Basically, this happened.
But what does it all mean?
The firkin has British roots! The definition of the word is actually an old English unit of capacity and ceremonial tappings of these things go down far and wide.
The firkin is famous for housing about 84 pints of real ale that is naturally carbonated instead of that other stuff that’s been industrialized, pasteurized and processed. In other words….GREAT TASTE!
To get the beer a’ flowin’, the firkin is struck with a mallet of sorts and that’s when happiness occurs….BEER FOR ALL!
