The Trappist beers of Belgium are amongst the most highly regarded and sought-after brews in the world. These wonderfully rich beers from the likes of Rochefort, Westmalle, Achel, Chimay and Orval have inspired a truly devoted following around the world. Come join world-renowned importer and beer connoisseur, Dan Shelton, for a guided tasting tour of select examples from all of the Belgian monastic breweries. We will also delve into the rarely explored topic of monastic wines and liqueurs, with intriguing samples from Monasterio de la Olivia (Spain), Kloster Abtei Mariawald (Germany) and the Heiligenkreuz Monastery (Austria). .
An illuminating evening with revelations for even the most well seasoned veterans of Trappist beer drinking is in store. We will enjoy several world classic beers, fascinating wines and liqueurs, as well as frank insights on the history and current realities of brewing behind the abbey walls. An accompanying cheese and snack plate from Chef Jim Piano, a Belgian mussels cooking demonstration by local actor and Chef Adam Gertler, as well as additional (potable) surprises courtesy of bartender Jon Medlinsky, will round out this very special evening.
