Our stainless steel 40L cask firkins are produced in Hereford, UK by Hereford Cask Ltd

The container body is made from three parts (a skirt and two pressings). The shive-plate is welded on the inside to form a smooth draining surface, before the second pressing is welded on. The chimbs are welded on last. The height is generally 462mm and overall diameter of 425mm, making them squatter than the aluminium or deep drawn types.

British beer of the real variety is normally sold in casks which are bellied or barrel shaped, a tradition which dates back to the days of the wooden casks. The shape is ideal for settling out the sediments within, and for assisting in rolling the container along the floor.
