Rogue Farms Honey Kolsch Hits Stores July 1, 2013
Independence, OR – Just in time for summer, Rogue Ales & Spirits is releasing Rogue Farms Honey Kolsch made with honey grown and harvested at the Rogue Farms Hopyard in Independence, Oregon.
The Rogue honeybees spend their days sampling the flavors of the farm and absorbing the terroir of the Wigrich Appellation. From blackberries, raspberries and cherries; to woodruff, lavender and pumpkins; to rye and corn – the honey they produce is a taste of the terroir of the Wigrich Appellation.
In early 2013 Rogue Farms grew its Apiary from the original 19 Colonies to just over 100. The new population will be busily producing nearly 5,000 pounds of honey, which will be used in every batch of Rogue Farms Honey Kolsch.
The new yellow painted 750mL bottles will be available for purchase nationwide on July 1st.
Rogue Ales is dedicated to saving the terroir of Oregon hops, barley, honey, pumpkins, rye, jalapenos and bees one acre at a time by growing its own. The Rogue GYO 214 acre Barley Farm is located in Oregon’s Tygh Valley Appellation and Rogue’s 42 acre Hopyard is located in Oregon’s Wigrich Appellation.
