The phrase "cask-conditioned" speaks to the kind of "real ale" championed by locals like Iron Bird Brewing Co.: Beer that is unfiltered, unpasteurized, dry-hopped and receives no carbon dioxide or nitrogen. Some people think it's flat and warm, some people think it's the only real beer there is.

Either way, all this can be done in a cask called a firkin, and all the firkins at Bristol Brewing Company's 11th annual Firkin Rendezvous — held in the brewery at Ivywild School on Saturday, Feb. 21 — can be tasted for $35.

“Firkin Rendezvous is a great event because there’s always a wide range of interesting ales you can’t get anywhere else,” says owner Mike Bristol in a press release. “We also love that it brings so many Colorado breweries together to support the Colorado Brewers Guild.”

Bristol will have two cask ales: a barrel-aged Winter Warlock with vanilla bean, and El Darillo Imperial IPA. Here's who else will be at the party, as provided by the host:
