Each park is honored with limited-edition cans inspired by Pendleton Woolen Mills’ National Parks Collection.

“The National Parks revolutionized the outdoors,” said Rogue President, Brett Joyce. “Rogue and our friends at Pendleton Woolen Mills collided to create Pendleton Pale Ale in a package that begs to be taken into the wild and shared with friends.”

“Pendleton joins Rogue Ales in a celebration of our National Parks. Pendleton Pale Ale in four stunning stripe graphics take their cue from Pendleton’s National Park Stripe blankets. Rogue’s tribute to the national parks adds a special splash to sharing good times while remembering our American treasures,” commented Mort Bishop, Pendleton President.

Learn to string and train hops with Rogue beer farmer Cher Gillson

ORIGINALLY PUBLISHED ON CRAFTBREWINGBUSINESS.COM

Rogue Farms holds a special place in our collective beer-filled hearts. We’ve made multiple tripsout to the Independence, Oregon, farmstead to learn about the science and culture of growing hops at Rogue’s 52-acre yard; the farm also cultivates everything from marionberries and pumpkins to hazelnuts and honey, all of which is used in the craft brewing and distilling of Rogue Ales and Spirits. Rogue Beer Farmer Cher Gillson has become a special envoy for the CBB Nation (which is not unlike the Rogue Nation), providing this trade website with not only vast amounts of beer farming knowledge every time we see her (or e-mail her), but also food, shelter and copious amounts of craft delicacies every time we visit. Watch Gillson both above and below teach us about the hop farming process.
