On the first Friday of each month a small keg (firkin) of special ale is carried throughout the pub in a procession lead by a piper from The Regina Police Services Pipes & Drums. A volunteer then wields the enormous handmade wooden maul affectionately named, The Mighty Firkin Wakker, and attempts to tap the keg of creative brew in one mighty blow.
