30 Apr Union Brewing Co. Announces Date & Time for Highly Anticipated ‘Carmel Firkin Fest’
For Immediate Release: Union Brewing Co., in partnership with Indiana On Tap, is excited to introduce their inaugural Carmel Firkin Fest on Saturday, Sept. 1st, 2018. The event will take place from 1:30 pm – 5pm.
This first-of-its-kind event will be held on the property of Union Brewing Co. at 622 S Rangeline Rd., Suite Q, Carmel, IN 46032. The event will be celebrated both indoors and outdoors within Union Brewing’s tap room and their crowd-favorite outdoor patio area. Their tap room will be closed to the general public during the event.
The event will feature an eclectic group of 9-10 Indiana breweries all serving their beers from casks only. Attendees will be allowed unlimited samples of all the beers with nearly 30 unique beers expected to be available.
This will be the first known event of its kind in both Carmel and Indiana and only 225 tickets will be available to purchase.
“We’ve wanted to create and bring an intimate event like this to our brewery for a long time,” shared Nathan Doyle, owner of Union Brewing Co. “We’re excited about the breweries participating and beer lineups we have planned. It’s going to be a special afternoon for us, the city of Carmel, and the entire Indiana craft beer community.”
Firkins are considered by many to produce the ‘craftiest’ beer in the craft beer world. These small, wooden or steel casks are used to both ferment the beer and to serve the beer. Beer from firkins is not filtered and often includes extra ingredients, such as spices, fruit, or even extra hops. Every beer finished and served from a firkin is completely unique. Even with the same ingredients, no two firkins are the same—so each beer available at this event will be a true one-of-a-kind tasting.
Live music will complement the event and food from local eateries will be available for purchase.
“We’re excited to partner with a brewery like Union Brewing Co. for an event that’s as unique as they are,” noted Indiana On Tap founder Justin Knepp. “This event will be one of the truest celebrations of craft beer,” he added.
Early Bird General Admission tickets for this premier event are now on sale for just $40. Prices will increase on July 1st. Interested attendees are encouraged to buy online, in advance. With so few tickets issued, the event is expected to sell out quickly.
All attendees must be 21 years of age or older to enter the event. Parking will be easy and plentiful with the large lot directly in front of the brewery.
