Beachwood + Cascade

I usually blow through the onslaught of beer release calendars but I did catch one beer that seems to be a powerhouse collaboration to look for (though it will probably be expensive).

Beachwood heading north to Cascade to make a sour wheat ale with smoked malt.  Oak aged with whole pineapple and mango.  This could be like grilled fruit and it sounds very promising.

Sour Rose

Frequent readers know that I am from Portland and that any Portland Trailblazer beer will get featured here even though this is an L.A. beer blog.

I also like to highlight beers that uses one of the Citys nicknames. In this case, Rose City. Cascade, the NW sour power has blended up Rose City Sour. Blonde and wheat aged in Oak Wine barrels for 14 months with additions of both rose petals and rose hips along with the pink tinted hibiscus tea.

I might even break my no hyper expensive bottle buying prohibition to try this one.
