Everybody knows about Super Bowl Sunday. Well, Christian Moerlein Brewing Co. is creating Super Firkin Saturday.
The Cincinnati brewery will host its first cask festival from 2 to 6 p.m. Feb. 6 -- the day before the Super Bowl -- at the Moerlein Malt House taproom.
The event will showcase a slew of one-time cask creations from Christian Moerlein and breweries throughout Ohio and Kentucky. It also will serve as a fundraiser for Hamilton firefighter Patrick Wolterman, who died while at a house fire last month. A dollar from each pint sold at the taproom during the festival will be donated to the Patrick Wolterman Roger Bacon Scholarship Fund.
