TBBW 2016 March 12th 7pm : PUCKER UP ! Sour Beer Event featuring Almanac Beer Co. + Cascade Brewing Barrelhouse
The Almanac Beer Company was founded in 2010 by Jesse Friedman and Damian Fagan. Farm-to-barrel brewing is about selecting the best in locally sourced fruit and blending it into beers inspired by the great brewing traditions of the world. They aim to create something special and uniquely Northern Californian. Join Jessie Friedman and Chris Mathiassen at the Indie after Hunapu Day, hang out and experience these unique brews!
Cascade Brewing is a pioneer of the NW style sour beer movement. They are, by nature, the definition of artisanal brewing: they’re not bound by stylistic guidelines, just their own imagination and the ingredients. Their blending house currently houses more than 1,400 French oak, Kentucky Bourbon and Northwest wine barrels – plus nine foudres – filled with wheats, blonds, quads, reds, browns and porters that are aged and blended into magical elixirs. These beers have aggressive tart notes that are balanced by residual sugars, fruits, spices and the oak they use.
