What is Real Ale?

Real Ale is cask conditioned or bottle conditioned beer. What does that mean? Basically after the beer has been brewed and conditioned at the brewery it is loaded into casks and sent straight to the pub. It is not filtered or pasturised like most lagers and keg beers, what difference does this make? Filtering removes half the flavour and taste and pasturising it then removes the other half, so those lagers and keg beers have had all the taste removed unlike real ale which is packed full of it.


Rugby CAMRA campaigns to promote real ale, encourages local pubs to sell it and supports the breweries in the area that produce it.
