Cascade Brewing Barrel House

Last weekend my wife decided that she wanted to try out Pok Pok and then also go over to Cascade Barrel House. So after some dinner at Pok Pok we drove over to Cascade Barrel house. I've been a couple of times and not being a huge fan of sour beers was interested to see what my wife thought of them. Of course she likes wine so I didn't think it was going to be a big jump for her. We ended up getting the maximum tasters that one person can get which is 4 at $2 apiece. She had the Elderberry, 2011 Kriek, Sang Noir, and Honey Ginger Lime. I had the Portland Pale, Raspberry Wheat, Blueberry, and Barrel Aged Bruin. All the beers were really good. I think my taste for sours is coming around as I wasn't really turned off by any of the beers. The one beer that really stood out was the Honey Ginger Lime, just an amazing beer. All the flavors really mixed well and it was an incredibly refreshing beer on a hot day...my wife actually enjoyed all the beers and also really liked the Honey Ginger Lime and wanted to get a mini growler of it. They don't do growler sales of the sours so that was a bummer.  I really like the space that they have with the rollup doors, comfortable indoor and outdoor seating.  We didn't get any food and haven't any of the previous times so can't comment on the food. If you haven't been yet, you should check it out even if you're not a sour beer fan. Get some tasters and try it out - you might be surprised. Oh, and they do have a a couple non-sour beers on tap, so if you can't do the sours you can have one of the regular beers.  cascadebrewingbarrelhouse.com
