The beer, available only at Yard House, will be offered by the goblet or 9-ounce shorty.Rogue Chehalem Spruce Tip IPA, the result of patience and dedication to the brewing process has been aged to perfection creating a one of a kind ale.  It began when the Yard House beverage and culinary teams traveled to Newport, Oregon, to collaborate with Rogue Ales & Spirits’ legendary Brewmaster John Maier and his team.  Together they created the Rogue Spruce Tip IPA, which was tapped in on December 7, 2015, to mark Yard House’s 19th anniversary.  After the brewing process was complete, a small portion of the Spruce Tip IPA batch was reserved and aged for seven months in Chehalem Vineyards Pinot Noir oak barrels, which hail from Oregon’s Willamette Valley wine growing region.  The wooden casks permitted the delicate nuances of French oak to seep and settle in.  The result is a rare Newport, Oregon-brewed IPA steeped in Alaskan spruce tips, aged in French oak barrels, and available exclusively at Yard House.“This is a very special beer,” said Gregory Howard, beverage manager for Yard House.  “The original Spruce Tip IPA produced a uniquely spiced and hoppy body, which was complemented by the sweetness of spruce tips in the finish.  This next generation, which was aged in French oak barrels that once housed pinot noir, has a unique flavor that beer aficionados will appreciate.  We’re very excited to share this beer with our guests.”Rogue’s Chehalem Spruce Tip IPA will be tapped on August 9 at all 65 Yard House locations and is part of the restaurant’s Chalkboard Series–seasonal beers and small-batch selections–that rotates frequently.   Each location will receive a highly limited quantity of five gallons or less that is expected to move quickly.   For more information on Yard House and its Limited-Release Beers, visit http://www.yardhouse.com/beers/new-limited-release-beers.Yard House is open daily for lunch, dinner and late-night dining and is known for its great food, classic and alternative rock, and more than 100 tap handles of beer.

Schniederjans wins first Web.com event in playoff

first_imgWICHITA, Kan. – Ollie Schniederjans won the Air Capital Classic in hot conditions Sunday for his first Web.com Tour title, beating amateur Collin Morikawa and J.J. Spaun with an 18-foot birdie putt on the second hole of a playoff. ”I felt like it was probably a 20-percent chance of making it,” Schniederjans said about the winning putt that broke left to right. ”I just wanted to pure the heck out of it and see what happens. It went in beautifully. It was incredible.” Schniederjans shot a 3-under 67 to match Morikawa and Spaun at 17-under 263 at Crestview Country Club. Schniederjans matched the course record with a 61 on Saturday to take a two-stroke lead. The 23-year-old former Georgia Tech star earned $112,500 to jump from 14th to third on the money list with $245,713, more than enough to wrap up a PGA Tour card as a top-25 finisher in the regular season. ”It’s just a life-time dream come true,” Schniederjans said. ”To be able to go out there and be a member of the PGA Tour, it’s an unbelievable feeling. I put so much work in to get there. I’m thrilled to join a bunch of my friends out there.” In April in Colombia, Schniederjans lost a playoff to Brad Fritsch in the Servientrega Championship. ”I can’t believe how much I’ve learned this year,” Schniederjans said. ”I never would’ve thought I had this much to get better at and this much to learn. I needed this year on the Web.com Tour, honestly. I don’t think I was ready for the PGA Tour. Maybe I could’ve been ready, but I wasn’t at my best. This year, I’ve gotten so many things in order. I feel like I’m going out there the best version of myself.” Morikawa, the Pac-12 freshman of the year at the University of California, shot his second straight 63. He played the final five holes of regulation in 5 under, with an eagle on the par-5 14th and birdies on the par-4 15th, 16th and 18th. ”Ollie played great and J.J. played great,” Morikawa said. ”It’s amazing to put myself up here and compete with these guys.” Spaun finished with his second 64 in a row. He also played the final five holes of regulation in 5 under, with an eagle on 14 and birdies on the next three. Brandon Hagy was fourth at 16 under after a 65.last_img read more
