Come join us at Legacy Liquor Store Thursday, July 21 and help celebrate Belgian National Day that commemorates an event on July 21, 1831 in which Leopold of Saxe-Cobourg swore allegiance to the new Belgian constitution, thus becoming the nation's first monarch. The king's vow marked the start of the independent state of Belgium under a constitutional monarchy and parliament and we're going to help celebrate by sampling some of Belgians finest commodity.....their amazing beers. Lot of give-aways, tastes and fun. Come join us.
Timmermans Brewery, the oldest Lambic brewery in Belgium and winner of the Worlds Best Sour Beer medal, has released it's exceptional Flanders Bruin, Bourgogne des Flandres, in 20L OW kegs (SKU 48520). We were able to secure a very limited amount and are expecting it in our warehouse very soon.
Bourgogne des Flandres is the real taste of Bruges. The mixed fermentation is what makes this beer so special. A top-fermented brown ale is subtly blended with the best spontaneously fermented lambic, which is then matured in oak barrels for many months. It is this process that gives the red-brown beer a rich, creamy finish.
Also available at private beers stores in 330ml bottles (SKU 468447).
