Rogue Firkin Fest Coming 3/3

Rogue Firkin Fest Coming 3/3From Rogue:

Portland, OR . – On Saturday, March 3, 2018, Rogue Eastside Pub and Pilot Brewery will host Firkin Fest. The 11th annual celebration of cask-conditioning will feature over 20 unique beers, ciders and meads donated from Oregon independent makers, including Gigantic Brewing Company, Modern Times Beer, Ecliptic Brewing, Worthy Brewing, Baerlic Brewing, Green Dragon Brew Crew, Nectar Creek Mead, Cider Riot, Oregon City Brewing Co. and many more. All proceeds generated from the fest will go to Buckman Elementary School’s arts programs.

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 Fahrenheit. Herbs, chocolate, botanicals, hops and fruits are often added to the firkins to enhance an already delicious beer.

General admission for the event is $10 which includes five beer tickets, a commemorative taster glass and access to $8 growler fills of any of the Firkin Fest beers. Each taste is one ticket and additional tickets cost $1 each. The 11th annual Firkin Fest runs from 11am-6pm.

Very Impressive Firkin (VIF) admission is $25 which includes exclusive tastes of three special firkins, a meet-and-greet with the brewers, and some tasty food including oysters shucked by Rogue Nation President Big Al himself. The VIF room is open from 2-4pm, and only a limited amount of tickets are available.
VIF inclusions and the complete list of breweries will be announced on the
Facebook event page.
