The Beers and the Bees

Rogue Honey Kolsch & Marionberry Braggot return for spring.


Rogue Ales & Spirits salutes its pollinators with the early release of Honey Kolsch and Marionberry Braggot, both made with honey produced by its 7,140,289 honeybees on Rogue Farms.

“Pollinators are not only an essential part of our farm but also crucial to the whole company — they impact a quarter of our products,” said Rogue Ales President Brett Joyce. “Bees take care of us, so we take care of them.”

Rogue Farms honeybees feed on nectar from marionberry, cherry, pumpkin, jalapeño and wildflower blossoms, creating a honey that captures the terroir of the Rogue’s farm, located in Oregon’s Willamette Valley. It’s a symbiotic relationship between the bees and the farm; pollinating improves the quality and productivity of the crops, while Rogue Farms provides a healthy environment for the bees. Rogue Beer Farmer Cheryl Gillson explains what the bees mean to Rogue in this National Honey Board video.
