Thanks Barry for the info. However, cask ale doesn't keep well. It just doesn't. Maybe you're willing to put up with the deterioration, but it doesn't mean it keeps well. As soon as air gets to it it's dying. If you buy it from the pub round the corner and take it home and drink it, fine. But not keeping it for longer than a few hours, unless it's high in alcohol (but it's still better in the pub). I remember weirdos at beer fests that would go round filling up those old panda pop bottles to then take home and drink hours later. Some even swapped with their mates that went to other beer festivals for ticks. I started refusing them when I worked. This is why cask ale is superior to keg in my view. Fresh is best. 

PET bottles in the Czech Republic are excellent. These are generally filled from the tanks or via taps but they have high levels of CO2 which fills any vacuum to avoid being spoiled. They need to be kept cold and don't last long but they're the best way to drink Czech beer if you can't visit the pub. Bottled (traditional) Czech beer is just wrong.
