If you were to search the Yakima hop site for the word tropical, you probably wouldn’t be surprised to see the word as a descriptor for over 25 hop varietals. This fact is the inspiration for this year’s Firkfest (all cask) beer festival this weekend in Anaheim. The beautiful thing about a cask beer fest is every beer is created for the event, over fifty casks in total will be tapped at the three-time sellout event, this year focusing on tropical vibes and Tiki-cocktail inspired beers.
The event supports the Orange County Brewer’s Guild, which is set to have OC Beer Week late May of 2017.
The beer list is live and boasts a good mix of traditional real ales, tropical fruit and coconut additions, various POG concoctions, and extreme ingredients like Kahlua smoked pork and fennel fronds. Food is extra, and is hand-picked for the event from local beer and foodie spots HATCH, The Iron Press, Salt & Ash, and Adya – Fresh Indian Flavors.
Discount code ‘boozeblog’ knocks ten dollars off of the ticket price, so don’t wait as the event sells out!
