Should CAMRA embrace Keg 2.0?

I would comment on the latest rash of yay-for-keg blogs, but I decided to post this video instead. It is less irritating and repetitive.


  1. I think that's the sort of approach that will put off anyone ever bringing it up as a serious point of debate within CAMRA.

  2. I'm fairly positive on the issue of "craft" keg (I think it's particularly useful for pubs that don't have appropriate cellaring, turnover or clientele for cask) and I'm neither a huge fan of CAMRA nor even entirely convinced of their continued relevance, but I can't understand why many bloggers are so obsessed with getting them to support keg. They're an organisation that exists to support cask ale (rather than "good beer" per se) and regardless of what I think of their modus operandi or of high quality keg, I think that's a valuable endeavour. Even if I didn't, I wouldn't be so arrogant as to assume an organisation ought to support my particular enthusiasm when it falls outside of its state aims and objectives. If people want an organisation to support craft keg, why not start one? It's what the cask enthusiasts did way back when.

  3. Thank you for posting that video, Rob, I will now know what my 12-year-old daughter is on about if she ever mentions it.

    Strangely appropriate Word Verification word: scutt.

    "Nyan nyan ninna ninna ninna ninna nyan nyan ..."

  4. You given my four-year-old endless hours of entertainment.

    Endless hours.
