Any organic ways to kill off grass and weeds in a rose bed? Or is it just rip it all out by hand and lay a good layer of mulch?

Rosebeds even with Organic weed control must be done with caution from my research, personally we would pull the weeds, put a 20 year landscape fabric down and mulch. Another interesting tip is to cover the rose bed with black plastic sheets or garbage bags. The heat from the sun will heat up anything under the plastic, and any plants/weeds under the sheets will die.
