August is Virginia Craft Beer Month
Craft Beer Month at Caboose Brewing Company
August is Virginia Craft Beer Month! As if you needed another reason to enjoy craft beer. Not a craft beer fan? Now is the time to convert. We are brewing our 300th brew, and it's a brand new beer! Plus, brewing two other brand new beers, (more details coming soon!) We will have another Fog canning run on August 15th, that we are SO excited for. Plus new merchandise, fun Firkin Fridays, a Sustainability in Brewing event with Slow Food DC, and raffling off tickets to our fall beer dinners and Commons' first anniversary in September. A few other events to keep in mind...
Take Our Craft Beer Home With You
Own a growler? Fill it with any of our Caboose beers! If you don’t have a growler, we have some fun ones available for purchase at either Caboose location. We also have our Fog IPA and Vienna, VA Lager available in cans. Both 6 packs are available at either Caboose location as well. (Note: we are starting to can 16 oz of Fog on August 15th!) Having a party? Or just a wild Monday night? You can buy sixtels or half barrels of any of our beers. Note: must be picked up at Vienna, and need 72 hours notice.
What’s a Firkin and Why is it on Fridays?
At Caboose Brewing Company, we love our craft beer. We are proud of our classics and fan favorites, but we also love experimentation. All of our brewers are scientists, after all. Based off of this idea, we gave birth to… Firkin Friday. And no, we aren’t cussing. A firkin is essentially a small cask. To be exact, it is “a small wooden vessel or cask,” thank you Ryan Gaspard. There is no carbonation, so beer in a firkin is chilled but not cold. Every Friday we fill a firkin with a twist on one of our classic beers. If we get a standing ovation, maybe you’ll see that version full time on tap! Or maybe the firkin isn’t your thing, and we can it all together. Either way, fun times each Friday!
Celebrate Craft Beer Month each Friday with us. Firkins to be announced each week! So far…
