National Cask Ale Week, now in its second year, is a week where those pubs and breweries and supporting campaign groups shout loudly about our favourite drink. We are all encouraged to join in with the big boys and put on events to persuade everyone to try Cask Ale.
At the BBF, (whilst not being great at being told what to do, and when to do it!) we have decided to give the good people of Bristol a couple of Cask Ale treats to show its versatility and hopefully to get you to try some styles of beer you otherwise might not.
Bristol Stout, our Cask Stout that often looks, but doesn't taste, like its come out of a nitro-keg, will be available with a loyalty card. Simply get 3 stamps on your card and get a 4th drink free! This will be available at participating pubs during Cask Ale Week, don't worry you don't have to drink it all in one sitting.
April 1st has been nominated as FemALE day, a day when we encourage women to try some beer. This time last year less than 16% of women had tried cask ale. A year on and that figure has risen to 30%, with many continuing to drink it.
The boys from the BBF will be hosting a Beer and Chocolate Tasting event at the Grain Barge to showcase the different flavours available in cask beer and how they can work with different foods. Limited numbers of tickets will be available for this event on a first come first saved basis.
The tasting starts at 8 o'clock with at least 6 different beer and chocolate combinations for you, for the measly price of £8.
