Spend the night in a living piece of Oregon’s hop history.

The Rogue Farms Hop ‘N’ Bed was built in 1912 to house workers and their families of the Wigrich Ranch, which at the time was the largest hopyard in the world. Today, it’s the site of weddings, receptions and summer concerts. Relax on the front porch with one of our Rogue Farms ales, porters, lagers, stouts, mead, kolsch, braggot and spirits. The Hop ‘N’ Bed has 6 bedrooms and sleeps 14.

Rogue is reviving the lost art of floor malting and micro malting at the Farmstead Malt House. This is where we malt the barley and rye that we grew ourselves at our farms in Independence and Tygh Valley, Oregon.   Using artisan methods that date back centuries, we carefully steep, germinate, kiln and bag our Rogue Farms barley and rye malts by hand. Touching, seeing and sniffing the grain every step along the way tells us more about the quality of our malt than we’d ever get from a lab report.
Rogue Farms is open year round, but the hours and days of operation change according to the season. Currently, we’re on our winter schedule. Open: Wednesday – Sunday, 11:00am to 8:00pm Closed: Monday - Tuesday For the most up to date information please call us at (503) 838-9813 .
