Cascade Brewing (Portland, Oregon) confirmed today that Sang Royal (2016), a Barrel-aged Red Ale with Pinot Noir Grapes, will make a limited return on November 14.
Back after a three-year hiatus, Sang Royal is “a blend of double red ales aged in oak barrels, foudres and puncheons for up to 22 months with Pinot Noir grapes from Oregon’s famed Willamette Valley wine region.” Often referred to as “the most sophisticated” of Cascade Brewing’s “Sang” projects, the 2016 vintage of Sang Royal “captures complex notes of summer berry fruit, plum, cola, earth and spice, with a vibrant acidity and soft tannic structure.”
Sang Royal 2016 officially releases on Tuesday, November 14 and will be available in 750ml bottles and on draft while supplies last. Once released, this Tier Two offering will be available at select craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of Cascade Brewing’s regular distribution channels.
