Daily firkin tapping at Dry Dock Brewing: Raspberry Porter

To commemorate American Craft Beer Week, Dry Dock Brewery, at 15120 East Hampden Avenue in Aurora, is tapping a new firkin everyday until Sunday. Today's firkin will be Raspberry Porter.

For the beer-novice: Firkins are used to condition and serve cask ales -- beers that are unfiltered, naturally carbonated and use no CO2 or refrigeration.

These beers will only be available in the tap room and supplies are limited. Here's the full schedule:

Today: Raspberry Porter Thursday: Double Dry Hopped Double IPA Friday: Peanut Butter Cup Porter Saturday: Mango Pale Ale Sunday: Blake's Juniper Berry Wit

Each beer will be tapped at 3 p.m. and on Friday, Dry Dock will tap a second, to-be-announced firkin at 7 p.m.

Dry Dock recently announced plans for a major expansion; read about it here.
