What is cask ale? A traditional English method of serving beer before refrigeration systems were employed for draft beer service. Unlike draft beer, cask is naturally carbonated at much lower levels and served at "cellar" temperature (45 - 55 degrees fahrenheit). The less intense carbonation and elevated temperature allows the drinker to discern nuanced flavors and malt notes.
Admission to the brewpub is free and space is available on a first come, first served basis. Tasting begins at 11am on Saturday, 11 Nov and extends all day Sunday, 12 Nov. Check out our sampler package offer available online only.
