View Full Version : Cascade Brewers Real Ale Fest
04-25-2009, 04:05 AM
My wife and I are hosting a Real Ale Fest for our homebrew club tomorrow. We encouraged the brewers in our club to brew English ales and cask condition them and serve them with out CO2. So far, it looks like we will have 8 kegs. Two of them will be on handpumps and the others we are going to gravity feed.
This is a big step out of the comfort zone of hoppy PWN ales that the majority of the club brews.
If there are any HBC members close to Eugene that would like to attend, send me a PM.
I'll post some pictures afterward.

Sounds like a blast! Sorry I can't make it, but hope you have a good day.

Here is a link to some photos of the Real Ale Fest. We had a good turn out. There were 10 kegs and lots of good food. The weather was nice and cool as not to warm up the beer too much.

I dig the "gravity feed" setup. I never would have thought of that.
So, how much was left over? :D

My two kegs were half drained. I would suppose that the others were too. My Mild, which I had on gravity feed is getting oxidized from letting the air in. I will probably dump the rest. The Bitter I put on the handpump. I have a cask breather for it so that air is not injected. That one is holding up ok.
