Unibroue Night @ BJ's Brea

I got this in my email tonight and wanted to pass it on. If you're in SoCal you may want to figure out a good way to get here for this event.

Our topic for next Tuesday’s Beer Appreciation Night in Brea was originally “Great Craft Beers of Canada”. My plan was to feature the beers of Unibroue, which I consider to be the best brewer of Belgian-style ales outside of Belgium. This craft brewery located in Chambly, Quebec, is dedicated to traditional Belgian brewing methods and brews a range of unique and creative beers. I had some concerns about what else from Canada to pour because I figured they would pale in comparison to the wonderful beers of Unibroue. But my concerns went away when Unibroue’s sales rep Michael Smith told me how many beers he could secure for our event. More than enough to make it an All-Unibroue Beer Appreciation Night! Thanks to Michael, we’ll even be lucky enough to taste several vintage Unibroue Anniversary Beers from his personal stash and the brand new commemorative beer Quatre-Centienne!

Here's the delectable Unibroue lineup:
  • Blanche de Chambly
  • Don de Dieu
  • Ephemere Apple
  • Maudite
  • La Fin du Monde
  • Chambly Noire
  • Trois Pistoles
  • Terrible
  • Quatre-Centieme

…and FOUR Anniversary Beers (we’ll keep the vintages a surprise)!
