A Beer For Spring

Serving Beer_webOur first Farmstead beer of the season, a farmhouse style Saison, goes on tap tonight at the Chatoe Rogue Tasting Room.

This is a perfect beer for celebrating the spring season. The Saison style dates back centuries to the farms of Belgium and France. They were brewed in the winter months when work was slow, and then served to farm workers during the spring and summer to keep them happy and hydrated.

Although lots of breweries make Saison style beers, ours is made the traditional way, with ingredients that were grown on the farm where the beer was brewed. A true Farmstead beer.

For his Saison, Farmstead Brewer Josh Cronin used Rogue DIY Dare™ Pilsner Malt made from the barley we grow at Rogue Farms in Tygh Valley, and Independent and Alluvial hops grown here at the Rogue Hopyard.
