Presentation: Cask Conditioned Ales (aka "Real Ale") with Mary Beth Keefe and Tim Burnett from The Granite Brewery and Tied House

We are excited to have both Mary Beth Keefe and Tim Burnett of The Granite Brewery & Tied House talk to us about Cask Conditioned Ales this month. Mary Beth is the Brewmaster at The Granite Brewery, a family-owned, OG Toronto Craft Brewpub that recently celebrated its 31st anniversary in August. Mary Beth got her start filling casks while still in grade school, and has held every job title at the Granite at some point. Tim started at The Granite Brewery as a cellar hand in 2018, became an assistant brewer shortly thereafter, and is now the Brewery Operations Manager. He specializes in long brew days and creative solutions for a 30-year old brewery in an even older building, often at the same time.
