15th Annual Bay Area Firkin Fest

Prepare your tastebuds, the 15th Annual Bay Area Firkin Fest is happening November 5th from 12-4pm! It's been a decade and a half of ridiculously awesome cask-conditioned beer and this year we're celebrating absurdity.

We've invited a handful of our favorite local breweries to show us what they think the "state of the firkin" is. They're crafting the most outlandish, original and thoroughly "Berkeley" beers they possible can, and you get to judge their work. These brews have never seen the light of day before, and probably never will again!

Proceeds of this event benefit the Alisa Ann Ruch Burn Foundation, a cause that needs our support now more than ever. Drink for a good cause and educate yourself on how you can help the victims of fires.

Tickets available at! Stay tuned for participating brewery list. Pre-sale package includes unlimited tastings of all competing beers, voting token and a signature glass to take home. Winner will be chosen by YOU so come experience the wacky world of firkins and help us pick the best brew!

Must be 21+ to drink, families with well-behaved children are welcome. We love your pets but please leave them at home.
