One of Belgium’s more recognized Trappist breweries, St. Bernardus, will be part of special event at Bazi Bierbrasserie on Thursday, December 29 from 6:00 to 10:00pm. Bazi will be offering a special St. Bernardus Abt 12 Magnum Edition Vertical Flight, featuring vintages from 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015.
St. Bernardus Abt 12 is an Abbey Ale brewed in the classic Quadrupel style of Belgium’s best Abbey Ales. The beer is dark with a full, ivory-colored head and has a fruity aroma, full of complex flavors and excels because of its long bittersweet finish with a hoppy bite and sits at 10% ABV.
Worldwide seen as one of the best beers in the world. It’s a very balanced beer, with a full-bodied taste and a perfect equilibrium between malty, bitter and sweet. St. Bernardus Abt 12 is one of the original recipes from the days of license brewing for the Trappist monks of Westvleteren.
The tasting will include 4 oz pours of each St. Bernardus Abt 12 year plus a welcome pour of St. Bernardus Christmas. Due to the limited magnum edition bottles, pre-purchase is recommended via Eventbrite at $15.00. Participants may choose to arrive any time between 6:00 and 10:00pm.
