LAST FIRKINTEENTH UNTIL SEPTEMBER 2019
After this Frikinteenth, it will be 14 long months until we have another. So don't miss it!
NEW TIME SAME AS THE OLD TIME
We heard you, Firkinteenth will kick off at 12 noon again!
Friday the Firkinteenth is our most famous event. Every Friday the 13th since February 1998, we have tapped a bunch of cask ale.
Once again, we will tap a lot of cask ale, but for this one we are switching it up. There will be one session, starting at 12 noon, with about 40 different pins. Pins are exactly half the size of a firkin. Come early, come later, stay for the whole thing, whatever you like, we'll have lots of freshly tapped cask ale.
Many people consider Friday the Firkinteen their favorite Philadelphia beer event. Friday the Firkinteenth won «Best Beer Event» from Philly Beer Scene twice. A (hopefully) interesting bit of trivia, this is probably the only beer event in the world whose frequency and timing are completely at the mercy of the calendar.
Like pretty much every Grey Lodge event, Friday the Firkinteenth is pay as you go. No tickets, no cover charge.

As usual, We will be stocking up on 8oz glasses so you can safely try several of these great beers. Also, as usual, there will be pitchers of water all over.
Events like Groundhog Day and Friday the Firkinteenth are too hectic for us run tabs or accept credit cards. On rare days like those we are cash only.
Kick a Cask, Get a Shirt
If you kick a cask, we'll give you a free, extremely limited-edition T-shirt. We switch up the design and color for each Firkinteenth.
Ringing the Bell
When a cask kicks, we ring a bell, which means an angel gets his wings. At the last Firkinteenth, 22 angels got their wings. You may be thinking «sure an angel gets his wings but what do we get?» Whoever buys the beer that kicks a cask gets a free I Kicked the Cask t-shirt. These are the usual type of t-shirts that have holes for neck and arms but no holes for wings, so angels will just have to be happy with wings. These shirts are custom made for each Firkinteenth and are not for sale. You have to kick a cask to get one.
