PORTLAND, Ore. – The Cascade Brewing Barrel House is celebrating its seventh anniversary with a long weekend of special and vintage Cascade beers on draught. The event will take place at the House of Sour, located at 939 SE Belmont St., Friday, Sept. 29 through Sunday, Oct. 1. The Barrel House opens at Noon daily, closing at 12am on Friday and Saturday, and 11pm on Sunday through Thursday.
Cascade has teamed up with Stumptown Coffee Roasters for Stumptown Bourbonic, a variation of the brewery’s award-winning Bourbonic Plague. Stumptown Bourbonic features imperial spiced porters aged for up to 22 months in bourbon barrels with vanilla beans, then blended with coffee from Stumptown’s Cold Brew division just before packaging. This extremely limited anniversary project offers intense flavors of coffee, chocolate, bourbon and vanilla, with a mild acidity and warming finish.
The brewery will also be tapping Watermill, a bourbon barrel aged imperial porter collaboration project between Cascade Brewing and Browerij de Molen, inspired by de Molen’s acclaimed Tsarina Esra Imperial Porter. The flavorful creation offers sublime layers of chocolate, licorice and vanilla are blanketed with a citrusy bourbon finish.
Joining the specialty lineup will be Cascade’s popular Diesel, an Imperial Stout aged for up to seven months in Heaven Hill bourbon and Pinot barrels with vanilla beans, resulting in a decadent cornucopia of flavors and aromas – including dark chocolate, vanillin and licorice – with bourbon soaked dark fruit and tobacco undertones.
There will be a special live barrel tapping on Friday, Sept. 29 at 6pm. The event will also offer food pairing specials and vintage bottle sales throughout the weekend. View the complete tap list in real time at http://www.cascadebrewingbarrelhouse.com.
