The 2nd Annual Vanberg & DeWulf Coast to Coast Toast! Almost 30 Amazing VBDW Imported Drafts from Belgium, France, Italy & Iceland!
On November 15, 2012, ChurchKey will once again be among the finest Belgophile bars, restaurants, and stores across the nation to raise a glass in celebrating Vanberg & DeWulf’s birthday (back in 1982) and the great state of craft and specialty beer culture in the U.S. of A. On this day, we are proudly joining hands with the most progressive, idiosyncratic, and wonderful retailers and publicans across the states and beyond. All to honor one of the first, and still best, importers of outstanding craft beers, Vanberg & DeWulf!
Last year, the First Annual Coast-to-Coast Toast became the single largest one-day celebration of Belgian beer culture in the United States in this millennium (good thing the millenium is young). Along with the countless other supporters and VBDW themselves, we are committed to making this year’s party even bigger, and would love for you to join us.
We’re ready to party—are you?
For this celebration, Churchkey will feature drafts of almost 30 different brews from Belgium and France...and for this year’s gala, we have even gotten our mitts on some of VBDW’s imports arriving from Italy AND Iceland! This promises to be an insane event that you cannot miss...
The Belgians are fully stocked of course...look for 12 different Brasserie Dupont beers (including rarities like Posca Rustica, Monk’s Stout and La Biere de Beloil, as well as a fresh, 2012 batch of their holiday ale, Avec les Bon Voeux), 5 brews from Brasserie Dubuisson (including the 2012 vintage of Scaldis Noel), 3 brews from the brand-new and exciting Dilewyns family brewery (do not miss the DEBUT of their holiday ale in the USA...Vicaris Winter!), and even Vanberg & Dewulf’s very own Strong Blonde Ale, Hop Ruiter, lovingly brewed at the Scheldebrouwerij...
France is coming as well with 5 Castelain specialties (including the hugely rare Diversey & Lill(e) and Jade)...the Italian brewer Amiata has kegged up some Contessa for the occasion as well, and perhaps the most intriguing will be the selection from Olvisholt in ICELAND! Yes, we will be tapping a keg of Lava, their hugely impressive Smoked Imperial Stout!
There is no admission for this event and all VBDW drafts will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. taster pours...
