Each Tuesday Cascade Brewing Barrel House (aka House of Sour) taps a new sour brew direct from the barrel. This past Tuesday was no exception as Brewmaster Ron Gansberg and Barrel House GM Preston Weesner hammered the tap in and unleashed the latest barrel offering: Busta Nut Sour Brown Ale, a sour brown ale aged in oak barrels for over a year. Fresh, non-soured sweet strong blonde was blended in to add high notes. It was curious to see the number of first-time patrons dropping by the House of Sour who were either coming from or heading to the ballot drop box just a half block up Belmont Street.
