A-Cascade is located in a slightly gritty area of Portland (not far from downtown). I say gritty, but the place is not a dive by any stretch. There is a decent-sized patio out front that looks on to the parking lot. Inside it is a bit commercial feeling with standard-issue "micro-brewery" decor like barrel tables and the like. The bar is medium-sized, maybe a dozen or 15 stools, and there are a few booths and tables as well. Friendly, but not inspiring or unique. It was pretty quiet on the rainy Tuesday night I visited.

Q-The Cascade beers I tried were all pretty amazing and my previous (limited) experience with Cascade has also been great, so quality ranks high. I tried Sang Noir, Apricot Ale, a fresh-from-the-barrel Cherry Bourbonic Plague, and some of their mulled, spiced hot ale, Glueh Kriek. All were great...even the Glueh Kriek.

Ser-The service was prompt, friendly, and beers were poured with care. I engaged in a bit of chit-chat, but did not get into lengthy conversations with any of the employees about beer. It mostly seemed like they know what they were talking about.

Sel-The beers on tap, as well as those in the bottle are all Cascade, but that isn't a problem because there is a lot of Cascade to choose from. I counted 17 beers on tap (half were sour, half were not sour) and ten bottles available for take away. Plus the hot mulled ale. Not bad at all.

F-I had a cheese plate that was a little short on the cheese, but what cheese there was went well with the sour beers I was drinking. The other food looked pretty good, but I didn't try any. Also, regarding the cheese plate...kiwi fruit and dill pickles on the same plate?

V-The sours are mostly reasonably priced, but sours are expensive. Also, the tasters were on the small side for the price. Not a rip-off, but not cheap, either.

O-Well worth the visit and its near Hair of the Dog and the Green Dragon, so if sours aren't your thing, you're close to other good spots.

I have been to about 25 different breweries and hands down Cascade was the best, great selection, great service and awesome beer.
