Sourcing a barrel (or two) of real ale 6 years 11 months ago #1

First post here and looking for some guidance and direction.

My sister in law is getting married at the end of June in Kenmare. Fiancé is English and a big real ale fan. He's looking to source a keg or two for the wedding.

Anyone have any suggestions?

You mean a cask, right? <!-- s;) --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_wink.gif" alt=";)" title="Wink" /><!-- s;) -->

Dungarvan don't keg/force carbonate anything they make, so they'd be your first stop.
Mountain Man and Black's of Kinsale are handier to Kenmare.

To me, installing the hand pumps/beer engine seems like a bigger hurdle than sourcing the casks, but there are members here more knowledgeable than I about such things.

Vanguard[/url:gqxtms7a] both distribute and install taps for several brewers and, though they do key kegs, they might be able to help.

Since January, haven't seen any myself yet though, just online. They are using key kegs apparently, which means they can keg condition and not have to worry about cleaning yeast out of the keg after.

But still don't force carbonate.
