Charity Cask for a Cause – Firkin Friday at Cooper’s Seafood in Scranton

May 31, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join us the last Friday of May for Cooper’s Charity Cask Night as we tap a firkin, raise a glass, and some much needed money, (100% of the sales) for the Anthracite Heritage Museum and Iron Furnaces!

Come join us for a fun Happy Hour & help out The Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum & Scranton Iron Furnaces. The firkin will be tapped promptly at 5 pm. We’ll have raffle items & a 50/50 so grab some family and friends & meet us @ Cooper’s to have some beers all while supporting The Pennsylvania Anthracite Heritage Museum & Scranton Iron Furnaces!!!

WHAT is a firkin ale?

A firkin is a small keg, holds about 10 gallons or so of cask-conditioned, 50°F beer. We source our firkins from breweries in our backyard to breweries across the country! The cask is always a special, one-of-a-kind beer connoisseur’s treat. It is available only until it runs dry, which could be just hours (or less) after it’s tapped.

WHY a firkin ale?

If you love beer then this is your chance to experience drinking a real ale! Open up your senses to the hop and malt flavors released by drinking a beer from a hand-drawn firkin served at a respectable temperature.

At 5:00 p.m. the last Friday of every month a tap is hand-driven into the firkin with a mallet.  A small hole is opened at the top and the beer flows!!! Try this tasty treat — real ale as it was meant to be!
