Rogue Ales' Hop Farm in the NY Times ~ Hop N Bed

Have you ever wanted to visit a hop farm ~ connect to the land where the lupulin grows?

Rogue Ales has just the answer, its called the Rogue Farms Hop N Bed (a rustic farm version of a bed & breakfast), located on the former John Haas Alluvial Hop Farm in
Independence, which is in the heart of Oregon's hop growing region. Spend the night in a 100 year old farmhouse that was once a boarding school for children working on the farm, enjoy Chocolate Stout pancakes in the morning, take a tour the hop museum, watch the hops grow on the 42 acre farm and picnic along the banks of the Willamette River.

Rogue Farms' Hop N Beer was part of an article,
Make your Beer and Drink it, too in The New York Times Travel Section on February 28, 2010 article, page 8:

In the Pacific Northwest, Rogue Ales, one of the more celebrated American craft breweries, has a six-bedroom house on its 42-acre hops farm in Independence, Ore. Brett Joyce, president of the brewery, said that staying there gives visitors a chance to better experience one of beer’s main ingredients. “We even have a wedding scheduled there next summer,” he added.
