Firkin Fest 2015 is coming to Screenland Crossroads May 1 and 2


Screenland Crossroads and Tapcade celebrate frikins May 1 and 2 with the second Firkin Fest. This year’s festival is moving from the Armour theater to the Crossroads theater/arcade/restaurant/craft-beer emporium (1701 McGee). Here’s what we know:

Firkin Fest will feature more than 10 casks of beer from 4 Hands, Tallgrass, Left Hand, Rock & Run, Cinder Block, Torn Label, Summit, Empyrean, New Belgium, Green Flash and more. Each will be altered in some way. For instance, 4 Hands is sending a firkin of Contact High infused with pineapple and mango.

Tappings start Friday, May 1, at 6:30 p.m. The fest resumes Saturday.

Instead of films, this year’s Firkin Fest will feature a couple of video-game tournaments on the big screen. Friday, from 7 to 9 p.m., it’ll be Street Fighter 2. Saturday, it’ll be Super Smash Bros Melee from 7 to 9 p.m. 

Oh, and the fest is free to attend.
