It is with great pleasure to announce that Benelux and Cask Days will be working together to host "A Night with IPAs" on Saturday, June 9th, 2012 at Brasserie Benelux Brewpub (245 rue Sherbrooke Ouest, Montreal) - 6:00pm. The theme for the event is the India Pale Ale styles from Ontario and Quebec served cask-conditioned. This event will mark the first ever appearance of Ontario casks available in Quebec with the help of Importations Privées Bieropholies. "A Night Of India Pale Ales" will be the after party for Mondial de la Bière. For this special night only, there will be 20 participating breweries and one special collaboration between BENELUX (Montréal) and HOUSE ALES (Toronto).
The event will be split in two halves: first, between 6pm and 8pm all the IPAs will be offered in 5oz pours for a blind tasting, a period where no beers nor brewery names will be published. Then, from 8pm, beers and brewery names will be revealed and tasting will then on be in 12oz glasses. A champion IPA shall be annouced later at night from votes compiled during the blind tasting .
From past experiences, these events fill up quite quickly, and we encourage everyone to come as early as possible to avoid disappointment.
