Bristol Announces 16th Annual Firkin Rendezvous on March 19

Bristol Brewing Company (1604 S Cascade Ave, Colorado Springs, CO 80905) proudly presents the 16th Annual Firkin Rendezvous, a Cask Ale celebration that will benefit the Colorado Brewers Guild, on Saturday March 19 from 1 to 5 p.m. Craft breweries from across the state will share their cask-conditioned ales.

“Bristol originally started this fest with the Guild because I’ve just always loved the art and history of the classic cask conditioned ales of England,” said Mike Bristol, Founder of Bristol Brewing. “And when you add in the great creativity and variety our Colorado breweries bring to these firkins, it makes for a really unique and fun afternoon.”

The cask conditioning of ales is a traditional British style of brewing that originated centuries ago when publicans lived above their pubs and made a life’s work out of tending their beers. Cask ales are fermented, conditioned and served in a firkin, a British cask size that is a ¼ of a barrel and often looks like a mini keg. 

Tickets for this event are now via Eventbrite. 100% of proceeds will benefit the Colorado Brewers Guild. 

For all ticketing options, guests must be 21+ to attend. There will be ample seating both inside and outside. 

  • VIP Admission ($60) includes entry into the festival at 1 p.m. before the rush, commemorative tasting glass, t-shirt, and lunch
  • General Admission ($45) includes entry into the festival from 2 to 5 p.m., commemorative tasting glass, and lunch
  • Designated Driver ($15) includes entry into the festival at 1 p.m. and lunch.
