(PORTLAND, Ore. –– June 5, 2020) –– Cascade Brewing has announced the release of three beers: Cascade IPA and Caught Pale Handed Hazy IPA in 16-ounce cans, available now; and Apricot 2019, releasing in 500ml bottles and on draft on June 10.
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 will also be released through the company’s distribution network, while the canned products will be available via self-distribution.
