“Firk” is short for Firkin, a 10-gallon vessel of real ale featured at the event, a rarity on the West Coast.
In the heart of Anaheim, inside the historic Anaheim Packing District, which just celebrated its 100th anniversary.

Event Details

When: Saturday, June 29, 2019, from 12 to 4
What: Beer and Nacho Festival

New this year

NachoFest! Local Packinghouse chefs are collaborating on an international-style nacho bar, where guests can purchase bites from Heritage Barbecue, The Iron Press, Adya – Fresh Indian Flavors, Urbana Mexican Gastronomy, and others. Honey & Butter’s award-winning macarons will also be available at the event.

You won’t feel Overcrowded

The guest list is capped to keep the festival at a relaxed and exclusive level. Guests often gush about the lack of lines and room to sprawl out in the park with a blanket and some great tunes by Tiki-DJ Ken from the Cocktail Syndicate.

Beer styles offered are a good mix of modern craft beer culture, such as Bottle Logic’s Mint Condition dessert stout inspired by mint-chocolate chip ice cream, or legit British-style real ale casks from Yorkshire Square, Macleod Ale Brewing, and Green Cheek.

All beers arrive cold and are bursting with carbonation.
