Boondocks honors Rose with cherry brew

August 26, 2013

West Jefferson Police Chief and Boondocks patron Jeff Rose recently asked the management jokingly when they were going to name a beer after him. Friday afternoon, brewmaster Gary Brown rolled out a 10-gallon batch of Chief’s Cherry Stout, a limited roasted malt and tart cherry brew in honor of West Jefferson’s omnipresent beat cop.
