FirkFest - Festival of Cask Beer 2014

Greg Nagel, otherwise known as the talented Mr. Awesome who runs the OC Beer Blog, put on his very first craft beer festival this past Saturday. I must admit that I was a bit curious about the experience of only drinking cask beer at a fest, since the beer is usually not as cold and not as carbonated as kegged and bottled beer. Turns out, there were a LOT of really flavorful, adjunct variations of well known local brews, as well as many beers made specifically for the festival that were all just spectacular. I was really blown away.

All in all, the event was a great experience, and Greg, as well as his army of volunteers, did a superb job of making it happen. Big thanks also go out to the kick-ass mayor of Anaheim, California, Tom Tait, who's a big supporter of craft beer and the craft beer scene. The setting for the festival was spectacular.

I posted some photos on my Flickr page of the event. The link is below. Click on it--it works.

Cheers, Greg, and cheers to FirkFest!
