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.
