Woodland Farm Brewery has been working to educate and promote cask beer since its inception in 2015, the brewery announcement added. Cask ale is the traditional serving method that predates kegging and refrigeration.
Cask ale is naturally carbonated which provides a smoother mouthfeel and more robust flavors, organizers added.
For this event, all of the various breweries will be bringing unique renditions of their beers that will only be available at this festival. Cask ale is often conditioned on additional ingredients including hops, chocolate, coffee, fruits, and other creative offerings, the announcement said, adding that the styles of beer that have been confirmed so far range from IPAs, brown ales, imperial stouts, imperial porters and others.
Attendees are expected to enjoy an afternoon of unique cask offerings from all over the state. Food will be available through Woodland Farm Brewery and music will round out the event, rain or shine. Remsen Social Club will be bringing their own brand of bluegrass, folk, Americana, and tomfoolery, organizers added.
General Admission tickets are $45, VIP tickets are $55, and Designated Driver tickets are $10. General admission tickets allow entrance at 3 p.m. while VIP tickets allow entrance at 2 p.m. for an additional hour of tasting, plus discounts on merchandise and food!
