C’est What’s Cask Ale?


C’est What’s director of beer studies, Leah, is taking a month off from beer school. In the absence of a lesson, this month we are providing you with a refresher on cask ale. While our own Al’s Cask Ale has been drawn directly from the cask for decades at C’est What, the first cask ale served here was Wellington’s Arkell Best Bitter.

The Al’s Cask Ale you see on the shelves in the LCBO is, strictly speaking, not a cask ale – it is lightly filtered and we pressurize the can with nitrogen to mimic the soft carbonation and creamy head of it’s traditional pub served counterpart.
