Fegley’s Brew Works is proud to present the 3rd Annual Great Allentown Brew Works Cask Beer Festival this Saturday, March 16, 2013 from 4pm to 7pm with an exclusive VIP Hour from 3pm to 4pm. The event features over 32 cask and beer samples from over 15 brewers and breweries.
A highlight of this event will be the tapping of exquisite, one-of-a-kind beers and casks from Brewmaster Beau Baden and Brewer Lewis Thomas of Fegley’s Brew Works. In addition, invited breweries will be bringing along a selection of their cask beer creations just for this event. There will be a one hour VIP session prior to the event for attendees to speak intimately with the brewers on their brewing methods with hors d’oeuvres for dining. This annual event not only features cask beers, but a traditional, Irish themed buffet from the Executive Chef, Mike Honeywell, from 4:30pm to 6:30pm, entertainment from the O’Grady Quinlan School of Irish Dance, and many local vendors.
Celebrating its third year, Fegley’s Brew Works promises that this will be the biggest and best event yet. Asked about what makes this year different, owner Rich Fegley said, “We wanted to increase the scope of past years. We want to emphasize unique cask beer, and local business in a great environment.”
Cask or ‘real’ ales are naturally carbonated and aged in the keg – or typically the firkin (~10.8 gallon casks) – they are served from. This allows for a purer traditional taste. Being tapped straight from the cask, these ales do not require extra nitrogen or carbon dioxide pressure for serving and are typically served at a respectable temperature around 50 degrees. Cask conditioned beer is a traditional process with no added stabilizers, filtration or additives to make the beer less perishable – making them reminiscent of ales from the 19th century.
