This week Rogue Ales rolls out Blunt n' Bitter beer in honor of allegedly racist and ESPN-fired sports talk radio host Colin Cowherd. The Newport-based brewery also makes pink-bottled beers branded for Portland's favorite doughnut shop, and a beer from yeast pulled off the Rogue brewmaster's scruffy beard. Rogue also took the iconoclastic step of bringing alcohol and carpet together with its PDX Carpet IPA.
What other beloved Portland celebrities deserve their own Rogue beers? Here's our list:

Tonya Harding Ice Beer
In tribute to Oregon's most famous athlete, this brew is freeze-distilled in a room beneath the old Clackamas Town Center ice rink. Strong enough to give you courage to bash in your mortal enemy's knee caps.
Baldy's Hot Take Gose
In honor of beloved Oregonian sports columnist John Canzano, this is an extra-salty but also spicy chili beer.
Cylvia Hayes Golden Ale
You'll dig this upwardly mobile Belgian ale in honor of the ex-first fiancee!
Isaac Brock's Modest Mouse Poop Beer
(Actually just Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar.)
Repackaged Lone Star in a silver-and-black bottle with five golden rings around the top.
Lars Larson Lager
The local conservative radio talk show host's very traditional German lager is made with only pure ingredients (wink wink).
Little Big Hooters
In honor of local chainlet Little Big Burger's recent sale to the company that owns Hooters, a ketchup-and-wing-sauce-flavored beer that still tastes better than Rogue's Voodoo Doughnut Bacon Maple Ale.
Everclear Brand Everclear
Rogue also makes distilled spirits. Wake up with a soul patch and a lifetime of regret.
HEAR IT: Rogue's Blunt n' Bitter beer will be introduced as part of Colin Cowherd's appearance on the Primetime With Isaac and Big Suke radio show, KFXX-AM 1080 "The Fan," on Friday, Aug. 28. 3-7 pm.
