Fourth Annual Battle of the Belgians
It's the return of our favorite Belgian beer event, with brewers and distributors from around the globe and a few home brewers thrown in for good measure. This annual event features the best of Belgium (from 12% Imports, Vanberg & Dewulf, Shelton Brothers, B. United, Duvel) alongside American-made Belgian-style beers. From 1-4 p.m., there will be unlimited samples of 20+ bottled beers from Belgium against Americans on tap.
*20+ beers to sample and vote on: you choose the winner! Americans and Belgians.
*Beers from Merchant du Vin, Duval/Ommegang, and Vanberg & DeWulf will compete with American-brewed draught and bottle offerings.
*FOOD! We'll have brunch-style offerings including our favorite Belgian beer pairing: bacon! Plus, our award-winning biscuits, chocolate, small bites/tapas.
*Special guest: Brewer Rich Castagna of Bridge & Tunnel, one of our favorite local breweries, will be premiering some of his beers.
*1-4 p.m. walk-around tasting features small batch, one-off, and classic Belgian-style beers.
