1st Williamsburg Cask Ale Festival

This past weekend, cask ale master Alex Hall aka The Gotham Imbiber brought his patented real ales to the Brooklyn borough of Williamsburg. The location this time was DBA Brooklyn. I stopped in for Saturday afternoon's session and had a few unfiltered, unpasteurized beers.

Here's the list:

Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA (a blend of 60 and 90)
BrüRm @ BAR 'Aberdeen Ale'
BrüRm @ BAR 'Chocolate Porter'
Erie 'Railbender Ale'
Honest Town 'Capall Dorche Stout'
Honest Town 'IPA'
Olde Burnside 'Ten Penny Ale'
Ridgeway 'Reindeer Droppings'
Sauer Rossdorf 'Rossdorfer Urbräu'
Shawnee 'Vienna Lager'
Shawnee 'Bourbon Barrel-Aged Entire'
Stone 'Sublimely Self Righteous Ale'

The best offering was definitely the Chocolate Porter from BrüRm @ BAR. I had never heard of this before, but apparently its from a brewpub/nightclub in New Haven, CT. Some good reviews on beeradvocate as well.
