Firkinteenth Details
updated as of 12 November 2009

  • tapping begins at noon.
  • Our kitchen will open at 11am serving our full menu.
  • We expect 23, maybe 24 firkins cause ya never know.
  • With 24 (or more) firkins, we should have cask ale going until at least 9pm. Time permitting Scoats will be updating the news page and tweeting throughout the day with cask status.
  • 7 firkins will be pouring at any time (except when we get down to less than 7), tapping a new one as one kicks. The order of the casks will be random, but hey there should be no stinkers in the line-up.

Current Cask List (likely to change, it always does):

  • Arcadia London Porter, a robust London style porter with a deep chocolate/ruby color and the subtle accent of hardwood smoked malt. This distinctive beer is brewed using no less than seven different varieties of premium European malted barley, resulting in a complex and full bodied beer characterized by hints of chocolate, coffee, caramel and beechwood smoke. The big malty finish to this beer is balanced by a solid hop bitterness and the refined English aroma and flavor of premium Goldings finishing hops. 7.2% ABV
  • Clipper City Heavy Seas Loose Cannon, a triple hopped IPA containing over 3 pounds of hops per barrel. Not for the faint of palate, it has an intensely floral, spicy, and citrusy hop aroma and flavor. 7.25% ABV.
  • Coronado Islander IPA, Brewed within a mile of the pacific ocean this west coast IPA sweeps the senses with its intense hop bitterness, complex flavors and aromas. The Islander IPA pours a nice copper color with a medium body and maltiness. 7% ABV
  • Cricket Hill Col. Blide's Bitter, 5.5% ABV
  • Dock Street Rye IPA, an aggressively hopped American Pale Ale brewed with Simcoe and Amarillo hops. The use of 20% rye gives thisale a unique dry and spicy character. 6.8% ABV
  • Dogfish Head 75 Minute IPA, a blend of 60 and 90 Minute IPAs with a special whole leaf cascade dry-hopping session. Post-hopping the beer gest transferred into firkins and dosed with fresh yeast and maple syrup. 7.5% ABV
  • Duck Rabbit double-dry-hopped Brown, brewed with loads of hops from start to finish (it’s hoppy and beautifully bitter). Amarillo hops in the boil provide a spicy citrusy bitterness. Saaz dry hops in the fermentor provide a refined flowery aroma. These hops are supported by a grain bill of seven varieties of malt. 5.6% ABV.
  • Flying Fish Grand Cru, strong golden ale showcases a variety of the ingredients and brewing methods that help differentiate Flying Fish beers. The Grand Cru is fermented at a higher temperature than our other beers adding an undercurrent of fruitiness (although there is no fruit in the beer). Very lightly filtered, the Grand Cru exhibits complex mouthfeel, strong malt flavors, a spicy hop presence and a soothing alcohol warmth, followed by a clean, dry finish. 6.8% ABV.
  • Iron Hill (West Chester East) Totally Inappropriate. An Octoberfest primed with fermenting Quadruppel and dry hopped with American hops. 6% abv.
  • Iron Hill (West Chester West) Hopzilla IPA. A classic rendition of the English IPA. This beer begins with a pleasant malty sweetness and modest fruitiness. These flavors give way to the bitterness and aroma of the English hops used in the boil and a generous dose of East Kent Goldings used for dry-hopping. 5.8% ABV
  • Lancaster Celtic Rose, traditional Irish Amber Ale. This beer combines the richness of German and Austrian malts with the delicate and spicy British hops. 5% ABV.
  • Manayunk Old Ebenezer Barley Wine, traditional English barley wine made with a nearly a ton of malt, English Phoenix and Kent Golding hops, and a British sense of celebration. 9% ABV.
  • Nodding Head Anomaly, an unusual beer without any unusual ingredients… black in color with red highlights, rather hoppy, with a fairly light body. Abandon your preconceived notions and enjoy the interplay between the hop flavor and the roasted malt character. 5.25% ABV.
  • Philadelphia Joe, brewed with locally-roasted, fair trade coffee, dark Munich and chocolate malts which combine to create a well-balanced, flavorful porter with a fresh roasted coffee aroma. Good from the first drop. 5% ABV.
  • Sixpoint Otis, an accentuation of the distinguishing characteristics of stout beer: roasted flavor, full body, and hop bitterness. 6% ABV.
  • Sixpoint Vienna Pale.
  • Sly Fox Chester County Bitter, dry -hopping in the cask produces an enticing hop aroma in this quaffable session ale. 4.5% ABV.
  • Sly Fox Rte 113 IPA, big, strong IPA for all the hopheads out there, brewed with British Pale and Caramel malts, and hopped with Centennial, Cascade, German Tradition, UK East Kent Goldings & Styrian Goldings. 6.6% ABV.
  • Stoudts Winter Ale, a new version from Stoudts. 6.2% ABV.
  • Troegs Hopback Amber dry hopped with Williamette, packed full of whole flower hops, each batch circulates through the hopback vessel, creating a fresh hoppy aroma, spicy taste and rich caramel notes. 5.6% ABV.

  • Weyerbacher Double Simcoe, a double IPA using exclusively Simcoe hops! 9% ABV.
