It’s Firkin February! All month long Colorado craft breweries will be releasing their firkins to the public. A firkin is a specific size of a cask, a ¼ of a barrel that often looks like a mini keg. Breweries are able to put their creativity in this vessel infusing beer with Philippine coconut, Sour Patch Kids, Ancho Chiles and mango, and more. $20 per firkin will be donated to the Colorado Brewers Guild.

Below are the breweries that will tap Firkins in February with more to come all month long. Check back as we will be adding more firkins throughout the month.
