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

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 don’t 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 can’t say i’m 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 wasn’t 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 it’s 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.
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.
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 it’s 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 they’re quite small. And the bottles are (as previously mentioned) expensive.
Overall, it’s not a place I was blown away by. When I first started trying sour beers maybe 6 years ago, there weren’t a whole lot of American breweries making them and their Kriek and Apricot were early favorites. Since then, they’ve obviously expanded their lineup, but I feel the taste of those beers doesn’t match up and the prices are too high. Perhaps it’s just a case of this brewery just running its course for me.
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 it’s easy to get through the menu. I came back for the seasonal Gose, man it’s good. The interior is quite basic but as a beer tourist I guess it’s the kinda place you just wanna park yourself and get though the extensive tap selection. There’s 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.
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.
Great little brewpub, with very friendly service and the opportunity to sample many of Cascade’s inventive sours. Don’t bother with their "normal" beers - they’re very middle-of-the-road. Definitely worth the visit.
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.
Didn’t 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 don’t drink the tarte stuff!
Really enjoyed my stop here - a must visit on a PDX crawl!
