest. So whether you fancy yourself a Rogue, a Libertine, or even if you opt to embrace the media-spun, pedestrian-filled Pabulum of the day, join us to celebrate the art that tweaks the masses, with tongue planted firmly in cheek.
