Real Ale

We are delighted to announce our beer list for 2022.

Real ale is also known as “cask conditioned” beer; the fundamental distinction between real and other ales is that the yeast is still present in the container from which the beer is served, although it will have settled to the bottom and is not poured into the glass. Because the yeast is still alive, the process of fermentation continues in the cask or bottle on the way to the consumer ensuring a fresh and natural taste. Of course, no extra carbon dioxide or mixed gasses can be applied to the beer.
