Reader comment – ‘craft’ keg beer

I was a bit taken aback by Mark Coxon’s article about keg beer. (Beer Matters May 2014). He seems to be advocating drinking keg beers simply because it has been brewed by a craft ‘small’ brewer.

Just to be clear. Any pint of keg beer sold is a pint of real ale that isn’t. I thought the Campaign for Real Ale was about promoting real ale and not suggesting folk embrance keg. It seems to be a sell out on everything CAMRA has stood for these past 3 decades.
