7th Annual Firkin Fest
May 15 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm$25 – $30
The craft beer festival features local and regional breweries showcasing their creativity by adding unique flavors or spins on distinctive cask ale in a firkin, a barrel made of stainless steel that holds 10.8 gallons of beer. Firkin’s hail from the tradition of cask brewing and use natural fermentation processes to carbonate the beer. The liquid is typically served slightly below room temperature and will have a smoother, lighter carbonated body due to the natural carbonation process.
This year’s participating breweries include Back Forty Beer Co., Avondale Brewing Company, Braided River Brewing Company, Fairhope Brewing Company, Ghost Train Brewing Company, Yellowhammer Brewing Company, Props Brewery, Folklore Brewery, Oyster City Brewing Company, Black Warrior Brewing Company, Wicked Weed Brewing, Second Line Brewing, Wild Leap Brew Co., and Urban South Brewery.
Doors for the festival will open at 2pm with a tapping ceremony at 2:30pm. Sampling ends at 5:30pm followed by an awards ceremony. Additionally, there will be Live Music from East LA Fadeaway, Cornhole, Stein Hoisting and a Keg Toss competition. The all-inclusive Firkin Fest tickets are $25 in advance, $30 at door and includes entrance to the festival, samples of each firkin, crawfish, sample glass, koozie, literature, games and live music.
