With farms in Independence and Tygh Valley, Oregon – Rogue Ales & Spirits is an agricultural based brewery and distillery, growing more than a dozen ingredients for its beers and spirits including seven varieties of hops, two varieties of malting barley, rye, honey, pumpkins, jalapeños and marionberries.
We floor malt and micro malt our barley and rye at the Farmstead Malt House in Tygh Valley; kiln, cool and bale our hops at our farm in Independence; as well as roast and smoke our malts and jalapeños at our Brewery in Newport, Oregon.

About Rogue Ales & Spirits
Rogue is a small revolution, which expresses itself through handcrafted Ales, Porters, Stouts, Lagers and Spirits, and this is the way we conduct our business. The spirit of the Rogue brand, even the name, suggests doing things differently, a desire and a willingness to change the status quo. A Rogue Ale, Porter, Stout, Lager or Spirit is crafted to give it unique character, innovative in its makeup and brewing, a process that has not compromised quality. We believe if a Rogue Ale, Porter, Stout, Lager or Spirit cannot be all of these things, it should not be made at all. For more information please visit Rogue Ales on the web.
