Tree Rogue Woody

A White Oak Tree from Oregon’s Coast Range

NEWPORT, OR - The Rogue Ales & Spirits Do-It-Yourself Revolution is growing with the creation of Rolling Thunder Barrel Works, a tree to table outfit that will bring the old-world tradition of barrel cooperage to the Rogue World Headquarters in Newport, Oregon.

 

“We are thrilled about Rolling Thunder Barrel Works,” says Rogue President Brett Joyce. “Making our own Oregon Oak Barrels will provide us with endless possibilities for aging our ales, porters, stouts, lagers, braggots, meads, gins, vodka, rums, and whiskeys. Coopering is a time-honored tradition and highly skilled craft that will have a great home in Newport. This adventure will be full of learning and discovery and while we’re not exactly sure what the final products will look like, we are certain that it’s going to be a lot of fun along the way.”

 

The white oak used to construct each barrel will be hand-selected from the centuries-old oak groves of the Oregon Coast Range, less than 100 miles from Newport.

 

Using Oregon White Oak furthers Rogue’s commitment to brewing and distilling with a proprietary palate of flavors; all of Rogue’s world-class beers and spirits are crafted with Rogue Farms ingredients grown on its two farms in Independence and Tygh Valley, Oregon.
