From Firkfest Founder Greg Nagel @OCBeerBlog:

I can’t believe we’re doing a sixth Firkfest! This festival aims to highlight the best SoCal breweries with a twist: they bring one of kind cask ales that are only available at the event! Last year we took inspiration from the cocktail world, throwing out a fun Tiki-vibe. This year we’re switching things up with a dealers choice.

The food will take on a different approach with several of the area’s best chefs doing nachos…but with an international approach. Think Heritage BBQ doing pulled pork nachos, ADYA with Indian-style… For dessert, we’ll exclusively have Honey & Butter Macaron’s cute Airstream parked in the fest!

The other goal of the festival is to raise real money for real non-profits. Thus far we’ve raised over $40,000 for industry-specific groups like Inspire Artistic Minds and the OC Brewer’s Guild. Switching gears, Firkfest 2018 will be benefiting a 93 year Anaheim tradition: The Anaheim Fall Festival and Halloween Parade. I have a strong bond with Anaheim and its history and am stoked to support such a great non-profit and its hearty volunteers I live near.
