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

Visited on a Tuesday mid-afternoon. Easy to find along a busy stretch of SE Belmont Avenue. With the name, I suppose I was expecting more of a dark, cellar type space - this is anything but. Pretty, new open airy space with plenty of bar and bar table seating, as well some booths along the well. Great sidewalk patio available as well. 21 different Cascade beers on draft, 2 service live from the barrel and a bunch of standard and vintage (2008 Kriek on the list) bottles available to go. Friendly service, knowledgeable service. I have loved Cascade for many years, and certainly enjoyed my visit.

88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.

Nice outdoor area. Bar wasnít crowded when I went. Lots of sour beer on tap. Really great service and suggestions. All the beer I had was delicious. Tasters available. Nice bottle selection to go.

Since this is my favorite brewery to visit in Portland, I should probably document it. Iíve been here about 4 times now, and now has become a must stop for all my Portland trips. For a sour beer lover like myself, this is the place to go. Sample size pours, as well as full from a wide variety of taps, as well as their non sour offerings. Iíd call their non sour beers good, but the sours are what keep me coming back, especially since there is always something new. The live barrel taps are always cool, and I got a chance to be there for one, even though I donít live there and they do it in the middle of the work week. Food is always good, though the menu is a little limited. Nice outdoor seating area, that I havenít sat in yet, because for me there is a lot to look at inside. Always heavy traffic of people coming in to buy the wide variety of to go bottles they have. Good location, as there are many places to hit close by on a crawl. As I said before, a must stop place for sour lovers and beer lovers alike.

Visited in the early afternoon on Monday June 29, 2015. No AC and a hot day, fans werenít helping much, was a sweaty visit. Fairly big crowd inside, not many outside at this time. Found a table in the back for the 4 of us. Possible to purchase 2 small samples at the time from the rather big selection available. For the first run we pretty much got 2 samples each, then I had a few more once my mates had found what they wanted to drink. Service was good. Part from it being so hot in there, was a realy interestign place, especially with the sour selection and the regular selection to work together. Would absolutely go back if in town again. Walked over from the Green Dragon which is literally across the street, there was a bus stop right there as well, if I remember correct the number 15 bus stopping at SE Belmont St and SE 9th Ave. Parking in the street seems to be available. Not many crosswalks around, so take caution if walking to these places. After here walked a few blocks to Base Camp. Wifi available.

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.

bytemesis  (774) Sunnyvale, California | June 27, 2015
Nice place with a mix of indoor and outdoor seating, including a decent sized bar. 12 sour taps and 6 "other," plus a coupe of barrel specials and bottles for in-house consumption. Other bottle available to go. It took a bit for me to get the attention of a server, but after that all was good. Everything for sale in tasters, which can be purchased individually. Vintage bottle list was a bonus. Lack of air conditioning was a drawback, at least today.

Quite a fun visit. Extra fun during CBC. Had some food, it was decent, but that is not the reason that you come to Cascade. The beers are as you would expect, mostly sour and almost all delicious. Great and friendly service, even during a busy time. Staff is very nice. Definitely worth a visit.

20 taps of which 13 sour ones. Very nice beers and very good service. Food wasnít exceptionally good though. It happened to be Tuesday when we visited and at 6 pm they cracked open a new cask. This time it was Gose de Mayo. Every Tuesday they have Tap It Tuesday ceremony.
