Learn About Cask Ale

Delicious and unique, cask ale is natural unpasteurized beer served from a cask without additional nitrogen or carbon dioxide pressure. Cask ale is also sometimes referred to as real ale in the United Kingdom, a term coined by the Campaign for Real Ale, often now extended to cover bottle-conditioned beer as well.

Stout wooden barrels held together with an iron hoop were developed by the north European Celts during the Iron Age for storing beer and wine.
