No need to buy a plane ticket to London to try a real English style ale, just head over to Van Nuys and visit Macleod. When you’re there you’ll get a taste of traditional cask ale and learn how to enjoy beer served with lower natural carbonation and at room temp (around 50 degrees). They also serve draft beer (served at 38 degrees). As an added bonus, they have rotating food trucks daily.
A favorite: The Session Gap – their Ordinary Bitter that’s remarkably mild and totally delicious.
