Firkin Festival will be held on Saturday, April 2nd at 701 Spring Hill Avenue. Benefiting the American Cancer Society, the festival indulges craft beer lovers that include novices and aficionados alike.

Doors open at 2pm with a tapping ceremony at 2:30pm. Sampling ends at 5:30pm with an awards ceremony at 6pm.
