SUN NOV 24 from 5PM to 9PM at Bad Habit Room

To give a little back to Angelo De Ieso, founder of Brewpublic, who has given so much to our Portland beer community, Cascade Brewing, will be bringing two extra special beers from the vault to share with a few lucky beer lovers.  The opportunity to try these extremely rare beers is limited to 22 tickets and will be offered on a first come/first serve basis.  ALL proceeds will go directly to Angelo to help covering his mounting medical bills.


Cascade Brewing’s 2007 Cuvée du Jongleur is a blend of select barrels of Flanders Reds, Triples, and Blond Quads that have undergone lactic fermentation and barrel aging up to 18 months. This Belgian Ale is bottle conditioned by 4 months of lactic fermentation and aging. The six years of cellar aging has softened and rounded this beer and it now has sherry notes in the finish.

Cascade Brewing’s 2007 P-Quad This is Vlad (before it was called Vlad), which has not been spiced and was aged in a Pinot Noir instead of Bourbon barrels.  Nearly all Vlad is now aged in Heaven Hills Bourbon Barrels. The original Vlad was a blend of Bourbon and Pinot barrels, so the P-quad is a single component of the original Vlad. The six years in the cellar have turned this “staff only” beer into a tart yet sweet little surprise. Tasting this, then Vlad really reveals the journey.

One ticket gets you 2 oz of Cuvée du Jongleur, 2 oz of P-Quad and the satisfaction that you are helping out someone who has been invaluable to Portland’s Craft Beer world. Only one ticket per person.  You are welcome to share your rare beer samples with a friend.  Tickets will be redeemed on Sunday, November 24th between 5-9pm in Bad Habit Room.  As part of our ongoing fundraising efforts, you will also have the opportunity to purchase additional beers on draft.  A full menu will be available. 

The first 22 to send in an email to (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) with the subject “Drinking Rare Beer for Angelo” and their name, address and phone # in the body of the email will be notified that they made the list.  Those notified have one week to come into Saraveza to reserve their space.  To make your reservation you must have your ID and $25 cash.

We have started to receive donations from people’s private cellars.  We will be putting these rare bottles on display and will hold a silent auction during the event to raise more money for Angelo.  If you have bottles that you would like to donate please email (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).

A huge and heartfelt thank-you to Preston Weesner for donating the bottles of Jongleur and P-Quad and encouraging us to raise money for Angelo with these bottles.  If anyone else out there would like to donate rare beers or other items to the cause, please contact (JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  You can also donate to Angelo directly through his Fundly Campaign.

What’s with that Saraveza “The Vine” bottle?
Saraveza’s crew fell in love with Cascade’s sours in the winter of ‘08.  The following February our staff took a field trip to Cascade to learn all about their souring process and upcoming beers.  We were able to try “The Vine” for the first time and couldn’t wait for FDA label approval to get our hands on a case.  That said, Sarah was able to wrangle up some unlabeled bottles for the staff and presented them as an anniversary gifts just days before “The Vine” made its local debut.
