•Portland, Oregon-based Cascade Brewing is debuting new formats for two of its sour ales. Both Pistil Whipped (7.7% abv) and Sang Rouge (7.1% abv) are now available in 12-ounce cans for the first time. Pistil Whipped was originally brewed for the company’s Sour Flower Fest and features late infusions of saffron and chamomile. Sang Rouge was brewed from 2010 to 2015 and is a blend of sour red ales aged in red wine barrels. The new cans are available in singles or and 4-packs at Cascade Brewing’s Barrel House and Lodge locations in Oregon, and in limited distribution.
•Rehoboth, Delaware-based Dogfish Head is launching Re-Gen-Ale in partnership with Indigo Agriculture. Releasing just in time for Climate Week, the brew was produced through the Indigo Carbon program, which provides growers with financial incentives to use techniques that store carbon in their soil. Dogfish Head will also purchase more than the amount of carbon credits needed to offset the production of Re-Gen-Ale. The release is available beginning this weekend on draft and in 4-packs of 16-ounce cans, retailing for $17, at Dogfish Head’s Rehoboth location.Subscribe to Shanken News Daily’s Email Newsletter, delivered to your inbox each morning.
