2019 Zwanze Day at Jester King

2019 Zwanze Day at Jester King is this Saturday, September 28th at Noon! Zwanze Day is when Brasserie Cantillon in Brussels, Belgium simultaneously releases a special beer at over 40 locations around the world. Jester King is honored and grateful to be one of the locations.

Here's Cantillon's description of 2019 Zwanze:

"On March 1st 2016, we brewed a smoked Lambic using a blend of classic pilsner malt and smoked malt. Rather than taking the beer to an extreme, we looked instead to find a balance between the acidic character of Lambic and the woodiness of the smoked malt. The result is a fine Gueuze with the classic notes of a Cantillon, complemented by an elegant smokiness in the nose and on the palate."

Our format will be the same as last year (non-ticketed event open to the public). 2019 Zwanze will be tapped world-wide at 2pm CST. Tapping times for all other Cantillon beers (listed below) will be at Noon:

Classic Gueuze

Magic Lambic




We're also pleased to have Classic Gueuze and Kriek bottles to go starting at Noon. We'll have 90 bottles of Classic Gueuze (750ml x $28) and 30 bottles of Kriek (750ml x $32). Limit one bottle per guest on each beer (two bottles total).

We'll have a special lineup up Jester King beers and guest beers, which we'll announce later this week. Plus, as always, there will be a few surprises!

In addition to a full food menu, our kitchen will be serving smoked cheesesteaks on house-made hoagie rolls with piperade queso!

We'll have Zwanze Day glassware and t-shirts available for purchase.

We kindly ask that guests not bring in outside alcohol.

We hope you join us for a fun 2019 Zwanze Day at Jester King!
