Cascade Brewing and Bruery Terreux Set to Release One Way or Another Collaboration

OWOAbottleCascade Brewing (Portland, Oregon) and Bruery Terreux (Anaheim, California) have officially announced plans to begin the release of One Way or Another, a collaboration Sour Ale, on Tuesday, September 12.

Back in the spring of 2016, folks from Bruery Terreux ventured up to Cascade Brewing’s facility in Portland to “discuss the blend and to brew the first batch of what was to become One Way or Another.”  What they came up with was “a blend of sour triple ales aged in oak wine barrels for up to 16 months with regional ingredients including Oregon marionberries and California Meyer lemons.”  The Bruery Terreux crew eventually returned home to replicate the recipe on their own system.  Both interpretations of One Way or Another are now ready for release, and “the two brewery projects feature different labels and graphics to delineate between the two.”

“We are so excited to finally release this project with Bruery Terreux,” exclaimed Tim Larrance, Cascade Brewing vice president of sales and marketing. “With each brewery crafting their own blend, this limited offering illustrates how a single recipe can be interpreted One Way or Another.”

Cascade Brewing’s version of One Way or Another will officially debut at a Release Party at its Barrel House in Portland on September 12.  This Tier One release will also be available in 750ml bottles and on draft at select craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of Cascade’s distribution network.  The Bruery Terreux version will also be available in 750ml bottles and on draft during the same release time frame, and you can find it through that brewery’s own distribution channels.  Prost!

Bruery Terreux Introduces Frederick H. as Newest Year-Round Beer

fredbruerybottleOn Friday, December 2, Frederick H. Berlin-style Tart Wheat Beer officially began its public launch as the latest year-round offering available from Bruery Terreux (Anaheim, California).

With the introduction of Frederick H., Bruery Terreux – a boutique craft brewery and extension of The Bruery that specializes in farmhouse-style wild and sour ales – continues the gradual expansion of their year-round portfolio.  Named after Founder & CEO Patrick Rue’s grandfather, Frederick Hottenroth, Frederick H. arrives as “a tart, wheat-based beer 100% fermented in American-made oak foeders.”  These “massive oak foeders can each hold 250 BBLs (7750 gallons) of beer, which is continuously pulled out in small amounts as the tanks are topped off with fresh wort.”  This approach makes it so the brewers can create a “characterful sour beer that’s full of flavor and racy on the palate.”

“My grandfather was a brilliant inventor. He had a mind for innovation, for knowing the future. I remember him explaining global warming to me in the late ‘80s — and to be honest, we didn’t know what the hell he was talking about. Like Fred, Frederick H. is unique, inventive yet traditional,” shares Patrick Rue. “The fermentation is 100% in oak foeders with a special blend of brettanomyces and lactobacillus, giving Frederick H. a bright acidity and a tropical, fruity aroma and flavor. Each batch benefits from the contributions of previous batches, as it’s fermented and aged in a process resembling the solera method.”

Frederick H. joins Saison Rue Brettanomyces-fermented Rye Saison and Beret Sour Imperial Witbier aged in Oak Barrels with Raspberries as one of three year-round releases available in 2017.  The public release of Frederick H. began on December 2 at all Tasting Room locations for The Bruery and at  With availability in 750ml bottles and on draft, this offering will then be sent out for national release later in December.  Look for this one to turn up at craft beer-friendly retailers, restaurants and bars located in Florida and throughout the rest of the distributed regions of Bruery Terreux.  Prost!
