Keeping it Real with Ales on Cask

Time for a history lesson folks, a field trip, and a few current events when it comes to Casks and Real Ales. Word is that Short’s now carries Real Ales on Cask at the pub! What are they? Where did they originate from? Who drinks these room temperature craft beers? Let’s bring in head pub brewer Ryan Hale, production brewer Curt Guntzviller, and Short’s historian Jack Archiable to discuss these beautifully crafted beers.

Bridgett and Woj take us on a trip all over Northern Michigan and we start at the pub in Bellaire for our first segment. In our second segment we talk to Graeme Leask, owner of the Little Traverse Inn out in Leelanau County. Little Traverse Inn is a must stop along the infamous M-22 highway. It has that old english gastro pub feel and it’s a great place to watch a soccer or rugby game.

Graeme loves his real ales and being that he is originally from England, we thought it would be great to hear his personal history in regards to real ales, and how he serves them up in his gastro pub at the Little Traverse Inn.

Our music in this episode is from Steve Leaf & the Ex Pats, they will be performing at the pub in Bellaire on June 4th, at 8:30pm. You’ll hear their song “Blood in the Snow”.
