(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.

This is one of the best places to go for a sour ale. Love their selection and prices. Employee knowledge is very good plus they were helpful. Definitely will go back when in the region.

Good selection of beers, no compalints about service etc. Foodwise we had to return our bowls of Chilli because they weíre cold.

I am absolutely crazy about sour beer. If you are too you NEED to go here. If you get the opportunity, go to "Tap it Tuesday". They line the bar with plastic and tap a barrel over the bar. Sometimes it goes EVERYWHERE.

Was in Portland recently and very fortunately directed to Cascade. Although Iíd had sours before...any place Iíd been to that had them on was usually one per place...rarely two. To find a craft bar much less a brewpub dedicated to this style rather overwhelmed me. Needless to say...I loved the beers...and how theyíve found ways to distinguish them from their Belgium cousins. This place is a must visit for any true craftbeer lover. If youíve had little to no experience with sours...this is your introduction and university...

...sour beers rule. Must sample more, enbrace the sour. Ample opportunity for everyone to find something destined to become a favorite.

This is a review of their website, from which you can order their beers. Only four bottles available, but prices are good, shipping is reasonable, and they ship in styro shippers. They even threw in a free T-shirt with my order, although I have to say that giving a medium to some dude ordering 6 beers from their website is perhaps a bit silly. :) All in all a great experience.

I like that this place and their beers exist, but Iím just not a sour beer guy. Yes, not all are sour, but that cuts down on selection. they do a lot of barrel aging & blending, and have some ardent fans. clean modern place. friendly knowledgeable folks working here.

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!
