Beer begins in the dirt. In a bold collaboration with Mother Nature, we grow 7 varieties of aroma hops at Rogue Farms in Independence, OR. We also string, stake, train, test, trim, separate, sort, kiln and cool them. Brewmaster John Maier had 7 varieties available, but rather than picking from among them, he chose all 7 to create a proprietary palate for 7 Hop IPA.
Rogue Ales grew from a brewpub along Ashland, Oregon’s Lithia Creek in 1988 to a small revolution, expressing itself through handcrafted ales, porters, stouts, and lagers. The name Rogue, and the spirit of the brand, suggests doing things differently, and a desire and a willingness to change the status quo. Innovative in its makeup and brewing, each Rogue beverage is crafted to give it unique character.
