Introducing Firkin Thursdays

by Ben on November 14, 2012

We’re excited to announce a program we’ve wanted to do from the very first days we started planning West Sixth: Firkin Thursdays!

Each Thursday, we’ll be releasing a special, one-of-a-kind cask ale in our taproom. We’ll tap it at 3pm, and will serve it only until it runs out — one day only. Come on down, each one should be quite fun.

What’s a Firkin / Cask ale? A firkin is a type of keg that contains “real ale” — a beer that is naturally carbonated by putting the beer in the sealed cask, or firkin, before the beer is finished. The carbon dioxide produced by the fermentation is what then carbonates the beer, causing a different type of carbonation when compared to the rest of our beers. This also provides an opportunity to add a little something special to the beer – to have some fun and augment the flavor.

This week we’re offering our IPA dry hopped with Amarillo. It is a tasty one for sure. So come on down — get here early — and try it on Thursday!

Will this be going on December 6th? I’d love to come by and drink some brew!

Also, if it is going on, what’s being served?
