What the firk is a FIRKIN, you say?
Well…in simple terms, it’s a 10.8 gallon keg. Not very exciting. What IS exciting is what these breweries put in the firkin – delicious cask-conditioned ale that is not filtered, clarified, pasteurized, or force carbonated; also known as REAL ALE.
Tickets include a sampler mug for unlimited firkin pours, chef-curated buffet, and more!!
