Day of the Living Ales
The national drink of Great Britain, cask conditioned ales have been served for centuries. Before brewers fell in love with artificial carbonation and filtering, beer was naturally conditioned by yeast in the cask, and served at a temperature warm enough to actually taste the beer. But a properly served cask ale is neither cloudy, flat, nor warm; rather it is bright, with a gentle carbonation, and served at cellar temperature. Accept no substitutes!
Sample a vast array of different beers at our walk-around tasting featuring the best cask conditioned ales from Chicagoland breweries and specially selected guests, plus fine meats, cheeses, and other appetizers. Casks are handled by CBS' own experienced cellarmen, trained in the UK to care for and serve real ale. Attendees will select from among the beers: The Champion Real of Chicagoland for 2012!
Admission includes souvenir tasting glass, program, beer samples, and appetizers. All ticket sales are final.
