Durham's Rockfish Seafood Grill is hosting a "Cask Ales for Tails" event from 6:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday (10/24) to benefit Second Chance Adoption.
Six Triangle breweries are bringing cask conditioned beers for sampling. A $10 cash donation at the door gets you in to taste the beer and enjoy light appetizers. Plus, bring extra cash to buy raffle tickets for prizes. All money collected will be donated to the charity.
The breweries include Haw River Farmhouse Ales of Saxapahaw, Deep River Brewing Co. of Clayton, Steel String Craft Brewery and Four Saints Brewing Co. in Asheboro. Plus, this event will be the Triangle debut of two breweries: Raleigh Brewing Co. and Crank Arm Brewing.
Here's a LINK to the event's Facebook page.
While I have beer drinkers' attention, you may want to mark this event on your calendar:
Hillsborough's Wooden Nickel Pub is hosting a cask beer fest from noon to 11 p.m. Nov. 3. Forty dollars gets you a souvenir glass and a taste of cask-conditioned brews from Fullsteam, Big Boss Brewing Co., Aviator Brewing Co., Haw River Farmhouse Ales, Mother Earth Brewing and several other breweries.
For more information, check out the Wooden Nickel's Facebook page. Tickets will be sold at the door.
(If you hadn't heard of some of these breweries, check out my post in June about the breweries on the horizon in the Triangle. I can't believe we have 2 more since that time.)
