The Campaign for Real Ale (CAMRA) has hailed cask as the freshest type of beer any pub or bar can put on sale.
CAMRA national chairman Nik Antona said: “Cask Ale Week is a great opportunity for pubs and brewers to promote their cask ale ranges.
“It is important this style of drink is in the forefront of the public’s mind when they frequent their local as it’s the freshest and potentially most locally sourced beverage behind the bar.
“Brewers can organise events which promote their cask products such as tap takeovers or meet-the-brewer nights at local pubs and using the social media hashtag #CaskAleWeek.
“Hosting a Cask Ale Week event is a win-win for both publicans and brewers because it can both advertise and highlight a brewer’s portfolio while driving much-needed custom to a pub or venue.
“CAMRA hopes everyone can visit their local pub, social club or taproom to enjoy a pint throughout Cask Ale Week and continue to support these much-loved establishments so they can survive and thrive for generations to come.”
