FirkFest tapping 50+ casks this weekend in Anaheim


2015 FirkFest

FirkFest is nearly here! The third annual installment is a must for beer lovers in So Cal, bringing over 50 casks of beer from 30 local craft breweries. Held this year at the Farmers Park on Saturday, March 19 – and there are still general admission tickets for just $55 (but none will be sold at the door).

If you’re not familiar with FirkFest, the festival highlights “old World” beer serving techniques combined with new brewing trends and techniques. “Firkfest is filled with one-off beers, most of which are made just for the fest,” says organizer Greg Nagel of OCBeerBlog in a press release.

Pro tip: Get there early! The line forms early and the casks are limited – a lot of which are made just for this festival.
