About FirkFest

From Greg [email protected]: While standing in a 200 person line for a cask of Noble Ale Works Naughty Sauce at a beer festival this past summer, it dawned on me. Orange County needs a proper cask ale festival. I brought the idea up with Brad Kominek of Noble and either he was really excited about the idea or had to use the bathroom really bad, I still don’t know. We threw name ideas back and forth before finally landing on FirkFest. I think Brad named it, as he comes up with great names for everything.

Why a cask ale festival? A cask is simply a vessel filled with liquid meant to be served within a day or so once opened. Brewers fill the cask with beer for conditioning and then can treat it like a blank canvas; adding fresh hops, blending beers, adding tea/coffee or other creative adjuncts, or whatever.  It’s a one time shot to try something new and fun.

My number one goal as OCBeerBlog is to grow craft beer in Orange County. What a better way to do it than a highly focused beer celebration at a great location with an awesome non-profit to support. We are proud to announce Inspire Artistic Minds has taken over our non-profit support! They have many great events throughout Orange County, click to read about their great support to budding artists, chefs, cicerone/somm’s and more!
