Cascade Bests the Belgians

Odd to see the New York Times' Eric Asimov raving about Cascade Kriek as the finest sour ale while I'm here in the land of its inspiration--but. I can't disagree.

I do wish they'd included a bottle of Rodenbach Grand Cru in the flight, though.


  1. It's great to see a Portlanhd brewer come out on top! However, Cascade needs some branding help. Branding, graphic design, etc.

    A healthy dose of the Weekend of Spontaneous Fermentation would help rectify opinions in the right direction - - try and make it next year.

    Cascade Kriek is great, but it lacks a 'je ne sais quoi'. Well, actually I think I do, but you have to discover it for yourself. And Eric should too.

  3. I'm with Dominic. Kudos to Cascade for their Kriek; it is indeed a fine beer, but a trifle one-dimensional compared to Cantillon, Boon, et al.
