A couple new beer events are on the horizon at Bazi Bierbrasserie. The first event is Cuvee Van De Keizer Day on February 24 and Gueuze Crueuze on February 25. Here are more details on each of the events from the press release.
Cuvee Van De Keizer Day
Wednesday, February 24 – 5:00 to 9:00pm
Since 1999 Brouwerij Het Anker has been brewing Gouden Carolus Cuvee van de Keizer, the Grand Cru of the Emperor, every February 24th, to celebrate the birthday of Emperor Charles V. Charles was the only Holy Roman Emperor to rule Europe from Belgium, and he had his court in the small Belgian town of Mechelen, the home of Het Anker. In 1999 Charles Leclef, the 5th generation owner of Het Anker, decided to brew a special beer to honor the Emperor, creating a stronger version of the beer which Het Anker had brewed for the Emperor’s court centuries ago.
On February 24, 2016 Wetten Importers is hosting the first annual Cuvee van de Keizer Day, to celebrate this very special brew. Having won numerous international awards, including World’s Best Belgian-Style Strong Beer at the 2015 World Beer Awards, if any beer is worthy of having its own day, it is the Grand Cru of the Emperor. To celebrate, Wetten Importers Bazi will be hosting a tasting event of the Cuvee Van De Keizer along with three other beers from the Gouden Carolus line: Classic, Hopsinjoor and Easter.
A special tasting tray of all 4 will be available for $12 – 5 oz pours each.
