The beer list for our July 21 United Tastes of Belgium now holds over 50 Belgian-style and Belgian beers. The latest beer list is here.
This year our United Tastes of Belgium takes place on a very important day in beer history: Belgian Independence Day.
Each year on July 21, Belgians honor the anniversary of the day their nation secured its independence from the Netherlands in 1831.
Learn more about this important day at Belgian Revolution.
And please ponder this: If Belgium had not gained its liberty, would it have become the brewing wonder it is today?
Who knows, instead of beer, Belgium might now be famous for its genever, "coffee shops" and windmills.
Perhaps our brewing pals in Fort Collins, CO would've called their company New Netherlands Brewing, and the term "Dutch treat" would be a beer reference.
And our event this month would showcase, well, wooden footwear. The horror!
At the UToB we'll also serve a nice spread of artisan chocolates and cheeses to accompany the beers. (Sorry, there will be no waffles. Or birch Birkenstocks.)
We hope you’ll celebrate this big beery with us. Bring a few beer-loving friends, will ya?
Advance tickets are available only online for a mere $30. They are $37.50 at the door on the day of the event if it's not sold out.
Speaking of the good fight, here’s the world’s most rocking man and the E Street Band raging through an especially defiant version of the ultimate, we-ain’t-backing-down anthem, “Badlands”
