Cascade Brewing (Portland, Oregon) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Nectarine Dream 2019 on Friday, July 10.
Releasing for the first time ever in bottles, Nectarine Dream 2019 (7.5% ABV) is a “blend of sour blond ales aged in oak barrels and foudres for up to 18 months, then naturally fermented with fresh, Northwest grown nectarines and aged on the fruit for an additional five months.” To ensure that the added fruit is represented properly in Nectarine Dream, the crew at Cascade “hand [processed] each piece of fruit to ensure full ripeness before adding it to the tank and [employed] traditional wine making techniques that help capture the purest expression of the nectarine as well as the time and place in which it was grown.”
Nectarine Dream 2019 will officially release at Cascade’s two Portland pubs – Cascade Brewing Barrel House and Lodge at Cascade Brewing – on July 10 and distribution will follow shortly after the on-site release. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 500ml bottles & on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of Cascade Brewing’s distribution area. Prost!
