located not far from green dragon, hair of the dog and other spots in SE, the interior is slick, modern, clean, polished, all that. taps and barrels along the wall, mostly sours and oak aged stuff, including a random blend of the week or two, but also some standard IPA-type taps. small samples available, friendly bartenders but somewhat nosy about my approval of the beer. do they really want my honest opinion? i donít think they have time and patience to hear me out. kitchen-sink sour blends and a lot of cowboy-type "shooting from the hip" recipes, that would sum it up. cool spot but i canít say iím a huge fan of the sour blend work at the moment.

Visited July 2011.

First stop of the day. I walked here from the place I was staying and showed up a few minutes before opening. Surprisingly I wasnít the only one outside waiting for the doors to open. There were a couple of other beer nerds out there looking in the window. The set up is pretty nice inside. They have these barrels that the beer is served from, well, not really served from but itís a nice decoration. They had a surprising number of non-sour beers on tap in addition to half a dozen sours. I tried an apple pie beer and some IPAs. They also sell some bottles. The service was friendly and explained some of the weirder beers on tap. Very cool place, will stop back in for sure.

Pretty cool place with a makeshift patio out front, plenty of bar seating, and some high top (barrel) tables inside. Nice brick building...all very well done.

Inside they had a handful of "regular" beers, that is: not sour. These were mostly mediocre. Lots of sour stuff on tap including a few specials like Honeycot and Aviation Tartini, but a lot of their normal lineup of sour beers. But itís nice to be able to try them in this way instead of buying a $30+ 750ml bottle.

Service was quite good and quick. But the prices here are relatively high compared to other places in town. Yeah, the tasters are cheap, but theyíre quite small. And the bottles are (as previously mentioned) expensive.

Overall, itís not a place I was blown away by. When I first started trying sour beers maybe 6 years ago, there werenít a whole lot of American breweries making them and their Kriek and Apricot were early favorites. Since then, theyíve obviously expanded their lineup, but I feel the taste of those beers doesnít match up and the prices are too high. Perhaps itís just a case of this brewery just running its course for me.

Nice little bar that opens up onto an outdoor area. Beer is mainly Saisons and Sours, but they do have a few other styles. They primarily serve their own brands. Food is well suited to their styles of beers and has many rustic farmhouse plates. A definite for those who like this style of beer.

Visited on a Sunday evening in November 2015. Large tap room with plenty of seats. Samplers available for each of the beers. Tried quite a few of them, all were very good. Lots of sour goodness! Serving staff were on the ball and kept the beer flowing. Maybe a little expensive but the beer quality is great. A must if in Portland

Cascade is a blast if you enjoy sour beers. I was impressed with the quality of everything I tried and the beers were fun to drink. Small pours can be had so itís easy to get through the menu. I came back for the seasonal Gose, man itís good. The interior is quite basic but as a beer tourist I guess itís the kinda place you just wanna park yourself and get though the extensive tap selection. Thereís bottles to go with seasonal releases at like 20 bucks or more a pop. The staff working here are cool. They serve food but gave it a miss.

Visited around 4.30pm on Wednesday 7/11/12. Large single room establishment with bar at the front centre as you enter. Place was a little quiet at first but trade soon picked up as folks came after work. Didnít try the food, but what we saw looked decent. Service was pretty good, I was working my way through 4oz measures and our server came back ervery 5 to 10 minutes so I never ran dry. Good dozen or so Cascade beers available on tap along with 2 from the wooden barrel. Plenty of non sour options for friends who donít drink the tarte stuff! Really enjoyed my stop here - a must visit on a PDX crawl!

Ummmmmmm. Yeah. Crazy ass place. Unbelievable selection, far surpassing expectations. I was totally enthralled, didnít rate a single beer. Tried every single sour! It was like each was better than the next. Highlights may be Noyaux, Frite Galois, the Apricot, the Rasperry, Vine, and Sang family. Overwhelmingly awesome.

(Visited 05/2013): Cascade Brewing is a brick building located on Belmont in the Buckman area of east Portland. Parking is available on the surrounding streets.

There is a patio outside, and an open entryway into the inside. The bar is along the rear wall, featuring barrel-top dispensers, and there are high tables, plus some booths along the wall. Beer menus behind the bar display what is available on draught, including current barrel offerings. The menu also lists which bottled beers (mostly sours) are available to take home.

The selection at Cascade is pretty robust, and samples are available of the nearly 20 beers they serve. Again the majority are of the Sour persuasion, including Noyaux, Blueberry, Kriek, Apricot and The Vine on my visit. Some more standard styles too, plus some specialty beers like Chocolate Bourbonic Plague, LuckiŽ Charms and an Oatmeal Pale. Everything we sampled was good.

Service during our visit was very good. The server was well-versed in the beer menu and was friendly and attentive.

Food at Cascade is pretty good. We shared a cheese plate.

All in all this is one of the best beer spots to hit in Portland in my opinion.
