Recently a group of 14 Cask! members and Toronto cask ale fans met up at the Great British Beer Festival in Earls Court, London. A great time was had by all, sampling the 450 cask-conditioned ales on offer. Well, some of them anyway! And with this many Cask! members gathered together on the other side of the Atlantic we just couldn’t miss out on a photo opportunity.
Cask! members at the Great British Beer Festival, Earl’s Court, London

If you happen to be travelling to Europe next summer, we can heartily recommend the festival to anyone interested in experiencing an awesome selection of fine real ales, including an impressive range of cask beers from other parts of Europe, USA and the rest of the world. Sadly, there were no cask ales from Canada available, but we hope that as cask ale popularity continues to grow here we may yet see a Canadian cask ale at GBBF. Here’s hoping, or should that say ‘hopping’?
