Charity Cask Nights

Since June of 2006, the entire proceeds of the Bethlehem Brew Works first Thursday’s “First 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.

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 Bethlehem 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.
