|Cantillon Zwanze Day @ Monk's Cafe||Saturday, September 20, 2014 Noon CASH BAR|
Here we go again...it's time for our Annual Cantillon Zwanze Day. Every vintage of Zwanze has been an experiment for Jean-Pierre and now Jan Van Roy to be creative. One year it was a lambic made with rhubarb, another with elder flowers (which became the annually produced Mamouche) and now this year's version... OK, you'll have to wait a second before I provide Jean's description. We'll also have three more Cantillons on draft and a few bottles, too. We will focus on only Cantillon lambics until we run out. I'll let you know our draft lineup once the kegs arrive in my cellar. Due to the clamor for this über rare beer, we will serve smaller portions so more of our guests have the opportunity to taste. We expect to be crowded because we don't often have 4 kegs of Cantillon pouring. So this will be a CASH ONLY event. No credit cards, no debit cards, no tabs...just cash as you order your beers please.
I DECIDED TO PUT 5 KEGS OF CANTILLON LAMBIC ON TAP TODAY...
Cantillon Zwanze 2014
Cantillon Cuvee Saint-Gilloise
Cantillon Iris Grand Cru
Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus
PLUS...we will have a few Cantillon bottles available for take-away. I want to emphasize the words "a few". Only one per guest and remember, the number of bottles available for take-away are extremely limited. Get here early if you want a bottle.
We also have a very limited number of Cantillon Zwanze Day tShirts. They are unisex American Apparel this year.
Sorry...they did not offer Cantillon glassware this year.
Remember, this is a CASH ONLY event.
Thanks for your patience. Here is Jean's description of Cantillon Zwanze 2014...
Dear Zwanze enthusiasts,
|Ancient Ales Dinner with Dr. Patrick McGovern||Tuesday, September 23, 2014 7PM $70|
We scored a coup...Dr. Patrick McGovern, University of Pennsylvania, is Sam's partner in crime with the Ancient Ales lineup of beers and that aspect of beer history. Dr. Pat, as we refer to him, enlisted Sam to produce Midas Touch many years ago. Dr. Pat will delve into the how he uses his spectrometer to assay the properties of a pottery shard or other used-for-liquid vessels.
It looks like we will have the entire lineup of Dogfish Head Ancient Ales for this event:
This will be a great 5 course beer dinner, so call today for tickets. They will sell out quickly.
|Ancient Brewer Dinner - Hummel turned 60!||Tuesday, October 14, 2014 7PM TBD|
George Hummel of Home Sweet Homebrew is considered by most, to be the man who started the craft beer movement in Philadelphia. George sold homebrew kits to dozens of our area's top brewers and helped them through the first few attempts and still advised when they began brewing on a commercial level.
