WAKE UP PORTLAND!
We have a new member of our Hammer & Stitch brew team. Cason is on the scene with her first beer at Hammer & Stitch: a delightfully caffeinated cold brew coffee cream ale that she hand crafted with our Slabtown friends and neighbors at Groundwork Coffee Co. We sit down with Cason over a pint of WAKE UP CALL let her tell HER story...
A Portland native, Cason has been in the Craft Brewery scene for the past few years. Her brewing story starts over at our friends Migration Brewing, where she began as a Beertender for 2 years before learning the role of a Cellar Person. Well-versed in a brew house, she joined our small but passionate team at Hammer & Stitch in October 2021 as our new Assistant Brewer. We handed her the reins--to make her first beer creation. What's her inspiration? What's her passion? How did this delightful beer + coffee collaboration come to fruition? We dive in to her mind over a pint of Wake Up Call...keep up with us on instagram
It started with a conversation over a few beers. Our Brewing Team and our friends next door at Groundwork Coffee Co. shared ideas, cold brew samples, and cream ale samples. And a concept was born.
Over the next few weeks Cason was hard at work writing up a recipe for a light, drinkable, and approachable cream ale. We toured Groundwork's coffee roasting facility and designed our own custom-made cold brew batch with the intent of perfectly marrying these two Portland vices. The only thing left to do was brew!Visit our brewery
