As anyone who attended Volo Cask Days 2008 this past weekend can attest, it was a fantastic event with a helluvalot of casks to sample from. There were so many, in fact, that even six sessions over the course of the weekend couldn’t drain them all, and a number of them weren’t tapped at all.
Sticking to the old adage of “waste not, want not”, Volo is continuing to serve beer from the casks that were tapped this weekend as long as they remain drinkable. Several of the casks tapped on Friday were already dumped on Monday, as Ralph at Volo didn’t feel that they were in a good enough state to be consumed, but there are a good number of casks still on the go, being sold for $4 a pint while quantities last.
Beyond that, here is the planned schedule for the remaining casks that weren’t tapped on the weekend:
