Rogue Ales has always been an innovator in sustainable brewing practices. For years they have grown their own hops reducing the need to truck them in from commercial growers. Now, the brewing geniuses who brought us Beard Beer have canned an IPA that contains six different, brewery-grown hops. Learn more about Rogue 6 Hops IPA in the official press release below.
INDEPENDENCE, Ore. (Feb. 21, 2017) — In a dedication to Mother Nature, Rogue Ales has canned 6 Hop IPA to take this farm-grown beer back outside.
The six proprietary hop varietials chosen by Brewmaster John Maier to craft 6 Hop IPA were grown on Rogue’s 52-acre hopyard in the heart of the Willamette Valley. Field-guide-style illustrations on the bright green can depict the hops inside. From ground to glass to gold, 6 Hop IPA was awarded a gold medal at the 2016 World Beer Championships.
“It’s like having a piece of the farm in your hand,” said Rogue President Brett Joyce. “The aroma reminds us of the farm during hop harvest and the new cans are perfect for getting outside and wandering among the bines of the hopyard.”
6 Hop IPA’s big, beautiful bite is now available in 12-ounce can six-packs, 22-ounce bottles and on draft worldwide
