Cascade Apricot
8.5% ABV‏ / Glass Our Apricot has the intense aroma of goldrich and rival apricots, slow ripened before being introduced to the beer. Based on a belgian tripel, this beer went through 16 months lactic fermentation and aging in french oak wine barrels, then rested on the fruit for four months before finishing
Cascade Kriek Ale
7.3% ABV / Glass Our kriek spends over six months in lactic fermentation and aging in oak barrels. This nw style sour red ale is fermented for eight months with fresh whole bing and sour pie cherries
Sang Rouge
Sang rouge: 8% ABV / Glass Aged up to 30 months in oak barrels, this ale is a blend of as many as nine lots of aged reds, resulting in a very deep, rich and complex sour
The Vine
8.3% ABV / Glass This nw style sour blends soured tripel, blonde and golden ales that were then fermented with the juice of white wine grapes. It's a delicious offering that appeals to both beer and wine drinkers
Bourbonic Plague
12% ABV / Glass This blend of strong dark porters was aged in oak, wine and bourbon barrels, then blended with a dark porter that had been brewed with vanilla beans and cinnamon. The blend was then aged an additional 14 months on dates
Vlad the Imp Aler
10.3% ABV / 6 IBU / Glass This strong nw sour is a blend of strong blonde quads and tripels aged in oak and bourbon barrels, then further blended with spiced blondes and left to condition for an additional five months
Summer Gose
Summer gose: 5% ABV / teardrop A traditional german, slightly sour, spiced summer wheat beer, this is our take on a twice lost and revived german beer style. It's light and golden with a slightly salty finish
Razberry Wheat
4.5% ABV / 18 IBU / teardrop This ruby pink wheat beer is crisp with a refreshing tartness and aroma of fresh raspberries
Spring Gose
4.5% Abv - Served in a Teardrop Our long awaited spring gose is a wheat beer made with German Pilsner malts. We brew it with chamomile, lemon peel, salt and both golden and purple culinary lavender flowers. Cascade's version of a spring tonic
Cascade IPA (India Pale Ale)
5.7 %‏ Abv, 60 IBU - Served in an imperial pint This light drinkable beer is a hop showcase. Bravo and Brewers Gold start it off with resins and spice that greet you in the nose. Brewers Gold, Perle and Calypso deliver a noticeable hop bite with a lingering spice that leaves you wanting another sip. Servus
Portland Ale (Pale)
Red Eye Rye
Cascade IPA
Goldbricker Blond (Pale)
Cascade Stout
Scarlet Fever Double Red Ale
Bain de Brugge
Saison de la Maison
The Vine (2011)
Spaghetti Squash Fragola
Spaghetti squash tossed in warm strawberry sourgrette with red onion, tomato, toasted pecan and green peas, topped with gorgonzola cheese
Pickled Quail Eggs and Speck
Sweet and dill pickled quail eggs, speck (smoked, cured pork), tart pink berry compote, portland ale crackers and our famous whipped dork fat, our blend of duck and pork
Cuban Panini
Featuring smoked ham, smoked pork, gruyere cheese and dill pickle on a brioche bun with dijonnaise, grilled until crisp

I knew the Cascade Brewing Barrel House was expensive. It makes some of the most exotic fruit and sour beers in the USA. But $4 for a quarter pint is going too far. They could import even better beers from Belgium cheaper. I and another...More

Beer sampling at it's finest. Everything I tasted was delicious, my wife loved it. "Beer cheese soup" is unreal. So so good. The Ruben was very tasty. Fun environment. Wait staff super friendly and very knowledgeable with the beers. The menu also has suggested pairings.
