Tropical Grasslands – Cascade Brewing’s First Sour Beer in a Can
(Portland, OR) – Cascade Brewing, a pioneer of the sour beer renaissance, is releasing its first sour beer in a can. Tropical Grasslands is available in single 12 ounce cans starting today at both Cascade Brewing pubs in Portland; four packs are available through very limited distribution in California, Oregon, Washington and Idaho. This beer will not be available on draft.
Tropical Grasslands is a Gose-style ale aged in oak barrels for up to 10 months then infused with fresh orange zest, fresh lemongrass, ground coriander and Oregon Coast sea salt (5% ABV).
“Tropical Grasslands is the first in a new series of canned sours that are designed to be crisp, easy-drinking sours with clean and complex flavors,” explained Kevin Martin, director of brewery operations for Cascade Brewing. “With soft acidity and fresh flavors, this canned series will be a great gateway sour for those new to sour beer, and will also appeal to the sour beer connoisseur looking for a softer approach to the style.”
Unlike Cascade Brewing’s bottled sour beers, Tropical Grasslands and future canned sour beers are meant to be consumed fresh, not aged.
