Casks for Breakfast

Anyone going to the Cask Conditioned beer event at Marble? It is being held on Sunday, June 1st. I gotta admit, I'm not the world's biggest cask beer fan. I like it ok, and I can appreciate the flavors that you get out of a cask beer that you may not detect otherwise, but I may not go on Sunday. One reason is that it will probably be a warm day and drinking room temperature beer around a bunch of sweaty dudes lacks appeal for me. the other reason is the time. The event is going on during the afternoon and I am not much of a daytime drinker. I prefer to drink later in the evening, where I can drink until bedtime and drift off into an alcohol-induced sleep.

Well dude you're not respecting beer you shouldn't drink beer to get drunk you should drink it to savor the taste of the beer and gain an understanding of what the brewer is trying to portray
Ok, sure. I don't see anyone putting on a "Fanta Fest". The taste of the beer should be and probably is the main attraction for people going to a cask event, but alcohol fuels the fire.

Its like Tracy Morgan says so eloquently while playing "Uncle Jemimah" and hawking "Uncle Jemimah's Pure Mash Liquor"on Saturday Night Live, " Let me axe you a question. D'ya like drinkin'?...Hell, ya like drinkin'! Who the hell don't?"
