Firkin Fest West 2018 at the Sherbino
Cheers... Firkin Fest is back for 2018!! Cask Ale Festival where breweries from Western Colorado and beyond tap a special cask (Firkin) of real ale, made in the traditional way.
Firkin Fest is a fundraiser for the Sherbino worthy of a CHEERS!
Breweries from Western Colorado gather to share a cask of something special made to be poured from a traditional Firkin Cask. This style of beer is called real ale, and if you have never tried one you are in for a treat. Each brewery will make a special cask, some with inventive ingredients, others in a more traditional English Style. Cask ale conditions in the caks itself and has no artificial carbonation, and in most cases dispensed with a gravity spout. Air is allowed into the cask giving the ales more richness and complexity.
