Special Tapping: Westmalle Dubbel
May 16, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 11:00 pm
Brouwerij der Trappisten van Westmalle has been producing classic Trappist abbey ales for well over a century now. Fiercely dedicated to quality and tradition, they have only ever made three beers: two of them, Tripel and Dubbel, are widely considered to epitomize their respective styles, hence their ability to get away with such a definitive, simplistic name. The third, Extra, is rarely found outside the immediate proximity of the abbey.
Until recently, though Westmalle bottles have been a fairly ubiquitous presence on store shelves, the beer was unavailable on draft outside of a few key Belgian accounts. But that all changed this spring, when importer Merchant du Vin shipped over a handful of kegs to be poured Stateside, and we managed to get our grubby hands on some! So join us this Thursday evening when we tap the first of our Westmalle Dubbel kegs. This classic beer has NEVER been available on draft in the state before, and we have no idea if or when it will be again.
