The Happy Gnome is planning to have their 2nd annual Firkin Fest on Saturday March 21st, from 2-close. $5 entrance fee.  They are still working out the details of how many breweries and firkins will be attending.

Surly line up: 16 Grit, Bitter Brewer, Tea-bagged Furious, and Oak-aged Bender
Flat Earth line up: Double Dry Hopped Angry Planet, IPA, Black Helicopter

According to The Happy Gnome they’ve lined up 25 breweries that will be bringing at least 55 brews for your drinking pleasure.


  1. YES! Looking forward to this again! Firkins Forever! (copyright Michael Gause, wink wink)

  2. Great! I was hoping it would happen again.

  3. Duke says:

    Cant wait…Im pretty sure I had a great time at the last one!

  4. Kris says:

    Woo hoo! And on a Saturday this time!

  5. ryan says:

    Yay! I THINK I’ll be in town for this one unless I can swing a free spot on the KQ/Hoigaard’s ski trip…

  6. DanK says:

    I guess I’m going to have to tell my brother to get married on a different day. That’s what the best man is for.

  7. Mag says:

    Atta boy Dan. Or you could bring the bride and groom over for a few drinks before, after, or during the event. The parts I remember from last year were fun. I was told I had fun during the parts I don’t remember too.

  8. bRad says:

    What were the beer prices last year?

  9. Chad says:

    This year it’s a $5 entry, $1 tickets, 1 ticket a pour. Sounds great!

    I’d like to say that it’s merely a coincidence that the 21a will be my sober cab on Saturday, but I wish that it wasn’t dumb luck.

  10. Just spoke with Happy Gnome. They said that they have a printed sheet of participating brewers available. Seems brewers are sending in info up until the last minute. I’ll be picking one up on the way home. The list of brewers on the Happy Gnome’s splash page is just a few of who will be there. WOOO HOOOOO!

  11. Chris says:

    Are all of the brews local/regional, or will there be any from the UK? If so, any idea which?

  12. Chris, all of the one’s I’ve seen thus far have been domestic brews. However, one never knows until one is under the tent!
