(Portland, OR) – Here is the latest from Cascade Brewing Co., courtesy of this week’s newsletter.
Join us for today’s Tap It Tuesday at 6 pm for LIVE: Straight Double Red. This NW style sour double red ale was aged for seven months in French oak wine barrels. Aromas of dark red wine, raisins and red grape skins are noticed up front. Notes of sweet red grapes and caramel with hints of hazelnuts on the palate lead to a finish of bright red currants and cherries. Believe it or not, there is no fruit or spicing in this beer. 7.5% ABV, $6.5/glass.
If you can’t make it in person but want to check out our Tap It Tuesdays, follow Cascade Brewing Barrel House on Google+. Join the Hangout before with insights from Head Blender Preston Weesner, then watch the tapping broadcast live at 6pm.

Kriek 2011 is bottle conditioning and we are looking for an early October release. The Noyaux blend is in the tank and undergoing final blending. There are still a few cases left of Figaro, but it’s going fast. 750 ml bottles sell for $25 and there is a limit of two bottles per person. There are NO online sales for Figaro due to limited quantities. It is only available at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House and the Raccoon Lodge.
