stopped in the brazenhead in bklyn for the cask ale festival last night. decent enough. i had a milk stout and a saison. neither really impressed me to tell the truth. i think a lot of times the experimental nature of these little festivals - meaning that the local breweries can try out their experiments on us - hurts. the beers just dont taste 'finished.' i mean, i was drinking the saison just thinking, ok this is decent enough, but wouldnt a chouffe be nice...know what i mean. that being said, cheers to the brazenhead for keeping real casks available and viable.
