The 6th Annual Firkin Festival, presented by Moe’s Original Bar B Que and Budweiser Busch Distributing, will be held on Saturday, April 6th at 701 Spring Hill Avenue. Benefiting the American Cancer Society, the festival features participating breweries showcasing distinctive cask ale in a firkin, a barrel made of stainless steel that holds 10.8 gallons of beer. Firkins are unique in the sense that the beer goes through a secondary fermentation in the vessel. This year’s participating breweries include Avondale Brewing Company, Back Forty Brewing Company, Fairhope Brewing Company, Black Warrior Brewing, Druid City Brewing Company, Ghost Train Brewing, Grayton Beach Brewing, Props Brewing Company, Straight to Ale Brewing Company, Yellowhammer Brewing Company and Interstellar Brewing Company.

Doors open at 2pm with a tapping ceremony at 2:30pm. Sampling ends at 5:30pm followed by an awards ceremony. The all-inclusive Firkin Fest tickets are $22 in advance, $25 at door and includes entrance to the festival, samples of each firkin, crawfish, sample glass, koozie, literature and live music.

Located in the upper part of Dauphin in downtown Mobile, Moe’s Original Bar B Que features a Southern soul food revival with smoked meats, down home sides and desserts prepared fresh daily. The 7400 square foot venue is also a popular nightlife spot with full premium bars, high definition TVs and live music.
