TYGH VALLEY, OREGON – The 2011 harvest of Rogue GYO (Grow Your Own) Certified Risk™ and Dare™ malting barley just wrapped up and everything points to another A+ year.
Lab results show that the barley, grown on the Rogue Farms Micro Barley Farm in the terroir of Oregon’s Tygh Valley Appellation, will hit ideal specifications for plump, protein and moisture. 200 acres of Risk™ and Dare™ malting barley were harvested this year and preparations are underway to seed next year’s winter malting barley crop.
“It’s an exciting thing to see the start of what will be next year’s Oregon Single Malt Whiskey” said Rogue Spirits President Beth Gilden. “This is just the beginning of a long, hands-on process for us. The barley that we grow here will be malted, smoked, milled, brewed into a whiskey mash, distilled, smithed, aged, and bottled all by us before it ends up in a glass, so I was anxious to get the barley out of the ground and get the whiskey going.” Despite the time and energy it takes, growing their own ingredients allows Rogue to ensure the quality and flavor profile of their spirits.
Rogue began distilling in 2003. Every Rogue spirit is distilled, smithed, and bottled by hand. Each spirit reflects Rogue’s unique terroir from the Tygh Valley appellation in the rain shadow of Mt. Hood to the Pacific Ocean in Newport, OR.

INDEPENDENCE, OR, August 23, 2010 — Rogue Ales has begun our annual harvest of GYO Certified hops from the Rogue Farms Micro Hopyard in Oregon’s Wigrich Appellation. We honor our cultivation, growth, and harvest by using 5 different varieties and 2,200lbs of fresh hops from our 42-acre farm to create this year’s Chatoe Rogue Wet Hop Ale.
Like any farmer sowing seed in soil, the success of our hops lies a great deal in the hands of Mother Nature. Master Brewer John Maier had planned to add a sixth variety to the brew, but our Alluvial Hops did not produce this year.
After being cut from the trellises, the hop cones are separated and loaded into 250lb burlap sacks, driven 77 miles to the Brewery in Newport, OR, and immediately pitched into the brew kettle. Total elapse time: approximately 2 hours, 17 minutes.
Wet Hop Ale is brewed with 11 ingredients: Carawheat, Carafoam, and Rogue Micro Barley Farm DareTM & RiskTM Malts; Rogue Micro Hopyard first growth Freedom, Revolution,
Independent, Rebel, & Liberty Hops; Pacman Yeast & Free Range Coastal Water.
Wet Hop Ale will be available in select markets on October 1st, 2010. Rogue remains dedicated to saving the terroir of Oregon hops and barley, one acre at a time, by growing our own.
