Steamworks Brewing Co. will continue its Firkin Fridays series with a coconut, pineapple and rum Wit, dubbed the “Spring Break ‘89” to be tapped on Friday.
The firkin will be tapped at 3 p.m. at the brewpub.
TSpring Break ‘89 is based in Steamworks’ One Wit Wünder, an unfiltered Belgian white ale (Witbier), spiced with coriander and orange peel, with an ABV of 5.0.
A firkin is an old English unit of volume, typically a wooden cask equal to approximately one-quarter of a regular barrel, or nine/ten gallons. The word “firkin” is derived from the Middle Dutch word “vierdekijn,” which means “fourth” as in one-fourth the size. Firkin beer is unpasteurized and unfiltered, contains no preservatives and is served at cellar temperature – cool but not cold.
Steamworks initiated its Firkin Fridays to introduce unusual, specialty craft beers to patrons, and augment its regular offerings. Steamworks is located at 801 E. Second. Ave. in Durango. For more information, visit www.steamworksbrewing.com or call 259-9200.
