Autumn Brew Review Cask Beer Update

Hey all-

Just a quick update on the ABR…

VIP tickets are nearly sold out. If you want the extra hour without the crowds, you’ll need to purchase your ticket ASAP. We’re only selling 300 VIP tickets.

I’ve had a few questions on the cask beers – here’s what I know so far:

August Schell – 1 pin Snowstorm 2006 (London Stout) and one pin of the Pale (I’m dry hopping and filling the cask tomorrow, as a matter of fact).

Barley John’s – They are bringing something, but I’m not sure what yet.

Fitger’s – a pin of Daisy Ale 8 (which must mean his daughter is eight this year, man how time flies!) Daisy Ale is a hoppy amber beer. Also, a pin of Big Boat Stout with what Dave describes as a unique hopping schedule.

Great Waters – Who knows what Bob has up his sleeve?

Summit – Damien is up to something, but I’m not sure what.

Town Hall – Mike is bringing the award-winning 1800 British IPA.

So, if you’re looking for cask beer, this is the place to be. Seriously, where else in the world are you going to find casks of Schell’s and Summit, and if you want casks from the pubs, you’d be doing a lot of driving to try them.
