8th Annual Sour Fruit Fest
The 8th annual Sour Fruit Fest will feature more than four-dozen exclusive Cascade sour fruit beers on rotation throughout the week, with at least 25 sour beers on tap each day at the Barrel House, and at least 20 at The Lodge. The event takes place from open to close daily, Wednesday through Sunday, at both locations. Admission is free, beer tasting costs additional.
“The combination of sour beer and fruit is really at the heart of our blending program at Cascade Brewing, and we work incredibly hard to incorporate a wide variety of ingredients throughout the year,” explained Kevin Martin, Director of Brewing Operations. “Our Sour Fruit Fest is really a culmination of those efforts and celebrates the creativity of our team and the agricultural bounty of our region.”
The following beers will headline each day at both pubs: Pineapple Rosemary Sour on Wednesday, Fruitopian Noyaux on Thursday, Nectarine Dream on Friday (with a live tapping at the Barrel House that night at 6pm), Honeycot on Saturday, and Collab Day on Sunday––featuring Pearpawsterous (Upland Brewing Co.), One Way or Another (Bruery Terreux), Chêne Des Fous (Burial Beer Co.), and a sneak preview of a collaboration with Beachwood Brewing.
Throughout the week, fans can look forward to tasting dozens of sour fruit beers, including Vitis Melonious, Crème de Peches, Oregon Berry Live, Kriek Blanc, Kriek 15, Orange Bourbonic, Tangerine Dream, Blimeberry, Daytona Delight, Shrieking Violet 16, Noyaux 15, Crazy Navel, Manhattan 15, Cherry Vlad, Plumcot, Et tu Fruitis, Ruby Red, and Marionberry Spritzer.
Vintage bottles will be available for sale, as well as merchandise. Follow the brewery on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for real time updates on the beer schedule.
The Lodge at Cascade Brewing is the ideal place to hold a special event! Whether it’s an intimate gathering at our Back Bar or a large party in our outdoor Beer Garden, we will work to make it an affair to remember.
The Back Bar is a long, narrow semi-private room off the main bar in the upstairs dining room. This area can seat 18 to 20 for dinner. Because of its shape, it is better suited for sit-down affairs rather than mix and mingle gatherings. We recommend guests order off the regular menu or an abbreviated version. There is no rental fee but we do expect guests to eat and drink. The Den is also available during the week for lunch meetings from 11:30am to 3:30pm. Please call ahead to reserve.
Our beautiful outdoor Beer Garden features a covered concrete pad adjacent to a large grassy area surrounded by large trees. There are 30 picnic tables throughout. Because it is outdoors, this area is offered on “weather permitting” basis. This space does not have heaters. The Beer Garden can accommodate a buffet, appetizer platters, an abbreviated menu, or our regular menu. We require a guarantee of sales based on the size and nature of your event.
Our entire restaurant is non-smoking, and all areas are wheelchair accessible. Minors are allowed in both event areas. If you have any questions or are interested in booking an event, please call our restaurant manager, Lisa Crombie, at 503-296-0110, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
