Critic’s Pick: Beer 4/26/11

Cask AleFest . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .

By Kevin J. Gray

Cask AleFest returns to Chappy’s Tap Room & Grille in Moraine this Saturday, April 30, from 1-5 pm While most modern beers are pasteurized, filtered and carbonated by force, with brewers pumping CO2 into the keg to give it fizz, cask ales are a nod to brewing tradition, where the beers are left relatively untouched and are carbonated naturally, using only yeast to produce the carbonation. Rather than use CO2 to force the beer from the kegs, cask ales rely on beer engines and air pressure to draw the brew from the cask. Cask AleFest claims the largest selection of these rare beers in Ohio, with entries from Bell’s, Great Lakes, Hoppin’ Frog, Sierra Nevada and many others. Tickets are $40 and include free appetizers, but are limited to the first 300 customers. Get tickets at Chappy’s will call (937.299.RIBS) or online at www.AleFest.com.
