Revenge Of The Slugs

You’re not going to believe this. We don’t quite believe it ourselves.

A few weeks ago we noticed that something odd was going on in our field of Dream Rye. Shoots were disappearing and being overtaken by grass. At first, it seemed like no big deal. The changes were subtle. But the shoots continued dying and the grass spread even further. Eventually we lost nearly all 20 acres of the Dream Rye we planted just a few months ago.

This is what happened.

Keeping An Eye On Our Dream

Look at what we found in the mail today, an article about the rebirth of rye whiskey featuring Brewmaster John Maier and Rogue Farms Oregon Rye Whiskey.

We admit to having a soft spot in our hearts for rye. It’s a hardy little grain that has never gotten the kind of respect that’s been afforded to barley, wheat and corn. Rye will grow under amazingly adverse conditions, but that toughness also gives rye an edgy, spicy flavor. It’s nice to see that craft spirits fans are starting to appreciate rye as much as we do.

Our Rogue Farms Dream Rye will be harvested in summer, floor malted and micro-malted at our Farmstead Malt House in Tygh Valley, then mashed, fermented, brewed and distilled at our Brewery and Distillery in Newport into our next batches of Oregon Rye Whiskey and Roguenbier Rye Ale. Open a bottle and taste for yourself the unique flavor of the Rogue of grains.
