Cascade Brewing Releases Pineapple Retreat on Draft in Honor of Cinco de Mayo

Cascade Brewing is releasing Pineapple Retreat this Thursday, April 30, in honor of Cinco de Mayo. A special draft only small blend, Pineapple Retreat features sour blond ales aged in oak wine barrels for up to 20 months then fermented with fresh organic pineapple and infused with habanero pepper and cilantro. Like a fresh pineapple salsa, Pineapple Retreat combines fruity and herbal flavors with a lively acidity and just a touch of heat.
 
Cascade was pleased to source the fresh pineapple used in this beer from Imperfect Foods, an online grocer committed to eliminating food waste and building a better food system for everyone. According to Imperfect Foods, an estimated 40% of all food goes uneaten, and 33% of food that’s grown is either unharvested or left behind in the fields because the growers suspect it might not meet the specifications of their buyers.
Pineapple Retreat is available for limited distribution and will be on tap at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House in Southeast Portland and the Lodge at Cascade Brewing in Southwest Portland.
