Best Export Cask Beer (2003)

The Painted Bench

Cask-conditioned beer remains a small niche treat, but the Painted Bench and the Wynkoop Brewing Co. have teamed up to change that. The Bench hosts Wynkoop's lone off-site hand pump, dispensing delicious pours of cask-style ESB for visitors to the restaurant's antique Fountain Room. The beer engine gives real ale lovers an extra option for old-school beer; it's a move more breweries should embrace.
