Deus, Kwak and Tripel Karmeliet to be poured at the P.o.p.e with Jack Van Antwerpen Tuesday night-=-=-

from desk of Cameron Saunders-=

The POPE is hosting a Bosteels Brewery night that will feature Triple Karmeliet and Kwak on draft and DeuS will be in bottles. There's going to be dessert specials that will pair up with the beers.

Jack Van Antwerpen, President of Exports for Bosteels, will be making his way across the pond for his first visit to Philadelphia. Come and meet this wild man. He will also be able to answer any questions you might have about their beers. 7 till 11 Cheers ! CS

Deus is actually first brewed and first fermented at the brewery then taken to Champagne France where it undergoes the same process as the finest bubbly. We can sub it out for Champers when the Phils take the series.

Kwak was actually the first Belgian beer to be poured this side of the pond in 1995.

and Tripel Karmeliet which is poured in one of the most beautiful vessels out there. The glass is tall, boulbus and etched with a whimsical lacing... I bought two in Elkton, Md at State Line liquors years ago. I have no idea where they are. The beer is made with 3 different grains-wheat, oat, AND barley... probably one of my favorite examples of the style.

Joe Six Pack wrote about it last week.

I have a sampling at Smiths that night around happy hour...then hope to make it down.
