What Exactly is a “Tiki Beer Fest”???

One thing is for sure, Firkfest doesn’t like being the same festival every year. We’ve done a chili cook off, a picnic on the park, and this year we’re getting groovy with some tropical vibes. On top of delicious fresh real ale, breweries will add tropical-note hops, tropical fruit, nuts, and possibly rum chips!

Tropical-style casks aren’t something new at the fest, however. These refreshing beers have always played a part. Here’s some of our favorite past-casks that made their one-off debut!
