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.
During the COVID-19 shutdown, Cascade Brewing is offering beer to go––including Pineapple Retreat in 16-ounce crowler cans––via home delivery and curbside pickup. Customers can place an order for beer and limited food at CascadeBrewing.shop, with curbside pickup at the Barrel House at 939 SE Belmont St. every Thursday through Sunday from 3pm to 7pm. Home delivery orders of beer only are delivered every Thursday. At the Lodge at Cascade Brewing at 7424 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy., beer and limited food is available for pickup every Tuesday through Saturday from 3pm to 8pm; view the menu at LodgeAtCascade.com.
