Cascade Brewing is set to release Framboise Northwest 2019, a brand-new Northwest Sour Ale project in time for Labor Day Weekend. Framboise Northwest will be available in draft kegs and in 500ml champagne bottles with a cork and wire hood beginning on Friday, September 4th.
Framboise Northwest is described as a Northwest-style interpretation of the traditional raspberry ales of the old world. This framboise is a blend of sour blond ales aged in oak wine barrels for up to two years with locally grown raspberries. Clean, tart and packed with fresh fruit flavor, this ruby red sour beer blend celebrates the bountiful berry farms of the Pacific Northwest. It comes in at 7.9% ABV.
Beginning on Friday, September 4th, Framboise Northwest will be available locally at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House, The Lodge at Cascade Brewing, and online at CascadeBrewing.shop for local pickup only. Framboise Northwest will be made available through the brewery’s distribution network beginning September 14th.
