Local brewery Bath Ales is launching its famous amber ale Gem in special five-litre micro casks for a limited period, available to order from their online shop while stocks last.
Fresh from the Hare Brewery in Warmley, the cask ale, just like you’d get in a pub, is being labelled as the perfect remedy for those who are missing the taste of draught beer from their local.
Georgina Young, Bath Ales’ head brewer, said: “With pubs closed across the country, we know real ale drinkers are missing the taste of a freshly-poured pint.
“However, until we’re able to visit our locals again, enjoying a micro cask at home is definitely the next best thing.
“Each cask is filled with nine pints of our flagship beer, Gem – which we’ve been brewing for 25 years.
“We hope that we can bring a little bit of comfort to beer lovers at this time, by delivering perfectly-conditioned cask beer direct to their doorstep.”

Customers can make an order and pay over the phone before collection, by calling 0117 947 4797.
