Its Not All Butter and Sugar

Sometimes after work (and when Facebook alerts you that something FANTASTIC is happening at the local brewery) life calls for beer. Not just any beer, but good beer! Tonight was just such a night.

After 12 hours at work, and running several necessary errands, I happened to browse Facebook for a quick second and the wonderful word “cask” caught my eye in the status of Burley Oak Brewery . This local brewery has recently started offering an occasional brew served via a hand pulled cask system.

I will not claim to be any sort of expert on the science or mechanics behind how this works, all I know is: its delicious!  Something about the way the beer is fermented in this system makes it super velvety and a bit sweeter than the same beer would be through a traditional tap. All in all, though I am NOT a beer connoisseur by any means, I have to say; this one is worth a try.

Between the beer, the blog, and using my phone to create this post, I’m going to have to consider today a WIN and call it a night. Tomorrow is a new day, with new dreams and new ideas for cupcakes (amongst other things.)
Goodnight dear blogosphere.
Happy baking (and drinking.)
