Firkin Friday

Every Friday, to celebrate the great tradition of drinking real, cask-conditioned ale, Barley’s taps a firkin.

Technically a firkin is an old English unit of volume equal to about 1/4 of a barrel. At Barley's our firkins are just about 5 gallons. We dispence our firkins the old-fashioned way-by gravity. We tap the firkin with a spile on top to let air in and then open the faucet to fill your pint. Once tapped, this form of ale is extremely perishable so we only allow the firkin to be consumed for only about 40 hours. Luckily, many times the firkin empties in about eight.

Firkin Friday is our way of saluting the past and honoring the way beer has been tapped for hundreds of years. Come in every friday and try what we have on tap.
