The Butcher’s Dog Beers  

 CASK CONDITIONED BEER 

On average we will have 50 different beers each month, with a choice of pale, bitter and darker ale, giving an even greater selection to choose from! Cask conditioned ale is beer that is brewed from traditional ingredients and matured in the cask from which it is served. This means that it is fresh and unfiltered and therefore has a unique flavour. 
 
Cask ale is naturally conditioned as a by-product of the secondary fermentation that takes place inside the cask. It is then served directly, without the use of extraneous carbon dioxide or chemical treatments of any sort. What you are tasting is a live product, full of flavour and character: beer in its natural state. 
 
A microbrewery or craft brewery is a brewery that produces a small amount of beer. Exact definitions vary, but the terms are typically applied to breweries that are much smaller than large-scale corporate breweries and are independently owned. Such breweries are generally characterized by their emphasis on quality, flavour and brewing technique. 
 
The microbrewing movement began in the United Kingdom in the 1970s — although traditional artisan brewing existed in Europe for centuries — and subsequently spread to other countries. As the movement grew and some breweries expanded their production and distribution, the more encompassing concept of craft brewing emerged. A related term, "brewpub", refers to a pub or restaurant that brews its own beer for sale on the premises. 
 
There are 37 micro breweries within a 30 mile radius of Driffield! We source our ales mainly from them, but also regularly have other guest ales from smaller country-wide breweries. We change the type of ale and brewery after each cask is finished so every time you visit The Butcher's Dog you'll find something different.
