About Cascade Brewing Barrel House:
Tart, barrel-aged beers are the emerging beer style and Cascade Brewing is a pioneer of the NW style sour beer movement. We are, by nature, the definition of artisanal brewing: we’re not bound by stylistic guidelines, just our own imagination and the ingredients we can access. Our blending house currently houses more than 1,400 French oak, Kentucky Bourbon and Northwest wine barrels – plus nine foudres – filled with wheats, blonds, quads, reds, browns and porters that are aged and blended into magical elixirs. These beers have aggressive tart notes that are balanced by residual sugars, fruits, spices and the oak we use. We serve them all up for you at the Raccoon Lodge & Brew Pub in SW Portland, and at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House – aka House of Sour – in SE Portland, which features more than 24 rotating taps, with a predominantly sour lineup at any given time. We also offer a number of bottled products, all available at the source. We have received a number of medals from the Great American Beer Festival and a rare score of 100 on Beer Advocate, a world-class rating.
