Join us as we host Cantillon’s 2019 Zwanze Day celebration at our Whippoorwill Farm location. 5 Cantillon selections + Zwanze 2019, and some lovely beer selections of our own.
The party is happening on Saturday, September 28th from 12pm-5pm with the iconic Zwanze tapping at 3 pm.
Tickets include glassware, 1 5oz pour of Zwanze, and 5 5oz pours of anything on draught (Cantillon, guest taps, or FF beers). $45. Additional pours (with the exception of Zwanze beer) can be purchased. Once tickets are purchased, a code will go out to all ticketholders for the option to pre-order Zwanze t-shirts.
Some notes from Jean on this year’s beer:
“The beer for this year’s Zwanze was brewed in March 2016 and kegged January 26th, 2018. Contrary to past Zwanze beers, this beer is not the result of a special blend or the addition of a special fruit, but of a wholly unique brew.
On March 1st, 2016, we brewed a smoked Lambic using a blend of classic pilsner malt and smoked malt.
Rather than taking the beer to an extreme, we looked instead to find a balance between the acidic character of Lambic and the woodiness of the smoked malt.
The result is a fine Gueuze with the classic notes of a Cantillon, complemented by an elegant smokiness in the nose and on the palate.”
Additionally, the following beers will be available from Cantillon –
Something pink: Either Kriek or Rosé de Gambrinus
Something vinous: Either St-Lamvinus, St-Lamvinus Grand Cru, or Vigneronne
Singlewyde will be slingin’ Belgian-inspired farm-to-table eats.
Open to the public at 5 pm – and all the beers that remain can be consumed!
