Many of you may not be familiar with this made up holiday that celebrates the release of a very special beer brewed by highly regarded Belgium brewery, Cantillon.

This year’s Zwanze brew is a spontaneously fermented stout that was aged more than 24 months in Lambic, Cotes du Rhone, and Cognac barrels.

You don’t have to fly to Belgium for this special release. Russian River Brewing Company is one of 50+ breweries that will be tapping the special keg simultaneously at 12pm PST today, September 19th.

Three other Cantillon beers and Russian River’s own Beatification will all be on draft as well. Cantillon will be served in 6 ounce pours, with the Zwanze beer being served in a special glass that you get to keep. The pub opens at 11am and early arrival is highly suggested.
