You can label me a west coast hop junkie if you want but even the most jaded bitter hater has to love this name….
This is part of a series of bottles from renowned can brewers, Caldera from Ashland, Oregon. They also have a Lawnmower beer out and a big dark malty beer is in the works along with an uber smoke beer.

Cascade Brewing 5 Barrel Thread:
a one-only blend of five amazing beers: Bourbon Barrel Aged Quad, White Port Aged Raspberry, Barrel Aged Triple, Apricot and Sour Pie Kriek. The blend may sound a bit odd, but brewers Ron Gansberg and Curtis Bain say you’ll be surprised by the “lift and color found in the final result.”
Barley Brown Fresh Hop IPA Roadside: Employing country roadside hops from Baker City, Oregon, this beer is a kind one of kind. Brewer Shawn Kelso says “It’s pretty hoppy and at 7.25% ABV you may want to just call it an I.P.A. It was brewed with fresh hand picked unknown hops that grow wild on the side of a road here in Baker City. I put 36 pounds in a 3bbl batch. It’s pretty damn tasty!”
Caldera Rose Pedal Imperial Golden Ale: Made with 11 pounds of rose pedals and two liters of Bulgarian rose water, brewer Jim Mills says “this beers tastes like a party at Grandma’s house.” Baileys taproom exclusive.
The fall edition of the Beer Search Party tasting event is now on the calendar!!
