From Bees To Bottle - Rogue Releasing Honey Kolsch & Marionberry Braggot

imageFrom Rogue:

Independence, OR – Rogue Ales celebrates its 7,140,289 honeybees with the release of Honey Kolsch and Marionberry Braggot, both made with honey foraged from Rogue Farms spring nectar sources including marionberry, cherry, jalapeƱo, cucumber, pumpkins and wildflower blossoms. The unique flavor found in this spring’s honey harvest is highlighted in both beer and braggot.

Each Rogue Farms honeybee will visit up to 1,500 flowers on a typical day gathering nectar and pollinating blossoms. Bees not only pollinate Rogue's proprietary palette of ingredients, they are also vital to maintaining the health of the food supply. Honeybees pollinate about one-third of the foods we eat.

“We wouldn’t be farmers without bees,” said Rogue Ales President Brett Joyce. “Pollinating everything from our marionberries to our pumpkins, and collecting nectar for our honey, our bees are the life force of Rogue Farms.”

Honey Kolsch and Marionberry Braggot will be available beginning in June. Honey Kolsch was awarded the 2015 Best in Show at the National Honey Board’s Honey Beer Competition and will be available in 22 oz serigraphed bottles, in 12 oz bottles and on draft. Marionberry Braggot comes in 750 ml painted bottles and on draft. For more information about Growing the Revolution visit rogue.com.
