what is bright beer?

a normal cask of natural ale, as delivered to a pub, is still "alive" containing a certain amount of solid matter in suspension, mostly yeast but also some hops flowers. a good landlord will keep the cask cool and, a day or so before he plans to serve, he'll tap the cask, set it in place and vent off some of the naturally produced carbon dioxide. this allows the yeast to settle to the bottom of the cask and the beer to clear and is known as dropping bright. fine if you have a pub cellar and equipment but not so convenient if you're having a party at home or in a temporary venue.

if you ask nicely (in other words, a few days before you need it), we can do all this for you and supply the ale bright so you don't have to worry too much about moving it around. we can also rent you a tap and cradle to rest our cask or pin on.
