Wed., Nov. 2nd – Drink with the Monks!
You hear a lot about Trappist beers; they are some of the best beer made in Belgium! Made for centuries by the Monks themselves in ancient Abbeys of Belgium, there are only 7 Trappist breweries left in the world. We will have 5 of them represented and the rep’s from the breweries will be here to talk about the history. We will also have some lesser known styles you might not have known were Trappist – including some oak aged Qaud, Belgian Pale Ale and a Wit. We will also have discounted Trappist Glassware sets for sale at the event (5 glasses for $18 plus tax, quantities are very limited).
