About the Michigan Cask Ale Festival Ashley's created the Michigan Cask Ale Festival to showcase a third kind of beer beyond conventional draft and bottle: cask ale, also known as real ale. This event requires months of planning and working through our strong relationships with brewers and distributors. We travel throughout the state to personally deliver our own casks to breweries for them to fill with unique, fresh beer and then put it all together the second Saturday in May at this, the largest festival of its kind anywhere in Michigan
