Big Boss Brewing Casktoberfest 2012
Big Boss Brewing Announces October Fourth as date for Casktoberfest Celebration to benefit and bring attention to North Carolina’s Mountains to Sea Trail
Raleigh, NC – Big Boss Brewing, brewers of Bad Penny brown ale, High Roller India Pale Ale and the fall favorite Harvest Time Pumpkin Ale has chosen Thursday, October 4th to hold annual Casktoberfest event in Raleigh.
Casktoberfest is the Big Boss way of honoring two significant brewing cultures in one event: National Cask Ale Week in the United Kingdom and Oktoberfest in Munich.
With Casktoberfest you’ll experience a uniquely American approach to these world traditions as we offer a variety of cask conditioned brews in a festive, beer-hall atmosphere with the best German style food some of the area’s best food trucks can produce. For this year’s edition of Casktoberfest we’ve asked our local food trucks to prepare a special menu to match the beer-hall theme.
Food will be provided by Porchetta + Cafe Prost + Baguettaboutit + Lusty Monk Mustards!
For the 2012 edition of Casktoberfest Big Boss has assembled the company’s largest selection of firkins ever assembled in one place.
