Jack Van Antwerpen, President of Exports for Bosteels Brewery in Belgium is in town tonight and tomorrow. If you’re any kind of beer person you’ve enjoyed one of their beers and if you haven’t, you owe it to yourself to have one.
- Kwak is as known for its unique glass (originally designed to hang from mail coaches) as for its deep amber tastiness.
- Tripel Karmaliet is a Belgian tripel that is made with three kinds of grain; wheat, oats and barley. It’s a Foobooz favorite of favorites.
- Deus is described as a symbiosis of brewing a beer and creating a sparkling wine.
Tonight the beer and Van Antwerpen are going to be at Tria Rittenhouse and the Fermentation School. Kwak will be on draft at the 18th and Sansom location for $5.50. Bottles of Tripel Karmeliet will be $6.50 and glasses of the Deus are $7.50.
The class with Bosteels and St. Feuillien at the Fermentation School was so popular they’ve added standing room tickets. Currently there are just four tickets remaining.
Tomorrow the Pub on Passyunk East is hosting Van Antwerpen for a Bosteels night. The P.O.P.E will feature Tripel Karmaliet and Kwak on draft plus bottles of Deus from 7 to 11pm. There will also be special desserts (Belgian waffles?) available.
