CASK TAPPING TOMORROW (Friday Feb 19) – THE ONLY REAL CASK ALE IN ROCKFORD:

Tomorrow, we’re tapping a firkin (cask) of Boulder Mad Mojo (double dry hopped MOJO IPA) at 3pm. What is Cask beer?
“Unfiltered beer, usually ale), that is racked (transferred) into casks, krausened (carbonated), sealed and then undergoes a slight final fermentation in the cask. Often finings (clarifying agents) will be added to help the beer drop bright—when yeast cells naturally flocculate (clump) and settle at the bottom of a vessel.
The net result is a beer that has a much gentler level of carbonation, a rounder mouthfeel, and since it is unfiltered, usually shows a slightly more complex flavor and aromatic profile. It is often slightly cloudy, and is best served at cellar temperature (around 55°F). It’s considered “live” beer since it is unfiltered and has live yeast in the cask (which is how we get the final fermentation and carbonation).”
