Hops growing at Rogue Farm

Didn't realize this is what hops looks like when it's growing

We passed on this for Bridget

Rog and his Pumpkin Patch Ale

Me and my Left Coast wine (terrible haircut!)

Stopped here for the night after leaving the Oregon coast. We chose this spot because we wanted to go over to Independence OR to check out the Rogue Brewery farm and tasting room. At their farms, Rogue grows more than a dozen ingredients for their beer, spirits, cider and soda. Ten varieties of hops, two varieties of malting barley, rye, pumpkins, marionberries, jalapeños and honey make up the crops Rogue uses to create their craft beverages. Roger tried the Pumpkin Patch ale and said it was pretty good. I liked this place, too. They had wine for those of us who aren’t beer fans. I had a Pinot Noir from Left Coast winery. It was very good, too. Turns out Left Coast winery is in Rickreall. We didn’t know that, so now we have to come back, so we can go there. We were coming back anyway so we could take the farm tour at Rogue. We got there too late to take the tour this time. (Pictures include a great picture of Rog and horrible one of me.)
