Rogue Ales & Spirits Introduced its Newest Taste Sensation

Oregon’s Rogue Ales & Spirits has introduced its newest taste sensation: Marionberry Sour. The violet-hued ale is made with prickless marionberries grown on Rogue’s farm in Newport, Oregon. Marionberries were created by Oregon State University researchers back in 1956 and are a regional favorite because they are a larger, more flavorful variety of blackberry. Rogue Ales & Spirits is the only farmerbrewer-distiller-cooper in the United States. 

Built in 1909, the Montvale Event Center, located in Spokane, Washington, was formerly the home of an Independent Order of Odd Fellows Lodge. Over the years, it has also served as commercial space—housing both the Herring-Hall-Marvin Safe Company and the Riley Candy Company at different times— and dance halls, first the Metronome Dance Hall from 1950 to 1953 and then the Hi-Spot Dance Hall from 1954 to 1956.
