The Mad Brewer '99
More Casks to Empty
March 20, 1999
Castle Eden Brewery
Fons gets some beer to go.
|This is one of the open fermenters, empty of course. The metal place suspended in the middle is very important, but I don't remeber why. All I can say, is don't try this at home, leave it to the professionals.|
|A friend of the brewery, with the obligatory pulling the pint pose. Sorry about that.|
|Gill got a work out filling pints, as most of us
were too lazy to go all that way behind the bar to get a beer.
We tried several cask ales, including the Chinese Beer.
|Another perfect pint.|
|Now here's a guy with the proper motivation: an empty glass. In case you haven't guessed, this is the tasking room at Castle eden. Its the lower floor of what used to be the managers house, and is quite well done.|
|Jim served us some experimental beers as well, using different types of hops for the Castle Eden Ale, I believe.|
|I'm starting to look fuzzy, it must have been those 4 casks of ale we just finished off.|
|Jim gave us the full tour, including pouring a few himself. Thanks for the great tour, Jim.|
|It's a tough job, but he's used to it.|
|These must be the before and after pictures, because Jim gets distinctively redder over time.|
|Nah, he's just blushing for the camera.|
|This is a Real open fermenter, full of the good stuff, and nice and frothy.|
|Polle pulls pint.|
|Steve is going to have to wait a while for the head to subside on this one.|
