Zwanze Day 12/1

Saturday, December 1, 2012

Saturday, December 1, 2012, marks the highly anticipated release of this year’s Cantillon Zwanze. This year’s Zwanze is a recreation of the 2008 Rhubarb Lambic.  Arguably the most anticipated release in the World of beer, Zwanze is ONLY available on tap at the following locations hand selected by Cantillon’s Jean van Roy throughout the World and ONLY for this one day!

Zwanze will be simul-tapped WORLDWIDE at 3PM EST and we’ll be linked to the other locations via Google hangout. In addition to our regular Bottle List we will also have several rare Cantillon titles available by the bottle for purchase.

We will be opening the doors at 11AM but, again we would like to reiterate that Zwanze will NOT be tapped until 3PM EST. There are no tickets for this event. As always, this event is first come first served. Please keep in mind we only have 80 seats at the Armsby Abbey and will be vigilantly monitoring the entrances to maintain order between our regular dining patrons & those here for the 3PM tapping. Tables will be reserved for our regular dining customers until 1:30/2PM to avoid any sort of squatting for Zwanze 3PM tapping.
