Announcing The Session #48: Cask, Keg, Can, Bottle?


I'm delighted to be hosting February's round of The Session: Beer Blogging Friday.

The method of beer dispense often raises the hackles of even the most seasoned beer drinker. Some evangilise about living, breathing cask as being the one true way. Others heartily support the pressurised keg. The humble tinny has its fans. Lovers of bottled beer, either conditioned or pasturised, can be equally vociferous.

Perhaps you think that one method magnifies a beer's impact. Perhaps you won't try a beer if it's dispensed in a way you don't agree with. Perhaps you've tried one beer that's been dispensed every which way.

The question is simple but your answer may not be: Cask, Keg, Can, Bottle: Does dispense matter?

Post to your blog on Friday February 4th and add a comment below with a link to your piece so I can compile a round-up.

  17. Upon further reflection the ideal vessel for any beer is my belly. Dispense is pleasant as well, but not much good for drinking.
