The Cask Zombie Log – Episode 1

Due to unforeseen events around Whispering Pines, the Cask Whisperer is suffering from a lack of humor, which may unfortunately extend over a period of several weeks.

So instead, this week we introduce the Cask Zombie, who is a man of few words and fewer grins …

… he takes lousy pictures too.

We have good news and bad news:

  • The bad news is that the Cask Zombie will only be posting a log of dates, locations and beers, together with some awful photos.
  • The good news is that the Cask Zombie will be updating the log in (un)real time, so that you, dear reader, can follow along (stalk?) should you so desire.

So, without further ado, handing it over to the Cask Zombie…

    One more cask option for this weekend: We’re putting a cask of our Tippler Summer Ale on the bar at Covenhoven this Sunday June 23rd for Josh Bernstein’s going away party.

      Cheers John, I will update the snapshot.

      Do you have a tapping time for this event?

      1. John

        The event runs from 12-6 so I imagine they’ll tap it at opening.
