Case of the Mondays: Cascade Brewing- Vlad the Imp Aler

Whales, unicorns, bangers, what ever you want to call them; our resident beer geek Rick will be hand selecting something every month on the last Monday to cure what ALEs you. Finally, you have a reason to look forward to Mondays.

This Northwest style sour is a blend of spiced Quads, Triples and Blondes aged in Bourbon and wine barrels for over 18 months with orange peel and coriander. Vlad offers a fresh acidity and mild sweetness with flavors of citrus, spice and rich oak. Winner of the Silver Medal at the 2008 GABF.
