A little story about cask conditioned ale.
At the time of this story GA had a limit of 6% on alcohol in beers. I was in a certain port city, think Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, and went to a local brew pub to have a pint. It was just after Christmas and they had a cask conditioned ale on the bar list, something they had never had before.
I couldn't believe it, but considering myself lucky, I order a pint. Man, was that good stuff!! I called the waitress over and told her I loved the beer and said 'this ain't no 6% beer, ask the brewer what it really is and I won't tell nobody!' She came back and said it was 'in excess of' 9%. So I said, 'any way I can take some home?' 'Nope,' she said, 'ain't allowed!'
So I said, 'must be some way I can get some of this great beer outta here, how 'bout if I go home and bring back a jug of my own?' She said 'we can't fill a jug.' I persisted and it ended up that I went back with a gallon plastic milk jug and order 8 pints and proceed to put them one by one into that jug. I will always remember that as some of the best beer I have ever had, it being slightly illicit only adding to the flavor!!
