2016 Day of the Living Ales (Recap)

Congratulations to the winners of the 2016 Day of the Living Ales. Forty-six cask ales were sampled by attendees over 2 sessions. Attendees voted on their top three favorite beers. Once the votes were tallied, awards were announced for the top two beers over 6% ABV and the top two beers at or under 6% ABV. In addition, the beer that best exemplified a cask beer based on condition, clarity, and quality as determined by the cellar staff was awarded the Golden Tut.
