13: Friday the Firkenteenth, Philadelphia, PA
Friday the Firkenteenth, held at the Grey Lodge in Philadelphia, is a Friday the 13th tradition that dates back to 1998. There will be afternoon and evening tasting sessions, each with more than 25 firkins of cask-conditioned beer. This is the only known beer event in the world whose frequency and timing are entirely at the mercy of the calendar.
