Cascade Announces Releases for March: Apricot & Staying Hoptimistic

Cascade Brewing has announced the upcoming release of Apricot and Staying Hoptimistic starting Friday, March 4th.

Apricot is a blend of sour blond ales aged in oak wine barrels for up to 14 months, then naturally fermented with Northwest-grown apricots and aged on the fruit for an additional six months before packaging. As one of the first and longest-running blends in our portfolio, Apricot has become a quintessential part of Cascade Brewing’s identity as a producer of Northwest sour ales. Apricot is 7.1% ABV and will be available in draft kegs and 250 ml cans.

There’s no denying that these are trying times, so we are here to spread some hopefulness with Staying Hoptimistic. This sour golden ale was aged in oak barrels and foudres for up to 10 months before dry hopping with Strata hops. With notes of grapefruit, strawberry, melon, and hint of dankness. Staying Hoptimistic is 5.8% ABV and will be available in draft kegs and 12 oz cans.

Both Apricot and Staying Hoptimistic will be available locally at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House at 939 SE Belmont Street and through regular distribution.
