WHAT IS A FIRKIN?
A firkin is a cask which holds nine imperial gallons. FIRKINS hold cask-conditioned beer. Cask is the container and this was the original method of storing and serving beer.
The beer's ingredients are allowed to mature naturally in the firkin, leaving the beer unfiltered and containing live yeast. The living yeast conditions the beer through a process called secondary fermentation and produces the CO2 naturally. No artificial carbonation allows you to taste the true flavor of the beer.
The beer is dispensed either by gravity or by a beer engine/hand pump.
FIRKIN FEST celebrates this method and allows you to try unique, one of a kind beers from your favorite local breweries!
ENJOY YOUR TASTING EXPERIENCE!!!
