We will participate in this year’s Zwanze Day on Saturday, Sept. 28!
This will not be a ticket special event, but a normal retail day featuring the special Zwanze beer on tap along with a selection of Cantillon bottles available for onsite enjoyment.
This year’s Zwanze Day will take place on Saturday September 28th. 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.
