Bazi to host 3rd Annual Saison Greetings

Bazi Saison Greetings 2015

Today is the first day of daylight savings time and Bazi Bierbrasserie has something special planned. Bazi will be hosting its 3rd Annual Saison Greetings from 4:00 to 9:00pm today. The taps will be taken over by farmhouse ales, both domestic and imported Belgian-inspired saison style beers.

The lineup of beers is quite amazing. This also may be your last chance to get a beer from Hof ten Dormaal in some time as this famed Belgian brewery was damaged by a fire in January of this year. Fortunately its brewing operations just started up once again this past Friday but it will take some time to get its delicious beers here to the States.

Here’s what to expect today to be pouring at Bazi.
