Cask for a Cause to Benefit the Scranton Animal Association
Fri, June 24 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
On the last Friday of every month, the entire proceeds of Cooper’s Firkin Fridays are donated to local non-profit organizations. 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, basket raffles, 50/50 raffles, and more!
A local restaurant 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 Cooper’s Seafood House on the last Friday of every month.
WHAT is a firkin ale?
A firkin is a small keg, that holds about 10 gallons or so of cask-conditioned, 50°F beer. We source our firkins from breweries in our backyard to breweries across the country! 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.
At 5:00 p.m. the last Friday of every month a tap is hand-driven into the firkin with a mallet. A small hole is opened at the top and the beer flows!!! Try this tasty treat — real ale as it was meant to be!
