Whaddup Sour Heads!
While I'm still embracing this sour style pretty much everyone else is lovin’, I can respect it and Cascade Brewing knows how to brew ‘em!
Straight outta Portland, Oregon, Cascade has released its highly anticipated Sang Noir 2016 project in both bottle and on tap (if you’re lucky).
Here’s their breakdown straight from the source:
Sang Noir is a blend of imperial red ales aged in bourbon and wine barrels for up to two years with Bing cherries. The darkest in Cascade's series of “Sang” projects, Sang Noir features flavors of dark roast malts, bourbon, black cherries and port wine. It comes in at 10.1 percent alcohol by volume.
Sang Noir is a Tier Two offering; Cascade’s new bottles have distinct label styles for each of the three Cascade Brewing pricing tiers, with each label within the tier utilizing distinctive colors to clearly differentiate each beer. The tiers differ by the style of beer used in the product, the type ingredients contained within, the time aged in the barrels and types of barrels used.
Cascade Brewing also let us know that they have two upcoming releases in September: One Way or Another, plus a collab with Bruery Terreux that drops on September 12th and the Vitis Noble 2016 on the 19th.
Oh, and I love Cascade’s “About Us” joint. Check it:
