Cascade Brewing has collaborated with Far Yeast Brewing Co. from Yamanashi, Japan on Kagua Sour. This new release will debut on draft and in 500mL bottes on Friday, March 13th at both Cascade Brewing locations. Then, beginning at 6:00pm, Cascade Brewing Barrel House will host the release party for Kagua Sour with a live barrel tapping.
Kagua Sour is a sour beer interpretation of Far Yeast Brewing Co.’s award-winning Kagua Rouge. Featuring a blend of red ales aged in red wine barrels with Japanese sansho pepper and yuzu peel, Kagua Sour offers complex notes of fresh citrus, spicy green peppercorn and roasted red malt. Richard Leglise, a Cascade alum who now works for Far Yeast Brewing, will be in attendance. The release party will also serve Far Yeast Brewing’s award-winning Kagua Rogue, a Japanese-inspired ale brewed in Belgium that features notes of spicy sansho, roasted malt and hops, with a slightly bitter yet creamy finish.
Cascade Brewing Barrel House will offer two special food pairings that complement Kagua Sour. One dish is Chicken Karaage, a Japanese style fried chicken featuring marinated chicken thigh pieces dredged in seasoned flour potato starch then fried golden in peanut oil and served with honey kewpie dipping sauce. The other dish is a Japanese style pickled vegetable small plate featuring carrots, cucumbers, daikon radish and cabbage, all brined in a sweet/salty rice vinegar mixture and topped with toasted black sesame seeds.
