These non-traditional casks are a way for us to have fun and experiment with adjuncts to create unique flavor combinations. Some of our popular seasonal favorites started as a cask before we brewed them full scale (Think Hazelnut Coffee Nessie and Saison Des Moines W/ Cranberries & Spruce Tips). Let us know what your favorites are and maybe they'll get produced again!

***The casks will be set up in the beer garden, please purchase beer tickets at any bar to redeem at the casks. Tickets will be $2 each or 3 for $5. 1 ticket may be redeemed for a 5oz pour, 2 tickets for a 10oz pour and 3 tickets for a 16oz pour.

*Please drink responsibly and have a great time!

Feud Time Trivia on Monday, January 20th
Feud Time Trivia is from 6:30-8:30 PM on Monday, January 20th and is FREE to play!

Feud Time Trivia is different from a normal trivia night... Instead of "fact-based" questions and answers, we surveyed the nation with a series of questions. Teams compete by trying to guess the top answers!

It truly evens the playing field, and anyone can win. So gather a team of up to 8 people and prepare for a fun night!

You may register your team by contacting Mark at mark.david@confluencebrewing.com or simply show up and register the day of the event.
