Looking for a tasty, refreshing way to spend your weekend? How about Sweetwater Brewery’s Brew Your Cask Off Cask Ale Festival?
Once again, Sweetwater has asked 80+ special guest brewers, including local retailers, home brewers, and charities, to create their own one-of-a-kind cask (under the tutelage and watchful eyes of Sweetwater’s brewers) for festival attendees to sample and judge, culminating in awarding their fest favorites and the result is the Brew Your Cask Off festival. From 6 PM to 10 PM tomorrow, Saturday, March 5, 2011, you can sample unlimited cask ale samples, as well as Sweetwater’s own lineup, and the brewery will be also open for tours.
Tickets are $35 in advance/online or $40 at the door. Sample the guest brewers’ creations and vote in the Peoples’ Choice voting, and you can also enjoy Sweetwater’s brews, sample snacks for sale from local food vendors, check out the music stage, and take a guided tour of the Sweetwater Brewery. Not a bad deal. You can purchase your tickets online on the Brew Your Cask Off website (attendees must be 21+ years old).
The winners get an enviable prize: the judges’ top four casks as well as the people’s choice winner will have their casks recreated and served at the 2011 SweetWater 420 Fest in Candler Park April 15th-17th. So don’t worry – if you can’t make it tomorrow, you can sample the best of the best in April!
