Each Cascadia Grains Conference ends with dinner and our Best of the Cascades Tasting Tour, featuring regional craft brews and spirits that use Cascade grains, ingredients and share the values and spirit of the conference. During both the 2013 and 2014 conference, participants loved having this informal networking time and a chance to sample some of the best of Cascadia.
