In time to close out October, Bazi Bierbrasserie will host its annual Kwaktoberfest on Friday, October 27th from 5:00-11:00pm. The evening’s highlighted beers includes a tasting tray with Bosteels Brewery three worldwide known beers: Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet and DeuS.
The tasting event will consist of 5 oz pour of each beer for $15 that includes a souvenir Kwak glass. This is your opportunity to try the infamous DeuS (Is it champagne or is it beer?), normally available only in 750 ml Dom Perignon style bottles.
One lucky winner will also be chosen to take home a Quattro that is a 4-Kwak tasting tray. The drawing and winner announcement will take place around 8:00pm.
Kwaktoberfest Beer Descriptions: Deus undergoes a lengthy, costly maturation in the Champagne caves of France. The elegant and labor-intensive “methode Champenoise” produces the best sparkling beverages in the world. DeuS has characteristics of both sparkling wine (fine, velvety carbonation) and specialty beer (rich maltiness) but also exhibits a fragrant, herbal and spicy character quite unique and special. Flavors of anise, mint, malt, lavender, and a barely perceptible hoppiness make DeuS a very sophisticated treat. Only available in 750 ml bottles. Kwak is rich amber in color with a slightly sweet, generously malty character. Hops are subdued, but present a well-considered balance with the juicy ripeness of grain and a fruity, meringue softness. Tripel Karmeliet is brewed with oats, barley and wheat. It has soft, full, rich grain character with hints of banana, vanilla, and a slight, pleasing bubble-gum aroma. Restrained hop bitterness offers perfect balance and a gentle counterpart to its substantial maltiness. World’s Best Ale 2008.
