ZWANZE DAY 2020 // 26 SEPTEMBER 2020

This year’s Zwanze day will happen Saturday 26th of September. Featured is Cantillon Brettrave, lambic with red beets. Because of extremely limited supply and to avoid crowds, to drink this beer you will need a ticket which will be released on our social media in the following days. All day will be a huge lambic celebration with 10 Cantillon on tap, a pretty crazy bottle list with new drink-in specials, bottle deals and special fitting toasties. More info shortly on our socials!
We open a bit earlier (10AM) to try to avoid crowds.

BELGIAN BEER MONTH // SEPTEMBER 2020

This September we are paying homage to one of the OG beer brewing nations in the world: Belgium. We feel like all too often these brews don’t get the attention they deserve so let’s give them a month in the spotlight.

Expect anything and everything from traditional saisons to modern classics, Trappist ales and lambics rotating throughout the month.

ORVAL DAY // TRAPPIST SHOWCASE // TRAPPIST CHEESE & TOASTIES // SATURDAY 21 MARCH 2020

Once again Orval day is upon us and who are we to not enjoy this with of course an Orval or 2. While we are at it we thought it would be nice to round it up into an all-out celebration of Trappist ales. Expect trappists on tap, special bottles to drink by the glass and of course Orval and Westmalle cheese.
