NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (Mar. 23, 2021) – Nashville’s Tennessee Brew Works is partnering with Tennessee neighbors at Cascade Hollow Distilling Co., home to the George A. Dickel & Co. team, to create a limited “Cocktail Series” of craft beers.
Tennessee Brew Works Head Brewer Matt Simpson and Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. General Manager and Distiller Nicole Austin combined their creativity to unveil the “Cocktail Series” just in time for the spring.
The first release in the “Cocktail Series” is a Pineapple, Blood Orange and Coconut Ale, meticulously fruited and aged in the rare Cascade Moon whisky barrels. The beer is inspired by the brewer’s favorite cocktails. Orange in color, the aroma is a balanced combination of pineapple, orange and coconut supported by a tropical hop blend. Simpson says, “The flavor is an island beach party in your mouth with a boozy finish and malt sweetness. The barrel aging process conducts qualities of the unique whisky they once held, offering savory pretzel-like attributes, along with bright and fruity notes of raspberry, pineapple and coconut.” The Pineapple, Blood Orange and Coconut Imperial Fruited Ale is 9.2% ABV, 35 IBU.
The Pineapple, Blood Orange and Coconut Ale will be released at 11 am on March 26 at the Tennessee Brew Works Taproom, 809 Ewing Ave. in Nashville, Cascade Hollow Distillery in Tullahoma, TN, along with limited retailers throughout Tennessee.
The “Cocktail Series” will continue with two additional releases in April and May. The Imperial Strawberry White aged in Cascade Moon Edition No. 1 barrels will be released on April 23, and the Whisky Smash Fruited Ale aged in Cascade Moon Edition No. 1 barrels will release on May 21.
“We are fortunate to have Cascade Hollow Distilling Co. as a partner for barrel aged beer projects,” said Matt Simpson, head brewer, Tennessee Brew Works. “A special thanks to Nicole Austin and her crew for curating this barrel blend that complements unique beer profiles and inspired the creativity in these cocktail series beers.”
“We are thrilled to once again collaborate with the Tennessee Brew Works team,” said Nicole Austin. “Our partnerships continue to result in great barrel aged beers, and as Cascade Moon Edition No. 1 is inspired by, and features similar tasting notes found in a gose-style beer, this release felt natural. It feels fitting that the refilled casks used for Cascade Moon Edition No. 1 would be re-used to age this beer, coming full circle with Pineapple, Blood Orange and Coconut Ale!”
Known for their world-class whisky, George Dickel is part of Tennessee history with George A. Dickel & Co first releasing whisky 150 years ago, something that they’re highlighting with their new Cascade Moon Whisky Series. Even the name of the series, which is inspired by Cascade Hollow's original Cascade Pure Whisky that used the tagline 'mellow as moonlight', strikes a balance between the traditional and contemporary. The unique and delicious Cascade Moon Edition No. 1 was blended with 16-year-old whisky aged in refilled casks along with 11-year-old whisky at Cascade Hollow.
