Belgian Independence Day
Commemorate when the Belgians said “enough” to the Dutch. Enough with the wooden shoes. Enough tulips. And they celebrated their independence by doing what they do better than anyone – they had a beer festival.
A special tasting tray will be available including the Duchesse de Bourgogne, Val-Dieu Cuvee 800, Kazematen Wiper Times, and St Bernardus Pater 6. The tray will consist of 4 oz pours of each for $12.
To close out the week’s festivities, D&V International will be popping a 6 Liter bottle of St Bernardus Abt 12 around 7 PM and sharing it with all those in attendance.
