On Saturday, September 28th from 2pm-2am Birreria Volo is honoured to be one of the 72 selected locations in the world to host Zwanze Day, an annual release of a limited one-off lambic beer made by Brasserie Cantillon. In addition to Zwanze we will host the Bellwoods Witchstock afterparty featuring a handful of participating breweries on tap.
No entrance cost, reservations or advanced tickets. First come, first serve. We expect things to get busy so arrive early (or later after the rush).
From Cantillon: The beer for this year's Zwanze was brewed in March 2016 and kegged January 26th 2018. Contrary to past Zwanze beers, this beer is not the result of a special blend or the addition of a special fruit, but of a wholly unique brew. 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.
