Cascade Brewing (Portland, Oregon) has officially announced that the 2017 vintage of its One Way or Another project is slated for a Limited Release in April 2019.
Based upon the collaboration recipe that Cascade Brewing originally developed with Bruery Terreux, One Way or Another (2017) “combines whole, Northwest-grown marionberries and Meyer lemon zest with sour blond ale aged in oak barrels for up to 16 months.” Weighing in at 7.7% ABV, this blend of One Way or Another offers “notes of blackberry pastry, fresh citrus and spruce tips with a lively acidity and dry finish.”
One Way or Another (2017) debuted in Cascade Brewing’s two Portland pubs on April 5 and is scheduled to begin hitting distribution this week. You can expect to find this Tier One offering available in 500ml bottles and on draft at select craft beer-focused retailers, bars and restaurants located in Alabama, Florida, Oregon and throughout the rest of Cascade Brewing’s distribution network.

Cascade 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!
