Newport, OR – In a bold collaboration with Mother Nature, Rogue Ales announces the launch of its new Hop Family series of IPAs, celebrating all 8 varietals of hops grown at Rogue Farms. It’s a family of 4 distinct IPAs, each a unique blend of hops personally selected by Rogue Brewmaster John Maier. The Hop Family is comprised of 4 Hop IPA, 6 Hop IPA, 7 Hop IPA and 8 Hop IPA.
“We wanted to offer the wide range of flavors, aromas and bitterness of the 8 varieties of hops we’ve grown at Rogue Farms,” said Maier. “It’s the entire Rogue hop experience in four bottles.”
Rogue grows its own hops on a 42-acre hopyard on the banks of the Willamette River in Independence, Oregon. The 8 varieties include Alluvial, Freedom, Independent, Liberty, Newport, Rebel, Revolution, and Yaquina hops. Each year, Rogue Farms strings, stakes, trains, trims, separates, sorts, kilns, cools and bales the hops it grows before sending them to the Rogue Brewery in Newport, Oregon.
The entire Hop Family will be available January 2016 in 22 oz bottles. The bottles are serigraphed with field guide style drawings to distinguish the hops in each IPA. For more information about Growing the Revolution visit the brewery’s website.
