Cantillon #ZwanzeDay @AlewifeNYC 9/14
Bar opens at 11am and is open to the public – Zwanze Beer tokens will be handed out at 11am and only 1 per person
1st come 1st served basis – except VIP, their guaranteed a Zwanze Beer & Glass and 5 different beers on tap.
Come celebrate our first and world renowned Zwanze Day at Alewife, we’ll have 3 Cantillons on tap, Cantillon bottles plus other spontaneous fermented beers on tap all weekend
This Zwanze is not a Lambic. As you know, everyone can produce an Abbey beer in Belgium and this year Jean (Cantillon brewer/owner) goal was to brew a top fermentation “abbey style” mixed with a double spontaneous inoculation (natural one coming from the wild yeast present in the brewery and from the 10% Lambic they added after the first fermentation).
they know know, they are not the first to add Brett in a abbey beer 😉
In brussels dialect, zwanzer is joking and if we called this beer Abbaye de Cureghem, it’s to laugh about the fake legend build around some belgian abbey beers. Cantillon is located in the Cureghem area but the Cureghem Abbey never existed!
