    • An Evening of Rodenbach!

      Wednesday Feb 26, 2020 7-9pm

      A very special meet and greet from 7 to 9 PM with Rodenbach’s master Rudi Ghequire. A selection of Rodenbach beers will be on draft and in bottles, and we will also be the first place in America to pour Rodenbach’s first ever collaboration beer, Vivant P’Ocean, created with Dogfish Head. Click below for details.
      PLUS—at 7:30 we’ll open a rare magnum of Rodenbach from the 90s. It is the last one we have. (The last one opened was more than 5 years ago and it was drinking beautifully. Rodenbach brewer Rudi Ghequire was there when this was bottled, so it will be special for him and for us.) So: Buy a Rodenbach between 7 and 7:30 and get a ticket for your chance to try this lovely rare thing. We’ll draw winners at 7:30.
