July brings our new violet-hued sour ale, Marionberry Sour.
What is a marionberry you might ask? Marionberries are a bigger, juicier and more flavorful variety of blackberry. They were originally developed by Oregon State University researchers in 1956, just miles from Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon.
Marionberry Sour is our first sour made with all farm ingredients and a wonderful addition to Rogue Farms family. “We made Marionberry Sour this year because it celebrates the delicious berry we love so much,” says Rogue Brewmaster John Maier. “I’m constantly inspired to brew new beers based on the crops we grow at the farm. They come to the brewery at peak ripeness and I always know exactly how the crops were treated when I get them. That quality matters.”
Use the Rogue Finder to find Marionberry Sour in 6-pack 12 ounce bottles now until October. For the full farm experience, beer lovers can have a pint at Chatoe Rogue , a Rogue tasting room located on the farm. Guests can see the hops, fruits, vegetables and botanicals grown by Rogue farmers before they’re used in beers.
