Bath Ales launches limited-edition micro casks

Bath Ales is launching its famous amber ale, Gem, in five litre micro casks. For a limited period, the micros are now available to order from Bath Ales’ online shop, while stocks last.

Gem (4.1% abv) is a well-balanced and full-bodied amber ale, with plenty of malty character. It’s brewed with all British hops; Goldings from Kent adds a subtle, aromatic spice. Fresh from Hare Brewery, this cask ale – just like you’d get in pub – is the perfect remedy for those who are missing the taste of draught beer from their local.

Georgina Young, Bath Ales’ head brewer, said: “With pubs closed across the country, we know real ale drinkers are missing the taste of a freshly-poured pint. However, until we’re able to visit our locals again, enjoying a micro cask at home is definitely the next best thing. Each cask is filled with nine pints of our flagship beer, Gem – which we’ve been brewing for 25 years. We hope that we can bring a little bit of comfort to beer lovers at this time, by delivering perfectly-conditioned cask beer direct to their doorstep.”

To pre-order a micro cask, visit Deliveries are available to homes nationwide from Monday 11th May.

For those who live locally, Bath Ales’ brewery shop is open as a collection point from Monday to Friday (1pm to 4.30pm). Customers can make an order and pay over the phone before collection, by calling 0117 947 4797.
