If you're a beer lover and happen to be in Portland, for business or play, make it a point to visit Cascade Brewing Barrel House in the Buckman area. The USP at Cascade is a wonderful range of cask and barrel conditioned sour brews that are made using a huge variety of fruits, oaks and spices. They serve over 18 ever-changing beers and ales - all of course, with varied degrees of tartness that only adds to the flavor and character of these brews. There's an eclectic food menu to complement these awesome brews as well. When you do drop in, try the Saison de Garde, Sun-kissed Indian Pale Ale and Strawberry Stout, they're truly quite inspired!
