Alys Beach Firkin Fête

Friday, October 25, 2019 at 6:30 PM – 9 PM: A new experience awaits residents and visitors to South Walton this fall at Alys Beach - a new event thoughtfully designed for curious craft beer lovers and people who simply live and love to sample outstanding culinary and cocktail creations in an extraordinary setting.

The inaugural Alys Beach 'Firkin Fête' will take place on Friday, October 25, with participating breweries showcasing their special brews in a distinctive cask, called a firkin, which holds 10.8 gallons of beer. Unique in the sense that the beer goes through a secondary fermentation in the firkin, the end result is a surprise to all. Not the brewer nor the taster knows what lies within until the firkin is tapped - an air of excitement and buzz wafts through the crowd as people line up to be among the first to sample what could be the next great ale. An eclectic and unique tasting experience in an elegantly rustic setting, Firkin Fête will surely become a great tradition for ushering in cooler, crisper weather along our beautiful Gulf Coast beaches.
