March 30th, The Happy Gnome’s parking lot, a heated tent filled with beer...Firkin Fest returns!

The Happy Gnome is planning on over 75 firkins this year, with a wide variety of styles & flavors. Over 30 breweries will fill firkins for the festival! Firkin "juice" is cask-conditioned ale, meaning the carbonation in the beer comes from the secondary fermentation, which takes place inside the firkin. The brews are unfiltered, and unpasteurized. Firkins require great care and this festival is meant to showcase the complexity and versatility of cask conditioned ale. The brewers take extra time to create these firkins for the fest, and we are proud to support them in their craft beer expertise. We purchase every firkin that is poured at Firkin Fest, and we thank the breweries for their commitment to creating unique cask-conditioned ale for the festival.

The entrance for Firkin Fest will be our MacKubin parking lot entrance, which provides the best space for additional lines to move our guests into Firkin Fest faster!

As always, we have as much beer as is in the firkins...first come, first serve. Firkin Fest is a tasting event, where you can come and learn about the brewer’s intention for the beer, so please come and enjoy these unique one-of-a-kind beers. Tent opens at 12pm and we hope to have all the firkin juice gone by 6pm.

Cost: $50
