(Portland, OR) – The latest update from Cascade Brewing, courtesy of Tuesday’s email blast…
We will be holding the worldwide bottle & draft release of 2012 Figaro this Thursday, July 11 at 4:30pm PDT at the Barrel House, the Raccoon Lodge AND online. Price is $25 each, with a limit of 4 bottles per person. This NW style sour ale is a strong blond ale aged in Chardonnay barrels for 12 months, then additionally aged with dried white figs and lemon peel for up to 12 months. Aromas of sweet figs, golden raisins and citrus zest are noticed up front. Hints of white wine grapes, lemon peel and sweet figs roll across the palate, leading to crisp lemon tartness in the finish that leaves a lingering sweetness on the tongue. For online sales, visit .
We will be holding the worldwide bottle & draft release of 2012 Tangerine Dream NW next Thursday, July 18 at 4:30pm PDT at both the Barrel House and the Raccoon Lodge. Sorry, there are NO online sales for this beer. Price is $30 each, with a limit of 4 bottles per person. This easy drinking NW style sour spiced old ale was aged in rum barrels for 20 months with tangerine zest, then blended with our aged Apricot Ale. Sweet aromas of tangerine and rum are the first thing you notice as you draw your glass near. A quenching sweet citrus and rum spice take turns dancing on your palate. Rich rum spice and warmth lead to a lingering sweet tangerine finish. Most rum beers only go to 10, ours goes to 11!
These bottle releases are subject to change with little or no notice; follow us on Facebook or Twitter for up to date info.
