GLOBAL BEER NETWORK BELGIAN HOLIDAY TASTING!

Monday, November 3, 2014

WED. NOV. 12TH from 6 to 9PM  Join us as we host Natasha from Global Beer Network for a Belgian Holiday Ale Tasting.  We’re opening some presents early this year including some very special kegs and fancy glassware to go with it!  Natasha will be sampling from bottles of:  Cognac Barrel-Aged Scotch de Silly and Piraat Triple Hop and we’ll have these amazing offerings on draft:

Gulden Draak Brewmaster’s Reserve
This Exclusive Gulden Draak combines the technology and the craftsmanship of the traditional brewing process. By letting the beer mature on Whiskey Barrels it gives it a distinguish and gentle finish that you have never tasted before.  10.5% ABV

Kasteel Winter Ale
Kasteel Winter is a unique departure from the standard Christmas ales known for their potpourri of cinnamon and clove. In fact, it stands alone as one of the most decadent and elegant Quadruples of Belgium in its own right. This 11% ABV beer pours a Chestnut brown with an off-white head. The nose is rich, with a warming scent of Coffee, Toffee, and Dried Fruits. The mouthfeel is rich and sweet like that of melted candy. The key ingredients to this delicacy is Belgian Chocolate and Coffee…noteworthy phrases in any brewers handbook. All of these elements come together to provide an after taste reminiscent of a tootsie roll.

And to cleanse your palate:

Bavik Pilsner
Bavik Premium Pilsner, is considered one of the best Belgian Pilsners, and is certainly one that survived the onslaught by Interbrew-Labatt, which tried, and still tries to take over as many Belgian breweries as possible, to shut them down and to stop brewing their beers.

Bavik Premium Pilsner has been brewed since the creation of the brewery in 1894. Indeed, the emergence of the Pilsner, only a few decades earlier in Bavaria and Czechia, was one of the main reasons Mr. De Brabandere started his brewery. Read about the history of the brewery on the brewery-page. The Bavik Premium Pilsner has a very strong market in the Southern part of West Flanders and in theWestern part of Northern France. This is in fact the ‘local’ market for the brewery, and this market is still growing at a healthy pace.  5% ABV
