The next bottle release, with limited draft, from Cascade Brewing will be Manhattan NW 2014 Project. Available this Wednesday, April 6th, at Cascade Brewing Barrel House (939 SE Belmont St) and brewery (7424 SW Beaverton Hillsdale Hwy) in 750ml bottles for $30, or $8 a glass and $3 per taster.
Manhattan NW is a blend of sour quad and blond ales aged in bourbon barrels with sour pie cherries and apricot noyaux. A tribute to the classic Manhattan cocktail, this fan favorite features flavors of bourbon, maraschino cherries, bitter almond and a hint of malt sweetness. The beer weighs in at 9.6 percent ABV.
The brewery will also be offering vintage draft and bottles to celebrate the new release, including the 2011 and 2013 on draft and the 2013 in bottles.
