SOLD OUT: Special Cameron's Cask Night

Can you believe it's already been over 1 year since Cameron's Brewing Co. initiated their monthly Cask Night? I can't. And I am embarrassed to say that I have only ever made it to one, and that was to film a video podcast. The Cask Nights have been so successful that members of the Editor's Circle, for the Golden Tap Awards, awarded the Oakville brewery a special award this past summer.

Everyone knows the story right. You pay $5, which gets you a pint of the cask, two Cameron's bottles, some food that gets prepared by Whole Food Markets and a tour of the brewery. Your presence also gets you a discount at their retail store. The casks are always creative, made with a variety of ingredients, and from all accounts they are well balanced.

Well, tomorrow night Cameron's has promised something special; a secret cask made to the preference of their most devout fans. You see last month the Cameron's blog put out a call for suggestions and ideas regarding what they should consider brewing for the 14th edition and responses included a vanilla porter, a barley wine, and a scottish ale. Something to go along with the weather. Sounds interesting.

However, for those of you wanting to go but didn't RSVP, it appears it may be too late; "We are at our capacity for tomorrow's event, but people are more than welcome to RSVP for our Cask Night on January 29th," stated Mike Laba, marketing and promotions at Cameron's.
