100% of cask proceeds will be given to team “Shooting for the Cure” of Relay for Life of Lower Carbon County
About the charity
Shooting for the Cure, was founded in 2012 to help support the American Cancer Society through their Relay for Life. Our goal is simple, to raise funds to help find a cure for this horrible disease. We began this team after photographing a Relay for Life event. Seeing a Relay first hand, the spirit and drive of these volunteers dedicated to helping others, left us speechless. That day, we knew we would form a team for the following Relay year. We shared our experience with our families and friends, asking them to join us in our quest. Each person on our team Relays for their own individual reason, however we are united by having dealt with cancer first hand, either personally or by watching a loved one battle.
We thank you for supporting our Team through this Cask Night.
Charity Cask Nights
Since June of 2006, once a month, the entire proceeds of a Fegley’s Brew Works firkin has been donated to a local non-profit organization. Better still, the non-profit recipient has the opportunity to present literature and banners, and have representatives on hand for an informal Q&A and info-session about their community work. This tradition, which continues in Bethlehem, will now be replicated in Allentown Brew Works!
A craft brewery draws its character and strength from its community, but it can also give back to the community and help create positive change. That’s the idea behind this series of benefit events that take place at the Allentown Brew Works every 1st Thursday of the month.
WHAT is a firkin ale?
A firkin is a small keg, holds about 9 gallons or so of cask-conditioned, 50°F beer. Our head brewer offers a hand pumped, cask-conditioned ale from a 10-gallon barrel called a firkin. The cask is always a special, one-of-a-kind beer connoisseur’s treat. It is available only until it runs dry, which could be just hours (or less) after it’s tapped.
WHY a firkin ale?
If you love beer then this is your chance to experience drinking a real ale!
Open up your senses to the hop and malt flavors released by drinking a beer from a hand-drawn firkin served at a respectable temperature.
Our brewers then work their magic to give each cask its own special character.
