Grown And Brewed On The Rogue Hopyard

It’s brewing season at the Rogue Farms Hopyard.


Farmstead Brewer Josh Cronin created a Farmhouse style Saison that will go on tap in late March at the Chatoe Rogue. Cronin’s recipe includes Rogue DIY Dare™ Pilsner Malt made from the barley we grow at Rogue Farms in Tygh Valley, and Independent and Alluvial hops grown here at the Rogue Hopyard.

Traditionally, Saison beers were brewed in the winter and consumed in the summer to keep farm workers hydrated during the heat.

Other breweries make Saison style beer. But ours is made the old fashioned way, brewed on the farm where the ingredients are grown.
