Cask-Conditioned Real Ales
The modern industrial age has brought many improvements to our modern lives, including some that have altered our perception of beer and what it could and should be. Ice-cold refrigeration and unnatural forced carbonation have helped to promote flavorless fizzy (yet indefinitely stable) beers worldwide. But what of the time-honored methods of yesteryear? Unpasteurized, unfiltered and all-natural real ales hearken back to the advent of brewing and civilization itself. Regardless of style, these beers undergo a second fermentation in the cask, resulting in natural carbonation, and are served hand-pulled through “beer engines” at traditional cellar temperature (50-60F). The enhanced aroma and flavor will make a believer out of you, too! Purists will tell you, this is the only way to experience “real ale”…alive and on cask!
