On Friday, December 7, Cascade Brewing (Portland, Oregon) will host a 20th Anniversary Celebration that will feature the very special release of Bourbonic Plague (2016).
To commemorate a milestone anniversary that marks two decades of brewing incredible Northwest Sour Ales, Cascade Brewing will throw a 20-Year Celebration on Friday, December 7, from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. at The Lodge at Cascade Brewing (located at 7424 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy | Portland, Oregon). This event will feature “raffles, games, cupcakes, brewery tours, a birthday toast, and select menu items from the brewery’s 1998 menu.” Guests in attendance will also have the opportunity to “chat with [Art Larrance, founder of Cascade Brewing,] and Cascade’s brewing team.”
This event will also act as the exclusive bottle and draft release for Cascade’s Bourbonic Plague (2016). This highly-coveted, fan favorite offering is “a blend of sour imperial porters aged in bourbon and wine barrels for up to two years with dates, cinnamon, vanilla and orange peel.” This release will mark “the first time in seven years Cascade has bottled Bourbonic Plague, and each [750ml bottle] will be individually numbered in this extremely limited project.”
In addition to the 20-Year Celebration at The Lodge at Cascade Brewing, Bourbonic Plague will also be released in 750ml bottles and on draft at “Cascade’s Eastside location, The Cascade Brewing Barrel House, starting Dec. 10. [Bourbonic Plague] will only be available at Cascade’s two Portland area pubs and will not be made available via distribution.” Prost!
