Cascade Lakes Brewery

Cascade Lakes Brewing Company was founded in 1994 by three enthusiastic brothers looking for an exciting business in beautiful, sunny Central Oregon.  They spent many long nights building brewing equipment by hand and coming up with tasty recipes.  More than twenty years later, the long nights and quest for great beer has continued, but on a much larger scale.

In the winter of 2000, Cascade Lakes Brewing Company was purchased by Rick Orazetti and Doug Kutella.  Ron Kutella and Chris Justema soon joined the partnership. What started as a small brewing facility in an airport industrial zone has turned into a state-of-the-art, 25-barrel brew house system that allows brewing 775 gallons per batch, three times daily. The partners also expanded from just a brewery to having four local pubs: 7th Street Brew House, Tumalo Tavern, Cascade West Grub and Alehouse, and our flagship restaurant in Bend, Cascade Lakes Lodge. Cascade Lakes beer is now distributed and sold in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Alaska and California.

Cascade Lakes brews six beers year-round: Blonde Bombshell, 20” Brown, Paddleboard Porter, Hopsmack IPA, Mosaic IPA, and Cyclops IPA. They brew many seasonals throughout the year: Slippery Slope, Drop the M.I.C.,  Skookum Creek Ale, Paulina Lake Pilsner, Rooster Tail Ale, Riverside Red, Silverback Imperial Stout, Kolsch, IRA, just to name a few. Look for our beers on draft at your favorite pub and grab a six-pack at your local grocery store.
