Cask v Keg: what is the difference?

Cask beer (or 'cask-conditioned' or 'real ale') re-ferments naturally in the cask for a light 'condition'. It is best served cool, not too cold and is less carbonated than keg beer.

There are different types of keg beer. Some (especially big brands) are pasteurized, filtered and artificially recarbonated. Our keg ales are 'keg-conditioned' for a better flavour - they re-ferment in the keg. They are more carbonated than cask but can't be strictly called 'real ale' as gas is needed to dispense them.


Bottle-conditioned: what is that?

Essentially this is cask ale in a bottle. It re-ferments naturally so throws a little sediment. Best cooled (our hoppier blonde beers best served cooler than other styles) and poured carefully, leaving a little in the bottom of the bottle to avoid pouring the sediment. Most bottled beers are sterile filtered and/or pasteurized; we believe that the less processing done the better for flavour. Store bottles in a cool, dark place. NB As a living product it does mean that very occasionally there may be a dud bottle - get in touch if so and we will of course refund or replace.


Are your beers Vegetarian or Vegan?

Increasingly so. The majority of our range are unfined or use Vegan-friendly finings. They may be naturally hazy. You can find this information on each product page.


Where can I find Allergy advice?

All our beers contain gluten. Our cider is gluten-free. You can find all allergen information on each product page.
