This year is going to be bigger than ever, with extra casks on offer – and new ones being tapped during each session. They’ve also got Michael Webster of Bar Raval on board to do curated “Casktails”, special cocktails served directly from the cask in partnership withour friends at Dillon’s Distillery. We reached out to some of our brewer friends to get a sneak peek at what they’ll be pouring at this years’ festival. Here’s what they said!
- Stephen Rich, Brewmaster at Cowbell Brewing Co. in Blythe let slip that they’ll be bringing two Bourbon Barrel Aged Beers. According the Rich, they’ll be “two different styles, but both big, potent, and well matured – one Midnight Black and one Mahogany Brown.”
- Meanwhile, our friends at Beau’s All Natural are coming down from Vankleek Hill with a dry-hopped IPA with Eldorado and an organic cherry stout
- On the cider front, Thomas Wilson, head cider maker at Spirit Estate Cidery in Headwaters is bringing six cask ciders, including ‘Kings Black Heart’, a Kingston Black with black plums and ‘Golden Nutcracker’, a chestnut crabapple with wild honey. We’ll take one of each please!
The 14th Annual Cask Days Beer Festival returns to the Evergreen Brick Works on October 19th-21st. Get tickets here!
