Cask Head Festival


Amazing way to spend Super Bowl weekend = huge-oid casker festival at The Brazen Head ( in Brooklyn.

Expect around 25 to 30 casks in total (12 tapped at a time) at the three-day event, which is dubbed the “20th ‘Cask Head’ Cask Ale Festival.”

Mid-entry note: I want my name to be Cask Head. If it were, my head would be a cask. And then I’d never have to travel to Brooklyn in the cold weather to drink. Convenience, my friends. All about convenience.

Hours for the fun are Noon – 2:00AM. No entrance fee.
