Jaden James brewery offers beer alongside the meads, wines, and hard ciders of the Cascade Winery

Cascade Winery, open since 2003, continuously continues to evolve and expand their offerings to include more and more varieties of fermented beverage. One significant step in their evolution has been the introduction of their Jaden James Brewery component offering several beer varieties on tap in the tasting room complemented by a few hard ciders. Current tap selections range from a cream ale to a porter, with a seasonal Oktoberfest and the Beer City Pale Ale being a couple of the current highlights.
While located on Broadmoor south of 44th and sharing space along with offices in a highly industrial part of Kentwood does not immediately seem like likeliest home for a winery, the friendly staff and welcoming atmosphere of the tasting room will make you feel right at home.

In addition to the beer on tap, their award-winning wines and mead are available to be sampled from the bottle. If you are looking for something out of the ordinary, try picking up a bottle of the 12% Jalapeno wine recommended for for cooking or the truly brave.

Subs, dogs, and snacks are offered up to compliment the many fine beverages available. Cascade Winery also features home wine & beer making supplies including kits, grains, yeast and hops for the homebrewers out there. The winery is also looking to continue to diversify with the addition of a distilling operation in the near future, so be sure to stop in soon and see all they have to offer!
