Cask Conditioning is the traditional method for serving ales. Our casks are 40 liter stainless steel firkins. Each cask is hand filled with fully fermented beer and a small amount of fresh, fermenting beer and sealed with a bung and keystone. The fermenting beer is added to the cask to naturally carbonate or ‘condition’ the beer. Once conditioned we tap our casks and serve them through our traditional English Beer Engine. An ever changing variety of Cask Conditioned beer will be tapped on Thursdays and served throughout each weekend.
We are currently taking a break from offering cask conditioned ale at the Pump Station. We are undergoing some major brewery renovations and as such have temporarily lost our ability to clean our casks. As soon as our brewery is back up and running we’ll be able to offer continually rotating fresh cask beers.
