The journey of a cask

A CAMRA Learn & Discover video guide

Cask beer, cask ales or cask conditioned beer. You might have seen these words on pub signs, bar menus and beer festival marketing. But what exactly is cask beer? Why is it special or different? And, what does that mean to you as a beer drinker and your experience of drinking cask beer. Drinks educator and micropub owner Alison Taffs guides us through this brief, beginners introduction to cask beer on it’s journey from the brewery to your glass at the bar.

In this 2 part series on cider blending and maturation, Bill Bradshaw guides us through a series of conversations with some of the foremost blenders at the zenith of the cider-makers craft. The kind of ciders that find us at the bottom of an empty glass, savouring the moment and dreaming of what led us there. This series features Tom Oliver of Oliver’s Cider, founders of Little Pomona cider, James and Susanna Forbes, founders of Find and Foster fine ciders, Mat and Polly Hilton and retired biochemist, cider maker and veteran of Long Ashton Research Station (the National Fruit and Cider Institute), Andrew Lea.
