At 3PM we’ll tap an oak pin of New Belgium Oscar (one of the two Foeder-aged sour beers that Lauren and Eric Salazar use as the base blending beers for the Lips of Faith Series), and we’ll also have a rare keg of Blackberry Whiskey Sour on tap beginning at noon. The Cascade crew are still deciding what blends they'll deliver but you know they'll be great!
