Food prices range between 1 and 4 tokens. 5Oz beer or cider samples can typically be had for 1 token, although some ultra premium, imported, or higher-alcohol products will cost 2 tokens.
HOW MANY CASKS OF EACH BEER WILL YOU HAVE?
There will be only one cask of each selection. Select offerings will be limited to a set number of pours each session. If you are worried about missing out on a particular cask, we recommend purchasing tickets for session 1 or 2 and early access tickets.
WHY DO BEERS RUN OUT?
Many of the offerings at Cask Days are one-off/specialty brews made specifically for our festival and in most cases only one 40L cask firkin is available to us. Given the nature of cask-conditioned ale and the 24 hour venting process required to properly tap and serve a new beer, we cannot have back ups available. Luckily, there are more than 400 beers to sample. If you miss a beer this year, you will have to remember to try it early the next year!
