    All cask conditioned. You're welcome.

     

    Oh yeah. Just reminded me I need to pay them a visit.

      What is the definition of "cask conditioned"?  Would anything you buy on tap at a brewpub be considered cask conditioned, or is there something more to the process than that?

        There are others more expert than me but cask conditioned actually means the beer is in a wooden cask and it is drawn in an old fashioned pump handle that does not use CO2. Its very tasty but not very common in my neck of the woods. I think you can find more of this out east and in Europe. My guess is that Beer Advocate has some great write-ups on it.

              Thanks, that does sound tasty.  Maybe that's why the ale I had while I was in England tasted so much fresher and better than most of the stuff in the US.

                If you have some microbreweries around your neck of the woods check there, especially if they have a pub.  Those places are the most common that I have found cask conditioned beer.  I am lucky enough to visit the Dogfish Head Brew Pub every now and then and they always have cask conditioned 75 Minute IPA.  Delicious.

                  Looks like there are a number of places that have cask conditioned beer in NYC, which is not far from me.  Can't wait to try some.

                    I'm just going to skip reading the first 6 pages and come to the conclusion that the correct method to continually getting faster:

                      While I like the conclusion, I don't think it helps our high school running OP very much.

I will say of SJ, that phrase "Too smart for his own good" and "can't see the forest for the trees" does come quickly to mind!  A couple other phrases as well. ...

                              Sigh. It's in Carmel and we wouldn't be able to get whisky there. There's already a 50% chance that any car with a Marion County plate is going to get ticketed, and drinking just makes it worse.

                                OMG. Stop you're whining already. You can park at my place and we can drive in a Hamilton Co plated car plus I have five different whiskey and four different small batch bourbons to select as a warm up.
