Three new beers from Cascade Brewing will be hitting the marketplace. The Portland brewer has just released both Cascade IPA and Caught Pale Handed Hazy IPA in 16-ounce cans, as Apricot 2019 will be released in 500mL bottles and on draft on Wednesday, June 10.
Here are descriptions on each of the new offerings from Cascade Brewing.
Cascade IPA is the brewery’s house India Pale Ale, with a rich orange color, citrusy hop aroma and sensible bitterness from Amarillo and Cascade hops (6.2% ABV).
Caught Pale Handed Hazy IPA is packed with Amarillo, Azacca and Ekuanot hops, allowing the drink to catch the overripe mango and guava flavors in the beer (6.2% ABV).
Apricot 2019 is a blend of sour blond ales aged in oak wine barrels for up to 14 months, then naturally fermented with Northwest-grown apricots and aged on the fruit for an additional six months before packaging (7.3% ABV). As one of the first and longest running blends in the brewery’s portfolio, Apricot has become a quintessential part of Cascade Brewing’s identity as a producer of Northwest sour ales.
All three beers will be available at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House and the Lodge at Cascade Brewing pubs, as well as through pre-order at CascadeBrewing.shop for local pickup and home delivery. Apricot 2019 will also be released through the company’s distribution network, while the canned products will be available via self-distribution.
