No joke: Belg-a-Rama #5 at the Blue Nile is ON now!
What else do you really need to know? Oh yeah, the beers:
-De Ranke Noir de Dottingies, strong dark ale
-Van den Bossche Buffalo Belgian Bitter (very new!)
-The great Tripel Karmeliet from Bosteels, one of Al’s all-time favorites
-Abbaye des Rocs Grand Cru
-Two collaborative brews, Deux Brasseurs Ale, brewed by De Proef in Belgium, with Jason Perkins of Maine Allagash Brewery, and
-Ommegang’s strong Belgian, using yeast from Brasserie La Chouffee. (Al notes that this is the first exception to their “brewed in Belgium only” rule, but it is with good cause. Only a handful made it in the state, and it’s from a favorite Belgian-style American brewery, so he thought you’d excuse the exception. We do.)
This one will run Friday, April 1, through Sunday, April 9. If any of these runs out, the replacements will be two great sours from Brouwerij Bockor, Bellegems Bruin, or Cuvee des Jacobins Rouge. That’s right.
