      The Best Firkin Beer Festival

      Asheville Brews Cruise Presents...


      Firkin is another word for cask. Cask ale or cask-conditioned beer is the term for unfiltered and unpasteurized beer which is conditioned (including secondary fermentation) and served from a cask without additional nitrogen or carbon dioxide pressure. Cask ale may also be referred to as real ale. In other words, OLD SCHOOL BEER! We'll also be featuring barrel aged beer.

      The Best Firkin Beer Festival is a pre-prohibition era festival that will have old time music by, Blind Boy Chocolate and the Milk Sheiks, old time food from Eat Box Food Truck , Avery's Hot Dogs and pastries from Jack of the Wood Pub, and of course, old time beer.

      This festival is a fund raiser for Brother Wolf Animal Rescue, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting and enhancing the lives of companion animals and the people who love them.
