About Cascade Brewing & the Cascade 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 brewery currently houses more than 750 French oak, Kentucky Bourbon and Northwest wine barrels 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 Cascade Brewery Barrel House - or House of Sour - which features more than 18 rotating taps, with a predominantly sour lineup at any given time. We also offer a number of bottled products, all available at the source and some available online. We are proud to have recently received a rare score of 100 on Beer Advocate, a world-class rating.
