Battle of the Belg: Belgian Beer Taste-off at the Blue Nile

Leave it to Al to bring us another special beer drinking session at the Blue Nile! Here’s the 411 straight from the horse’s mouth (no offense, Al, I like horses).

Here’s the quick and dirty facts, folks:

Next weekend, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday, all Belgian and Belgian-style taps at the Blue Nile, with tasting sets to include samples from our bottles as well. 2 representatives of 6 styles, one Belgian and one American.
Here’s what we’ll have:
Belgian hoppy ale/IPA: Poperings Hommel Bier, Gouden Carolus Hopsinjoor (no American contestant in this one.)
Sour Ale: Ommegang Rouge & Two Brothers/Urthel Mouten
Tripel: Flat Earth Bermuda Triangle vs. Val-Dieu
Dubbel: North Coast Brother Thelonious vs. Witkap Dubbel
Saison: Boulevard Tank 7 vs. St. Feullien
Witbier: Avery White Rascal vs. Blance des Bruxelles

Also, looking to add some cask to this, for fun, Surly Cynic, for sure, maybe something else.

More details to come.

And…this is only part one! Part two comes the first weekend in October

And, yes, I know it’s Labor Day Weekend, but I haven’t done a beer fest in 3 months, not counting my birthday, and all the other weekends in Sept are conflicted by something else. If you can’t make it due to LD plans, stop in and see what’s left…part two will be new beers, and some new styles, as well!

    Change to this list: No Witkap Pater Dubbel, but St. Bernardus PAter 8, instead. And Goose Island Pere Jacques in case anything runs out.
