Cascade Brewing has announced the upcoming release of Framboise Northwest 2019, a brand-new Northwest Sour Ale project. Framboise Northwest will be available in draft kegs and in 500ml champagne bottles with a cork and wire hood starting Friday, Sept. 4.
A Northwest-style interpretation of the traditional raspberry ales of the old world, Framboise Northwest is blend of sour blond ales aged in oak wine barrels for up to two years with locally grown raspberries. Clean, tart and packed with fresh fruit flavor, this ruby red sour beer blend celebrates the bountiful berry farms of the Pacific Northwest. It comes in at 7.9% ABV.
Framboise Northwest will be available locally at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House at 939 SE Belmont Street, The Lodge at Cascade Brewing at 7424 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Highway, and online at CascadeBrewing.shop for local pickup only. It will be made available through the brewery’s distribution network beginning Sept. 14.
