Ep. 326 – House of Sour/News from China

The House of Sour is a great name for a place where the best of Cascade Brewing's Barrel House is yours for the taking. Joined by "Big Mike" Mathis and Grant Richie to enlighten us about their bright tangy treats, their work with Surfrider PDX (non-profit), their Coral Horizon unveiling at this month's OBF, and their upcoming Raid the Cellar event. You'll be learning about the complexities of sour making, the time and patience it takes, and how certain radical ingredients require delicate balance. As a bonus we have Brew News from afar brought to us by our very own Matthew Harhai back from China, and our guest Jim Sullens from the Oregon Brew Crew and the Beijing Homebrew Society. These two have some inside knowledge about how thigs are done in another land. Damian learns about Paw Paw fruit, Ryan reveals his passion for peaches, Bronwyn fondly recalls her reunion with a Strupe Waffle Stout. Sour power, barrels of fun, fresh air, and brewing at unusual altitudes, on this episode of Brew Happy!
