Feestag Day-= Belgians party even more than usual

Tomorrow Belgium celebrates "Feestag" Belgian Independence Day.
It's marks the oath of King Leopold of Saxe-Coburg-Saalfeld as first king of the Belgians on 21 July 1831.
This first appeared on my party radar last year- and I learned that Belgium was once under Dutch rule.

Tomorrow Ommegang/Duvel Moortgat's Megan Maguire will lead a party train around the city to the following bars:

Grace Tavern-(Start 5 pm)
Devil’s Den
The Abbaye
Belgian Café

It's likely the gang will end up at Monks.

Featured beers include:
Ommegang Zuur,
Belgian Pale Ale,
La Chouffe, 
Houblon Chouffe.  

There will be some nice give aways…just look at that festive glass.

Bridgids will be serving up Belgian beers at a special price all day
Mcgillins will be featuring specials Palm  Belgian Amber and Mussels
CITY TAP HOUSE will be  featuring special pricing on Belgian and Belgian-style ales, rare and unusual beer offerings and a chance to win a pair of tickets to Ommegang’s Belgium Comes to Cooperstown event.  From the "Beer Advisory" 
"All day, guests can enjoy $3 Ommegang Hennepin Belgian-style wheat beer and $6 Duvel Green Belgian ale draughts.  At 6 p.m., the bar will tap kegs of Ommegang Belgian Pale Ale (BPA), a finely made, aromatic Belgian ale and Ommegang Zuur, a collaborative brew with Brouwerij Liefmans of Belgium that is a blend of two aged Liefmans ales, a touch more malt-y and less acidic than a Flemish red.  For $12, guests can enjoy a flight of all four beers.  Any purchase of Ommegang or Duvel throughout the day enters the guest to win a pair of tickets to Ommegang’s Belgium Comes to Cooperstown event; the drawing will be held at 9 p.m. "
