Press Release: Raccoon Lodge/Cascade Brewing Saturday event

It’s Oregon Craft Beer Month, and the Raccoon Lodge and Cascade Brewing are celebrating with their annual Beer, Brats & Music Fest! Come join the fun on Saturday, July 11th on the patio. The event will feature live music throughout the afternoon, including tunes by Juan & Ari, and headliner Black Lodge – Cascade Brewing Brewmaster Ron Gansberg’s bluegrass-folk band.

The brewers are especially excited to tap a full 58-gallon barrel of their new Honey Moon, a collaboration with the PDX Homebrewers Club. Honey Moon is a deliciously sweet beer brewed with – what else? – honey, then barrel conditioned. Sounds refreshing! They’ll be tapping this beer old style, with a bung and a mallet. And be sure to order up glasses of the Nightfall Blackberry before it’s all gone.

They’ll also be serving up the new Gose Summer Wheat, a traditional German spiced summer sour with a hint of salt that weighs in at 5% abv and is the ideal beer for the season. That will not be pouring from the barrel.

The festival kicks off at 3 p.m. and lasts through 9:30 p.m. There’s no cover charge, and all ages are welcome. Come on by and raise your pint to celebrate the summer and Oregon Craft Beer Month!
