Inaugural Firkin Fête at Alys Beach Oct 24 & 25
October 21, 2019 by SoWal Staff
A new experience with fun, food, music, and a unique tasting hits South Walton this fall at Alys Beach.
The inaugural Alys Beach Firkin Fête on October 24th & 25th is an event thoughtfully designed for curious craft beer lovers and people who simply love to sample outstanding culinary and cocktail creations in an extraordinary setting. At the Beach!
Firkin is an odd word, and maybe new to you. But in craft beer circles, it's a hallowed word used to refer to a cask that holds a surprise ale.
A firkin holds 10.8 gallons of beer and is unique in that the beer goes through a secondary fermentation in the firkin, and the end result is a surprise to all. Neither the brewer or the taster knows exactly what tasty treat lies within until the firkin is tapped - an air of excitement and buzz wafts through the crowd as people line up to be among the first to sample what hopes to be the next great ale.
An eclectic and unique tasting experience in an elegant setting, Firkin Fête promises to become a great tradition for ushering in cooler, crisper weather along our beautiful Gulf Coast beaches. It will be a weekend of live music and food accompanied by a unique tasting experience as we tap firkins of beer, paired with wine, bourbon and craft cocktails.
