We’re excited to host Cascade Brewing Barrel House from Portland, Oregon on Saturday, February 11th with a very special selection of rare sour beers on tap!
Cranberry – ABV: 7%
This NW style sour wheat ale was barrel aged for up to 12 months with cranberries, orange peel and cinnamon. Soft aromas of cranberries and light floral notes start this beer off. Tart, dry notes of sweet cranberries with hints of wild strawberries on the palate give way to a pronounced dryness and a lingering finish of cranberries and spice.
Strawberry – ABV: 7.1%
This NW style sour ale is a blend of wheat and blond ales aged oak wine barrels with strawberries and vanilla beans for up to twelve months. Bright and crisp, the 2015 strawberry captures the essence of fresh strawberries with subtle notes of oak, vanilla, and fruit preserves.
Pumpkin – ABV: 11.4%
This NW style sour old ale is no trick, it’s all treat. We smashed and triple roasted 50 lbs of pumpkin down to 6 lbs, then aged the beer for 11 months on the roasted pumpkin in rum barrels. The aromas of spiced rum, mingled with the soft notes of roasted pumpkin, are notice up front. Spice, roasted pumpkin and rum is followed by a soft warming from within. Be warned, you might get pumpkin smashed!
Blueberry – ABV: 7.33%
This NW style sour ale blends wheat & blond ales that were oak aged in barrels for 6 mths, then additionally aged 4 mths on fresh blueberries. Huge herbal notes of dense blueberries in the nose give way to hints of oak & a dusty floral note. Rich earthy notes of dark fruit on the palate lead to a tart finish that dries out to a base note of blueberry skins.
Noyaux – ABV: 8.94%
This NW style sour ale features blonds and triples aged on oak for 18 to 24 months, then additionally aged for 12 months on raspberries and apricot noyaux.
Sang Royal – ABV: 10.12%
This NW style sour ale was made with various red ales that were aged in oak with Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, then blended with red ales that were aged in Port and Pinot Noir barrels.
