Next Saturday June 2nd you are invited to head over to the Burnside neighborhood, for the 5th Annual Firkin Fest at Rogue’s Green Dragon. This unique event offers you the consumer to enjoy naturally carbonated beers from familiar breweries while supporting this year’s charity the Buckman Elementary School through Food Services of America.
With two runs starting at11:00 AM & 3:00 your $10 nets you 3 hours of access to 11 different brewery provided cask beers. Bear in mind $10 only gets you 5 tickets for over 20 ounces of tastings (or 5 tastes x 4 ounces). As always with festival drink tickets can be purchased for additional tastes.
Included in the list is Firestone Walker, Good Life, Lompoc, Fire on the Mountain, Silver Moon, Rogue Ales, Track Town Ales, Columbia River, Green Dragon Brew Crew, Buckman Botanical Brewery, and the Rogue Farmstead Brewery, with more being added each week.
About the Firkin Fest format
Each brewery will present a beer of its choice, prepared in the traditional English cask-style. Unlike most draft beers, Firkin beers are unpasteurized, unfiltered, naturally carbonated in the cask, and served at cellar temperature, approximately 55 degrees.
Look for cheese and chocolate pairings to be offered as a compliment for your beers during the event as well.
