Tonight: Breckenridge Brewery rolls out monthly firkins for First Friday
Breckenridge Brewery rolled out a new monthly firkin program during the Great American Beer Festival last year that is designed to play off the First Friday art walks that take place on the first Friday of every month in the Art District on Santa Fe.
Anyone who comes into the brewery, which is located in the district, after 4 p.m. on First Friday can try a free sample of a beer that has been conditioned with a new or unusual ingredient in a cask (otherwise known as a firkin). Pints are also available for purchase for $3 before 6 p.m. and for $4 after that. the First Friday Art Walks run from 6 to 9 p.m.
Today's firkin will be a version of the brewery's renowned Agave Wheat infused with fresh raspberries. Previous firkins have included: Lucky U IPA with ghost peppers; 471 IPA with cinnamon sticks and dry hopped with millennium hops; and Christmas Cookie, the brewery's Christmas Ale aged with Christmas cookie spices.
Hops & Pie, which is located on Tennyson Street, has had a similar First Firkin Friday in its own art district for the past year and a half.
