Special Vanberg & Dewulf 
Beer Tasting

On Thursday, November 14, 2013, the best specialty beer-centric bars, restaurants, and stores across the country will be raising a glass to celebrate Vanberg & DeWulf’s birthday and the great state of craft and specialty beer culture in the US of A. On this day the most progressive, idiosyncratic, and wonderful retailers and publicans across the USA join hands, and we salute them (i.e. you!). Italy, France, Iceland, the UK and Belgium – along with some 500 hosts joined us last year.
The Coast to Coast Toast™ is the single largest one-day celebration of Belgian beer culture in the United States in this millennium. 

We will taste....
Vicaris Tripel Gueuze...$14.99
One of the most delicious and innovative uses of Lambic in Belgium today. A richly sweet, almost honeyed Tripel made dry and crisp with a complex tannic character by perfectly balanced blending with Gueuze. It’s been a huge hit at the Zythos Festival in Belgium.
Lambickx Kriek Lambic....$19.99
Lambic with Cherries added
The first Kriek Lambic in our LAMBICKX line! Wonderful aroma of almonds, macaroon and cherry stones. Dry, elegant fruit palate. Lightly sparkling to still.
Lambickx de Troch Lambic....$19.99
Brewed: 2011
Bottled: 2013
Bottles produced: 2,479
Barrels: Oak and Chestnut
Tart, notes of lemon, grapefruit, tangerine and wood. Lively palate, cleansing and refreshing.
Lambickx Private Domaine Lambic....$19.99
Bottles produced: 4,159
Barrels: Oak and Chestnut
Rich aroma of nut meats, leather and horse blanket. Exceptionally rounded palate , sherry like.
Lambickx™ is Vanberg &; Famille’s brand of hand-selected and blended lambics. Every Lambic with the Lambickx™ name is made from casks personally tasted and chosen by Don Feinberg, one of the first importers of Belgian beer to America and founder of the first Belgian-only brewery in the U.S. Don chooses his Lambics for their complexity, brilliance and drinking excellence both by themselves and as exquisite accompaniments to food.
Dubuisson Cuvee de Trolls...$10.99
Cuvée des Trolls was introduced in Belgium in 2000 and to the U.S. in 2010. Trolls is Dubuisson’s fastest growing beer. Troll weighs in at only 7% alcohol by volume. Made with
all blond malts and a hint of orange peel, Trolls is hazy blond. It has a lovely, fresh doughy aroma with a light but distinctly malty body, and bright orange notes. It finishes clean with a nice hop bite typical of this brewery’s distinctive beers. A quaffable delight! It has been very popular and, dare we say, helpful with customers seeking a true Belgian beer experience but prefer a less alcoholic and aggressively aromatic profile.
