Just as we celebrate Killer Bend Fest today at Orenco Taphouse for Killer Beer Week, news came into us for a a new beer release from Cascade Lakes Brewing. The Bend based brewery announced the release of Paddleboard Porter. This Porter is inspired by the world class river and lake paddle boarding in Central Oregon.
Paddleboard Porter is a medium bodied robust style porter with chocolate and black malt roast character. It finishes extremely dry on the palate with a hint of the Willamette Hops. This beer will be available in six packs and 50-liter draft kegs throughout Washington, Oregon, and Idaho.
This beer utilizes 2-row, chocolate and crystal malts accented by Willamette hops bringing a subtle 34 IBU’s and 5.4% alcohol by volume.
“Paddleboard Porter is a fantastic anytime ale whether you are just getting off the river or pairing it with a steak or barbecue,” said Chris Justema, president and partner, Cascade Lakes. “We have been brewing and producing porters, ales and lagers for over 20 years and we feel this is a great example of our experience.”
