Beer: Uerige Duffeldorf-Altftadt DoppelSticke served on cask

“This is a darker beer, a richer, full-bodied beer, with a smooth, malty finish. It’s a little on the sweeter side, not hoppy like an IPA, darker and sweeter and maltier,” Jasper Jones said of the German beer. With an 8.5 percent alcohol content, “it’s full-bodied, not a quick drink; it’s one to sit and sip
and enjoy.”

Norey’s serves the dark ale on-cask, not on-tap, European style. Jones said the beer garden has one cask and keeps various beers on rotation. She describes the cask as “…a more traditional way of serving beer. It’s separate from our tap system, which has the Co2. This is more of a room temperature, flatter beer. We have the mini keg with a hand-pump.”
