From a Seattle Times story about the cask ale renaissance:
It’s a beer perceived to be warm, flat and tasting of vinegar after a few days. You can see why cask beer has had such a marketing challenge, and why most bars haven’t stocked it.
Now, though, beer fans and foodies can’t get enough of it. It’s been recast as the thinking man’s beer, with all the nuances and complexity of a Bordeaux.
I can’t wait to hoist a few with Ira Glass.
