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 to taste traditional cask ale and learn how to enjoy beer served with lower natural carbonation and at room temp (around 50 degrees). Their beer lineup is well-rounded with lots of normal draft beer offerings (served at 38 degrees). As an added bonus, they have rotating food trucks every day.
