Cask Ales in DFW

nitlsu Oct 24, 2007 05:29 PM

I happened to stumble upon this rather interesting article in the NY Times about cask conditioned ales where they use natural carbonation techniques rather than the CO2 laden, mass market junk that's more commonly available.


I am wondering if there are any places in DFW that serve such beer and if you have been to any - I'd love to hear what are some good beers.

    The Old Monk on Henderson usually has one or two cask conditioned ales on hand. The Gingerman used to, but I haven't been there in a few years.

      Last time I was in the Gingerman, which was several months ago (but less than a year), they had cask-conditioned St. Arnold's. Good stuff.

      I think the Flying Saucer might have a cask engine or two, but I won't swear to it.

      My experience is that, unless you're in England, a given bar will have at most two cask engines, and usually just one. So you can't pick and choose. That said, if you ever see Wailing Wench (out of upstate NY) on cask, get some. Fantastic stuff.
