... a monthly event for the beer blogging community begun by Stan Hieronymus at Appellation Beer, and co-moderated with Jay Brooks at the Brookston Beer Bulletin.
On the first Friday of each month, a predetermined blogger hosts The Session, chooses a specific, beer-related, topic, invites all bloggers to write on it, and posts a roundup of all the responses received.
For more information and to host a Session, go to the archive page at the Brookston Beer Bulletin
This month's topic is Cask-conditioned ale:
beer brewed from traditional ingredients, matured by secondary fermentation in the container from which it is dispensed, and served without the use of extraneous carbon dioxide.
as defined by CAMRA (the Campaign For Real Ale)
beer consumer advocacy group in the UK
To participate, write a blog piece (500 to 1,000 words would be fine), then link to it here, today, as a comment. After all submissions are in, I'll collate, analyze, comment, summarize, and link back. Some non-bloggers have responded and sent comments. If you have some, include photos of casks, of imbibing their contents, of filling them.
My thanks go to Stan Hieronymus and Jay Brooks. They have organized, encouraged, and gently cajoled to get this resource —The Session: Beer Blogging Friday— on the web, each month since March of 2007.
