Real ale mash tunsReal ale has a long history...

Real ale has been around a long, long time and certainly for at least 6,000 years.

It has probably been made for a lot longer ever since man first started farming and growing cereals which has its roots back in the Neolithic age. They obviously knew what they liked even back then!

Tryst IPA... and it has an even brighter future with a growing range of traditionally brewed cask conditioned real ales and bottled conditioned beers from the Tryst Brewery!

Real ale has been a feature of many cultures 

Real ale has been a feature of many cultures and was used in ancient Egypt to honour the dead and their ancestors in China. Their most favourite recipes have even been found interned in the tombs of  Egyption Pharoes, no doubt, to sustain them on their journey into the next life.

Earliest record of real ale brewing in Scotland

Saint Mungo, the patron saint of Scotland's oldest city, established a religious brotherhood in Glasgow in 540 AD. One of the brothers started brewing to supply his fellow monks establishing brewing as one of the oldest industry in Glasgow.

Cask conditioned beer - a natural product

Real ale is a natural product brewed using traditional ingredients and real ale fermentation vesselsfermented with yeast to convert the sugars to alcohol. It is left to mature in the cask (hence the term 'cask-conditioned') and undergoes secondary fermentation while being served in your 'local'.

It is this process which makes real ale unique amongst beers and develops the wonderful tastes and aromas which processed beers can never provide.

Traditional methods

Beer is produced from malted barley, hops, yeast and water. Other cereals and ingredients are often also used in various quantities and contributes to the wide selection of ales available. Flavourings such as spices and even fruit can also be used to give the finished beer its distinctive character.

Varied tastes, flavours and character

Bottled conditioned real aleReal ale is characterised by the wide and varied taste and flavours and there is generally one that suites your and every pallete.

Not all are to everyones taste but it is guaranteed you will find one of The Tryst Breweries real ales that just touches the spot!
