The folks at Big Boss Brewing Co. in Raleigh are assembling over 30 cask conditioned ales for the Third Annual Casktoberfest Celebration this Thursday October 3rd. Brewers and staff at Big Boss Brewing have put together another stellar beer line up. For the 2013 edition of Casktoberfest Big Boss has put together the company’s largest selection of firkins for the one night event including a set of two “Uber-Firkins” containing 55 gallons of beer each.
The first 20 casks have been announced on the event website: http://www.casktoberfest.com/bung/
Casktoberfest is the Big Boss way of honoring two significant brewing cultures in one event: National Cask Ale Week in the United Kingdom and Oktoberfest in Munich. This year they are also using the celebration as a way to benefit and bring attention to the North Carolina Mountains to Seal Trail!
With Casktoberfest you’ll experience a uniquely American approach to these world traditions and offer a variety of cask conditioned brews in a festive, beer-hall atmosphere complete with German cuisine provided by our neighbors at Catering Works.
