Pumpkins by Phihl Markel

Celebrate Rogue Agri-Fermenter’s Dinner

Rogue Harvest Dinner

The hops have been picked, stripped, sorted, kilned, cooled and baled.
The pumpkins have been harvested, chopped, and roasted in pizza ovens.
The jalapenos have been hand-picked and smoked.
The barley has been reaped, threshed and winnowed.
The marionberries have been trained and the honeybees have hunkered down.

Return to the original location of the very first Barley’s Angels gathering in 2011 and celebrate the Rogue Farms Harvest with us! Eat and drink your way through this year’s bounty, learning about each beer and spirit Rogue grew for each course.

Updated menu:

Halibut Ceviche
Paired with Wet Hop Ale

Rogue Brewmaster John Maier selected Yaquina hops from the harvest at Rogue Farms for this year’s Wet Hop Ale, and the bright hop flavor really shines through. Enjoy the freshest possible tastes of Oregon terroir, from both land and sea with this pairing.

Smoked Salmon Stuffed Mushroom
Paired with Pumpkin Patch Ale

Per Mother Nature, our pumpkins ripened early with the summer heat wave, so we hand-picked them, drove 77 miles to the brewery, where we chopped, roasted, and brewed them to make our Pumpkin Patch Ale slightly ahead of schedule. Celebrate the harvest and enjoy the flavors of fall from foragers, fermenters and fishermen.

Ancho-Cayenne-Coffee Rubbed Flank Steak
Paired with a Boiler Maker made with Chipotle Ale and Whiskey

Grow ’em and smoke ’em if you got ’em! We grow and smoke our own Chipotle peppers to add a little kick to our Chipotle Ale and Whiskey, which will bring a little heat to this pairing. Who says you can’t grow jalapenos in Oregon? Dare. Risk. Dream.

Marionberry sorbet
Paired with Marionberry Braggot

We grow our own marionberries next to our 7,140,289 honeybees that provide our honey; a taste of the sweet side of the Wigrich Appellation terroir.
