Cantillon Zwanze Day

23 Sept. 2017

Zwanze at the Pub is more than just the one beer!

We celebrate the style of spontaneous brewing as well as exquisite Belgian beers all weekend. Because there is always only ONE keg of Zwanze, we cellar beers all year long for tapping on this day, and we encourage our guests to think past (just) the Zwanze and come and make a weekend of it.

We love Zwanze day! Because there is always only one keg of Zwanze we tap lots of other fabulous sours throughout the weekend. It’s our favorite tap list of the year! Please read about the tapping time & beers lists below. Many of these beers haven’t arrived yet so we can price any of the tickets until we have them in house and know what they will cost us! We will update the list with the prices as soon as they arrive! 

Tapping Schedule & List

How To Get A Pour/Ticket For Zwanze

Polly will begin taking names at about 9AM Saturday morning on the front sidewalk just by the front doors. Names will be taken in roughly order in which you arrive. Once we fill our list for all the Zwanze pours we will stop taking names. So that means if your name is on the list you will get a pour. We do this so that you can relax and enjoy all the other beers we have in house while you wait for the 2pm Zwanze tapping!

If there is still capacity inside the Pub those folks not on the Zwanze list will be able to come in and drink all the other fabulous beers we serving that day. We do not allow folks to leave and return keeping their place “in line” for a Zwanze pour. If you leave the Pub prior to the zwanze pouring you will lose your place on the Zwanze list.


Our kitchen will have a couple of simple breakfast items starting at 8AM and Nathaniel will be serving brunch from his truck starting about 9:30 that morning. He will be staying at least until the mid afternoon with fun dishes he as created to augment our regular kitchen menu.
