(PORTLAND, Ore. –– Feb. 12, 2020) –– As a Valentine’s Day gift to sour beer lovers, Cascade Brewing is releasing two sour beers on Friday, Feb. 14: Pear Mary and Kentucky Peach 2019.
An all new project, Pear Mary features a blend of sour blond ales aged in oak wine barrels then naturally fermented with juice from Northwest-grown pears and infused with fresh rosemary. Aged for up to 18 months, this refreshing herbal beer offers notes of fresh pear, pine and ginger with a balanced acidity, soft fruit sweetness and champagne-like effervescence. Pear Mary will be available in 500ml bottles and on draft through Cascade’s regular distribution network.
Kentucky Peach 2019 is a new vintage of a past favorite using fruit from 2019. Kentucky Peach is a blend of sour wheat and quad ales aged in bourbon and wine barrels for up to 16 months with fresh, Northwest-grown peaches. This limited project offers flavors of ripe peaches and warm bourbon with hints of oak and a light malt sweetness. Kentucky Peach will be available on draft only through limited distribution.
Both beers will be available starting Friday at Cascade Brewing’s two pubs: the Cascade Brewing Barrel House, at 939 SE Belmont St., just named one of the best brewpubs in the country by Rate Beer; and the original Lodge at Cascade Brewing at 7424 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy.
