PORTLAND, Ore. – Cascade Brewing will release its Sang du Chêne 2017 project in 500ml bottles and on draft this Friday, August 9. It will be available at the brewery’s two Portland-area pubs, as well as through its distribution channels.
Meaning “blood of the oak,” Sang du Chêne showcases sour blond and triple ales aged in three distinct oak vessels: toasted French and American oak puncheons, Cognac brandy hogsheads and aged wine foudres. Oak influences are the highlight, providing flavors of toasted sugars, vanillin and spice that are complemented by the bright acidity and fruity character of the base beers.
According to Kevin Martin, Cascade Director of Brewing Operations, “The 2017 Sang du Chêne captures the marriage of wood and beer at its finest.” For more information, visit CascadeBrewing.com and engage with the brewery on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
