Cask For A Cause – Catholic Social Services
November 25, 2016 @ 5:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Cooper’s Charity Cask Night
Come join us, raise a pint, and some much needed money, for Catholic Social Services!
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 the last Friday of every month.
There is no cover or fee to join us. Charity pints are sold for $6 and 100% is donated to the charity. Basket raffles and 50/50 raffles will also be held.
Through comprehensive and flexible programming, Catholic Social Services assists in strengthening family life and in helping individuals to reach their full potential. Aware of and sensitive to community changes, emerging needs and resource challenges, Catholic Social Services continues its role as advocate, promoting the spirit of collaboration and responding with appropriate action on behalf of those who are limited in power, voice and access.
WHAT is a firkin ale?
A firkin is a small keg, holds about 10 gallons or so of cask-conditioned, 50°F beer. Our firkins are provided by Susquehanna Brewing Company from Pittston PA! 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!
