Kwaktoberfest Returns To Bazi Bierbrasserie on October 30th
The annual tradition of celebrating Kwaktoberfest returns to Bazi Bierbrasserie on Sunday, October 30th from 2:00 to 7:00pm. This day honors the 225 years of brewing tradition from the Bosteels Brewery based in Buggenhout, Belgium that recently sold to Anheuser-Busch InBev with three of its most well recognized beers; Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet and DeuS.
During Kwaktoberfest, patrons can order a $15.00 taster tray that will feature 5 oz. pours of Kwak, Tripel Karmeliet and DeuS that includes a souvenir Kwak glass. This is a rare opportunity to try DeuS as it is normally available only in 750 ml Dom Perignon style bottles.
Here are details on each of the three beers.
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, and has soft, full, rich grain character with hints of banana, vanilla, and a slight, pleasing bubble-gum aroma. A restrained hop bitterness offers perfect balance and a gentle counterpart to its substantial maltiness. World’s Best Ale 2008.
One lucky winner will also be chosen to take home a Quattro (4-Kwak tasting tray). Announcement will take place shortly at the conclusion of the event around 7:00pm.
