Colorado Brewers Guild Announces Firkin February Fundraiser

The Colorado Brewers Guild (CBG), a nonprofit trade organization for independent craft breweries in the State of Craft Beer, is announcing member breweries that are participating in Firkin February.

What and When: It’s Firkin February! All month long Colorado craft breweries will be releasing their firkins to the public. A firkin is a specific size of a cask, a ¼ of a barrel that often looks like a mini keg. Breweries are able to put their creativity in this vessel infusing beer with Phillipine coconut, Sour Patch Kids, Ancho Chiles and mango, and more. $20 per firkin will be donated to the Colorado Brewers Guild.

Below are the breweries that will tap Firkins in February with more to come all month long. Keep an eye out on the CBG’s website for additional firkins.

As more member breweries release their firkins, we’ll be sure to let you know. The full list of participating breweries offering firkins can also be available on the CBG’s website.

Why: Independence matters! Craft breweries are vital to our economy. The first few months of the year are typically lean months for a brewery and the additional layer of the pandemic has only exacerbated this. Support your local craft brewery, and the Colorado Brewers Guild, by attending firkin releases this February.
