Cascade Brewing Announces Expansion Plans

imageFrom Cascade:

Cascade Brewing announces the promotion of Kevin Martin to lead blender. Martin, who has been with Cascade since early 2012 and has served as cellar-master for the past two years, will now oversee putting all sour blends together, including stewarding the live barrels in the brewery’s popular Tap It Tuesday program.



“Kevin has been a huge asset to the blending program at Cascade since taking the reigns,” explained Ron Gansberg, brewmaster and blend-master for the company. “We are excited to promote him to this position and allow him the freedom to further express his creativity.”



As lead blender, Martin will work closely with Gansberg to develop components of each blend, overseeing ratios and percentages and providing creative input. He will also steward the blends for Tap It Tuesday, a weekly event at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House that features exclusive one-off limited blends from the cellar, with the contribution of Cascade personnel.



Martin got his start in the wine industry in 2007, working multiple harvests in a number of wineries. A homebrewer, he chose to segue into beer and attended the American Brewers Guild Intensive Brewing Science and Engineering program from 2011 to 2012. Originally from Lancaster, Penn., he came to Portland for its vibrant beer and wine culture, securing a brief internship with Laurelwood Brewing Co. before settling in at Cascade.



Cascade has added a number of other recent new hires as well, including Mike Starzec as general manger of the Cascade Brewing Barrel House; Robby Roda as director of sales, distribution and marketing; and Chris Doggett as senior accountant.



Starzec, who originally hails from Anchorage, Alaska, oversees all operations at the Cascade Brewing Barrel House at 939 SE Belmont St. He has worked as a restaurant manager in Portland for the last 15 years, with the last six years focused primarily in brewpubs. Most recently he spent five years managing the Deschutes Brewery Portland Public House.



Roda, a Portland native, oversees all accounts in the Northwest, as well as acting as the liaison with Cascade’s national distributors and helping grow the brand. He most recently worked in sales with Incline Beverages, a craft beer distributor in Southern Calif. He has also worked with a number of beer bars and breweries in Calif., including The Bottle Room in Whittier, Monkish Brewing In Torrance and Golden Road Brewery in Los Angeles.



Doggett is a native Oregonian who graduated from Portland State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in accounting. Doggett manages all in-house accounting, and is also overseeing the company’s transition to new ERP software. He has previously worked at Xerox and SDRI.



Cascade Brewery, which makes a number of traditional style ales but is known worldwide for its NW sour style beers, has recently expanded into a 23,000 square foot warehouse in SW Portland that will headquarter all of its blending, aging, packaging and distribution. The Cascade Blending House currently holds 1,300 barrels filled with its sour beer, plus an additional nine foudres (giant wooden barrels that typically hold around 1,800 gallons of beer). The company is in the process of moving all operations out of the Cascade Brewing Barrel House; in the near future, it will expand that space into a larger pub and tasting room.

Karl Strauss Releases Five Wee Heavy Bells Scotch on Scotch Ale

image
From Karl Strauss:

The post-Thanksgiving food naps are over, Black Friday is in full swing...this must mean the holiday season has officially arrived! It's finally time to introduce our Scotch on Scotch Ale, Five Wee Heavy Bells. This is the fifth annual release in our less than literal "12 Days" Holiday Series. These high alcohol, cellar friendly brews celebrate the season with a San Diego twist. This year's pioneering release gets its name from the famous bells of Mission San Diego de Alcala, whose "five golden rings" (see what we did there?) can only be heard in unison once a year.

Five Wee Heavy Bells is a smooth, malty scotch ale with rich caramel flavors and a warming finish. The beer’s malt sweetness is balanced by pronounced scotch characteristics, carefully developed by aging the beer on scotch-soaked American oak chips. Whether you enjoy your bottle now or let it age, Five Wee Heavy Bells is perfect for the holidays.

Look for Five Wee Heavy Bells on draft & in 22oz Bombers at our Tasting Room, Brewery Restaurant locations, and your favorite local watering hole. Happy Holidays from Karl Strauss!


San Diego, CA – December 3, 2014--

As part of celebrating 25 years pioneering San Diego’s craft beer scene, Karl Strauss is releasing the fifth edition in their innovative “12 Days” holiday ale series.  The series features high alcohol, cellar-friendly beers designed to be enjoyed this year or laid down and stored for future holiday celebrations.  The beer names in this series have a distinctly San Diego twist on the verses in the classic holiday song.  To date, the series has featured Four Scowling Owls – a Belgian Tripel, Mouette a Trois – a Holiday Fruitcake Ale, Two Tortugas – a Belgian Quad, and Parrot in a Palm Tree – a Baltic Porter.  This year’s release, called Five Wee Heavy Bells, is named after the famous bells at the Mission San Diego de Alcala and their “five golden rings” which can be heard in unison only once a year.

Five Wee Heavy Bells, like a fine scotch, is perfect for this holiday season and will get even better with age.   This malty scotch ale weighs in at a smooth 9.5% ABV and packs a deliciously warm finish. Rich caramel flavors provide the perfect backdrop to the beer’s pronounced scotch character.  “We took a traditional Scotch Ale and aged it on scotch-soaked American oak chips,” says Paul Segura, Brewmaster, Karl Strauss Brewing Company. “The scotch flavors balance the malty sweetness of the beer, and the whole process inspired us to call this bad boy a Scotch on Scotch ale.”

Fans can enjoy Five Wee Heavy Bells at Karl Strauss’ Tasting Room in Pacific Beach, at their eight satellite brewery locations, or at fine retailers, bars and restaurants throughout California.

For more information on Karl Strauss’ 12 Days series, visit www.karlstrauss.com. Share it. Cheers.
