If you’re ready for a serious taste-bud adjustment, head over to the Freakin’ Frog, where owner Adam Carmer has gotten his hands on two kegs of Rogue Charlie, an imperial India pale ale that puts all others to absolute shame. It’s a 14.1-percent-alcohol, special version of an American strong ale with a reddish hue and a rich, robust flavor that’s a bargain at any price—although here it’s $9.50 a glass. Believe the hype. Problem is, you’ll have to get over there now. As Carmer explains, there are no more shipments of this life-changing potable for the remainder of the year. As if you needed an excuse to hit the bars.
