Ashley's of Westland Cask Ale Festival
  • Saturday, May 9nd from 2:00 - 6:00 pm

Ashely's of Westland created the Michigan Cask Ale Festival a number of years ago to showcase a third kind of beer beyond conventional draft and bottle: cask ale, also known as real ale. This event requires months of planning and working through their strong relationships with brewers and distributors. They travel throughout the state to personally deliver the casks to breweries for them to fill with unique, fresh beer and then put it all together the second Saturday in May.
