Rogue Hosts Fourth Annual Firkin Fest


Rogue will be hosting the 4th annual Firkin Fest at 11:00am on Saturday, April 16th at the Green Dragon in Portland, Oregon. The Firkin Fest will feature unique beers as well as artisan cheeses, chocolates, and meats.

Unique beers from 30 of Oregon’s top breweries will be at the Firkin Fest including Columbia River, Calapooia, Full Sail, Brewer’s Union Local 180, Oakshire, Bridgeport, Hopworks, Laurelwood, Rogue, Bison, Ninkasi, and Coalition, among several others. Each brewery will present a beer of its choice, prepared in the traditional English cask-style. Unlike most draft beers, Firkin beers are unpasteurized, unfiltered, naturally carbonated in the cask and served at cellar temperature of approximately 55 degrees.

The event will be held in two, three hour sessions, with the first running from 11:00am-2:00pm and the second from 3:00pm-6:00pm. Tickets are $30 and include admission, eight 6 oz. pours and two food tickets. All proceeds will benefit the Buckman Elementary School and is sponsored by Food Services of America.

The Green Dragon has been named by DRAFT Magazine as one of the “Top 100 Beer Bars in America” and is listed by Imbibe Magazine as “100 Best Places to Drink Beer in America.”

Tickets may be purchased in advance at or in person/by phone at the Green Dragon.
