Cascade Brewing (Portland, Oregon) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release Honey Ginger Lime and Honeycot on Friday August 7.
Known to be two of Cascade Brewing’s most popular Northwest Sour Ales at its Portland-area pubs, Honey Ginger Lime and Honeycot will now finally be packaged for the “first time in the brewery’s history” and venture out for full distribution. Here’s the full rundown on these two incredibly thirst-quenching brews (descriptions sourced directly from the brewery’s press release):
- Honey Ginger Lime – A sour rye ale aged in oak barrels and foudres for up to 10 months with candied ginger and lime zest, followed by a late infusion of fresh ginger, more lime and local wildflower honey. Lightly sour with a kiss of honey sweetness, Honey Ginger Lime offers an ideal balance of complexity and refreshment. ABV – 6%
- Honeycot – A sour blond ale aged in oak wine barrels for up to 16 months with fresh Northwest-grown apricots and a late addition of local wildflower honey. ABV – 7.1%
Cans of Honey Ginger Lime and Honeycot will hit Cascade’s two Portland pubs – Cascade Brewing Barrel House and Lodge at Cascade Brewing – on August 7 and distribution will follow shortly after the on-site release. You can expect to find both of these Limited Releases available in 12 oz. cans at select craft beer-focused establishments located Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of Cascade Brewing’s distribution area. Prost!
