    Looks like Cascade is bottling this for release in May. Figaro is a blend of strong blond beers barrel aged with dried Adriatic white figs and Spanish lemon peel. Will only be available at City Beer in SF, the Raccoon Lodge, and the Barrel House.

    Definitely going to check this one out, anyone tried this before?

    That sounds very good. Coming out around the same time as Sang Noir? Awesome.

    Had it at Zeickelmania and it's nice a mix up from Cascade. The figs and lemon peel work well with all the lactic acid and barrel characters. Definitely good news that it's being bottled.

    If bottled in May, it probably won't be released for a bit afterwards.

    It's been bottled already, will be available to buy in May.

    Between this, Sang Noir, and the HotD/Deschutes colloboration, my wallet is going to hate May.

    That's a good point. Portland sucks.
