The Spotted Pig Bitter tastes like a classic English bitter, grainy and very drinkable. Because it’s a cask ale, its carbonation is very light and natural (unlike keg beer, which is pressurized and forcefully carbonated with CO2).
Cask ales, also known as “real ales,” are neither pasteurized nor filtered. They must be served fresh and, therefore, are usually found close to the brewery from which they originate.
Like most all real ales, the Spotted Pig Bitter is best enjoyed at cellar temperature, and it’s a perfect complement to the delicious burgers served at both the Breslin and the Spotted Pig in Manhattan, just a few miles from the Brooklyn Brewery.
