Handpump Hijack

Carlsberg Marstons Brewing Company have announced plans to sell keg beer branded Fresh Beer through cask handpumps. CAMRA need your help to campaign against these misleading products. The beers in the ‘Fresh Ale’ range for the initial launch are Wainwright Gold, Wainwright Amber and Hobgoblin. These beers will still be sold as genuine cask in some venues so please look for the ones branded Fresh Ale. At the moment, you can help by doing the following: 

  • Let us know if you come across ‘Fresh Ale’ in your local. You can do this by using the ‘Send an email to the CAMRA branch’ button at the bottom of the relevant WhatPub venue page to alert us.

  • If in doubt, Ask if it’s Cask. We need consumers to make licensees aware of the issue of misleading dispense and explain why you won’t be buying it.

There is a more detailed article on the main CAMRA website.
