On Wednesday Feb 6th we’re releasing our Three Caves Tripel Firkin served fresh from our Beer Engine! The beer will be available in the Speakeasy beginning at 4pm.
 
Three Caves Tripel – 9%ABV conditioned on Japanese Bitter Oranges (Trifoliate orange or Flying Dragon Bitter Oranges)
 
Beer from a Firkin is not filtered and naturally carbonated. It is placed into the cask while the yeast is still alive so the beer is able to continue to ferment. Fermentation produces CO2 gas which provides some carbonation. Our Firkins will be served using a restored beer engine aka hand pump (think of the old water well pumps). This is a system that pulls the beer out of the cask.
