The greatest strength of a craft brewery is its process; after all, this is what differentiates home-grown brews from every other run-of-the-mill beer lurking on the shelves out there. Our unique brewing process incorporates rainwater along with time-honoured German techniques utilising custom home-made equipment, and every small, handcrafted batch blends the highest quality, freshest ingredients we source from around the globe.
Although we strive to bring the world a little closer together with our inclusion of quality global ingredients, we can’t tell a lie. Mandurah isn’t just where our brewery is; it’s where our hearts are, too. This is why we make the conscious choice to support our region through the use of locally-sourced ingredients. Our ambition for authenticity informs our mission to educate all the thirsty guys and gals around us about how flavoursome real beer can be through unique, quality experiences. Our vision and eventual goal is to become one of the most respected and preferred craft breweries in Australia.
Summer calls for Blonde, Pure and Pale
As the weather warms the beer media releases come thicker than mosquitos at a barbeque. When they are accompanied by a six-pack they are usually – though not always – more welcome than insects though. One that turned up this week with the media release below was a six-pack of Cascade Blonde which I hadn’t tried for a quite a while.
Given it is labelled as ‘Original Wheat Beer’ it was a little surprising to drink it and be reminded more a Kolsch than the Redback from Cascade’s CUB stablemate, Matilda Bay. I spoke with Cascade head brewer Mike Unsworth who said that the beer still has the fifty/fifty split of pale malt and wheat malt of the Hefeweizen style but uses a lager yeast, but fermentation takes place at a slightly higher temperature.
“The yeast throws off some nice fruity esters, but doesn’t have the same strong flavour as the yeast used by Redback,” Mike said.
“It’s got a good balance of fruitiness while the Cascade hops we use give it some citrus too.”
Mike said it’s based on the blonde lagers of France with the wheat used to give some smooth flavour and nice refreshment. It certainly does that and if you’re looking for a lighter-style ale, such as the Kolschs that many breweries are offering up these days, this will fit neatly into that category. [MK]
Cascade Brewery Co is set to welcome the much anticipated summer months with hero brews, Blonde, Pure and Pale Ale. Whether it’s a barbecue with friends and family or get-together in the sun with mates, Cascade beers are ideal for any occasion.
It’s well-known that a hot summer’s day and beer go hand in hand, and the team of brewers at Cascade have made sure that their quality brews are as fresh as possible, to maximize your enjoyment during the warmer months. With more than 180 years of brewing experience, Cascade is committed to upholding traditional brewing practices, and this is reflected through the instinct and experience of the brewing team, who craft the beers with the philosophy of ‘Brew by Feel’.
“We take our beer very seriously here at Cascade and we are proud to say that our expertise and the use of quality ingredients help us deliver the freshest beer we possibly can,” said head brewer, Mike Unsworth.
As one of Australia’s most iconic beer brands, Cascade’s diverse range of brews holds a significant place in Australia’s brewing history. All Cascade beers are brewed with a commitment to providing Australians with refreshing and approachable beers that offer great value and are readily available.
