ROGUE TO THE CORE
NEWPORT, OR, SEPTEMBER 23rd 2014 – Rogue Ales & Spirits has released two new craft ciders made from ingredients grown on Rogue Farms in Independence and Tygh Valley, Oregon.
Fruit Salad Cider: Fruit Salad Cider is inspired by Oregon’s rich fruit bounty. It’s packed with cherries and plums grown on Rogue’s own farm in Tygh Valley, Oregon, in addition to apples, pears, marionberries, peaches and apricots grown on rich Oregon soil. Fruit Salad Cider is a true taste of the terroir of Oregon.
7 Hop Cider: 7 Hop Cider is created with all seven varieties of aroma hops grown and harvested at Rogue Farms in Independence, Oregon. All seven are used to dry hop Rogue’s signature blend of heirloom and Newtown Pippin apple juice, resulting in a crisp, dry cider crafted with a proprietary palate of ingredients.
“We started crafting cider because we have the story of our Rogue Farms to share,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce.
“From ground to glass, Rogue Cider uses ingredients we grow on our two Oregon farms in Independence and Tygh Valley. We don’t just grow hops and malting barley- we’re growing fruit like cherries and plums so that you can taste the difference. Cider isn’t a trend for us; it’s another chance to share our ‘Grow Your Own’ Revolution.”
Rogue Cider 22oz serigraphed bottles are currently available for purchase at all Rogue Ales Public Houses and on rogue.com. Bottles and draft will be available in select markets nationwide beginning December 2014.
Rogue Ales & Spirits is an agri-fermenter founded in Oregon in 1988, as one of America’s first microbreweries. Rogue has won more than 1,400 awards for taste, quality and packaging and is available in all 50 states and 48 countries.
