Firkin Friday at the Draught House

Lately, I've been checking out Firkin Fridays at the Draught House, which features a different cask-conditioned beer each week. I've been rewarded well for it. I love cask beer, and they've been getting in some so great stuff. I'd attend more, but it's always at 3pm, so work won't always allow for it. Like they say, "work is the curse of the drinking class."

This Friday's keg sounds pretty great. Message from Josh Wilson, the proprietor and brewer at Draught House:
this weeks offering is Oskar Blues Whiskey Barrel Dale's Pale Ale. Sounds strange, I know, but it has been well received. Check out the comments here.

It is also an exceptionally rare beer, not often seen outside Colorado. Tapping is @ 3pm, 7/24.

Also new and on tap,
Lagunitas A Little Sumpin' Sumpin', an awesome IPA made with wheat.
Later this week we will tap Green Flash Hophead Red, dry hopped with Amarillo.
Check out our lineup of house made wheat beers, from traditional (Weizenheimer), to hoppy (Edelweisse) to historic (Gose) to experimental (Black Wheat).
So there you have it. All you unemployed beer geeks get your butts down there. (And don't forget: It's on the No.3 bus route!)

For the most part the Firkin Friday beers last well into the weekend. Granted they aren't as cold and may be a little flat.

I had some of the Dale's whiskey cask last night, and it wasn't bad.
