Boundary Bay Brewery will be celebrating Oktoberfest today, and to prove I am not making this up, here is the official poster:
Now if you have more than just glanced over the poster, your eye will have no doubt been caught by an unfamiliar word: Firkin. You gotta admit that it’s fun to say (pronounce it ‘fur-kin‘) and perhaps even makes you giggle a little (‘Firkin? I hardly know him!‘). But what the heck is it?
Wonder no longer friends! Steve, Boundary Bay’s generously bearded brewer, is here to answer the question that has weighed so heavily on your minds since you started reading this blog entry tens of seconds ago. Via the magic of the internet, Boundary Bay Brewery presents Steve in, ‘What is a Firkin?‘
Nice Poster! :)
