Cask Ale-ert! 11/14/13 @angelcitybeer @ladyfaceale @dailypint @noblealeworks @karl_strauss @LAipafest @38degrees_LA
Hey folks – Just about a week since I started this thing and its picking up steam nicely. Getting a lot of followers and bars/breweries/you all seem very supportive of the endeavor – providing me with information as it comes up. I’m a big fan of what they do over at taphunter, but I also think it can be complimented by crowd-sourced aggregation like what I’m doing with @CaskAleLA.
I visited beerbellyla last night for their Lady Face Ales event and it was a lot of fun. Their derailleur cask was tasty but their Maker’s Mark Barrel Aged Barley Wine was the real standout. Beautifully tart and full flavoured, but still smooth at its 10.6% ABV. Looking forward to having it again.
WIthout further delay – here’s the current cask offerings. If I’ve missed something please let me know and I’ll update. Thanks again.
