I was watching an old episode of The Beer Hunter with Michael Jackson today. He was in England for the Great British Beer festival. There were over 200 beers there and all of the beers were in casks. He went to several different pubs and all the beers there were in casks as well. So my questions are: Is beer in England still like this? Is all or a great majority of beer in England served from casks? Why is cask beer in the United States so rare? It seems that casks are an oddity or a luxury in the United States. Additionally, it seems that american brewers just use casks to infuse their beers with honey or chocolate or fruit. Is this ruining cask beer in the U.S.? Thanks for the help.
