Our plane gets into Logan about six. Where should I meet you guys. My liver is going out in a blaze of glory after this trip.

I had no frigging idea just how spectacular a steady diet of cask ales could be. Even the proprietary pubs have to offer at least one of someone else's brews and the free pubs are a glorious monument to selection.

I see a beer engine in my future.

Hi Bob,
I'm looking forward to getting to know other guys in the club a little better. Always like brewery tours as well, so should be fun. I just won't be doing all the stops in the crawl, with a commute back to NH looming. Mort

My wife prefers cask conditioned, but me, not so much.

Can someone please tell me why the cask conditioned beers always seem much flatter, and different tasting to me than any other tap, or bottled beer? I know that they don't add CO2, and the keg gets sealed for a bit to build up the carbonation, but do they typically target a much lower carbonation level than bottling? Or is it just because as beer is pumped out, air is pumped in, and that's what makes it flatter?

Yeah, it's a lower CO2 target - might only be ~1 volume, IIRC. It's also usually served warmer. There was a brewpub in Pittsfield that served an IPA on cask, and it was one of the best beers I've had (but only so-so under normal carbonation and and normal temps) - so smooth, all these other flavors were jumping out that I'd never noticed before, just felt so much fuller-bodied yet easier to drink... a completely different (and better) beer.

I'd also assume that there would be a little more yeast inside a cask. Whenever I try a casked beer I taste more of the yeast profile. Add that with a higher temp. I may be wrong.

Supposedly I just got power back to my house. Bathing in the koi pond in the morning was getting a little old. I believe I'm hooked up because the power guy heard the behemoth keezer start up once he flipped the switch.
