I went to Southwold last week, home of the legendary Adnams Brewery. I drank the local beer in the local pub and the experience reinforced my belief in localism; this beer was utterly, superbly devine: wonderfully fresh and tasty, an absolute joy. I regret not booking into a B&B and gorging myself on the stuff (but I am going back for more).
There are two pre-conditions to delivering good cask ale: a short, swift supply chain and a rapid turnover rate. Local beer is the best way of achieving this and is therefore the best pint on the bar.
That's all I have to say about this.
You wish. This is just the start of a tirade against the wide distribution of cask beer.
