Best Firkin Friends Beer Festival
Hosted by Bellevue State Park and brand new for this year, the BFF Beer Festival will feature rare cask offerings some of the best folks in beer. Confirmed breweries include a mix of local favorites and some folks who are truly hard-to-find in the mid-Atlantic, such as Funky Buddha from Florida and Beavertown all the way over in the UK. Guests will be treated to ten samples of these unique beers. Passes for the beer festival will be available for an advanced purchase of $15. Capacity is limited and is expected to sellout, so get your tickets now!
Cask ales are sort of the OGs of analog beer, getting it’s carbination via a second fermentation inside the cask rather than adding nitrogen or carbon dioxide pressure. This unique conditioning takes a little bit more time, but gives the beer a soft and velvety mouthfeel that’s oh-so-delicious.
