Moe’s Original BBQ and Budweiser Busch Distributing announce the 7th Annual Firkin Festival on Saturday, May 15th at 701 Spring Hill Avenue in downtown Mobile. Benefitting Restaurant Workers’ Community Foundation, the craft beer event features local and regional breweries showcasing their creativity by adding unique flavors or spins on distinctive cask ale in a firkin, a barrel made of stainless steel that holds 10.8 gallons of beer. Firkin’s hail from the tradition of cask brewing and use natural fermentation processes to carbonate the beer. The liquid is typically served slightly below room temperature and will have a smoother, lighter carbonated body due to the natural carbonation process. This year’s participating breweries include Back Forty, Avondale, Braided River, Fairhope, Ghost Train, Yellowhammer, Props, Folklore, Oyster City, Black Warrior, Wicked Weed, Second Line, Wild Leap, and Urban South.
Doors for the festival will open at 2pm with a tapping ceremony at 2:30pm. Sampling ends at 5:30pm followed by an awards ceremony. Additionally, there will be Live Music from East LA Fadeaway, Cornhole, Stein Hoisting and a Keg Toss competition. The all-inclusive Firkin Fest tickets are $25 in advance (eTix or Moe’s BBQ), $30 at door and includes entrance to the festival, samples of each firkin, crawfish, sample glass, koozie, literature, games and live music.
