THE BROUWERIJ ’T VERZET SHOWCASE

WEDNESDAY, MARCH 22 @ 5 PM

Join The Sovereign on Wednesday, March 22nd as we welcome Brouwerij 't Verzet. Founded in 2011, Verzet, which translates to “the resistance,” set out to experiment and push boundaries within the slower-moving, traditional Belgian beer scene. On this night, we’ll feature 8 different beers from this hard-to-find artisan Belgian brewer!

Highlights from the evening’s list include a rare keg of Oakey Moakey, which blends a Dry Stout aged 4 months in BenRiach & Laphroig Scotch barrels with their now classic Oud Bruin (which happens to be the only Oud Bruin in Belgium that is not filtered or pasteurized!). And, speaking of Oud Bruin, we will be pouring that flagship offering along with a version that's been finished on grapes!

There is no admission fee for this event. All Verzet beers will be priced individually by the glass and in 4 oz. tasting pours.

ORVAL DAY 2017

SATURDAY, MARCH 25 @ 12 PM

Please visit The Sovereign on Saturday, March 25th as we join better beer bars across the globe in celebrating Orval Day 2017.

One of the most important beers to ever come out of Belgium, Orval is an amber-hued Saison that is dry-hopped, then finished with Brettanomyces. Intensely aromatic and dry, this one-of-a-kind beer is as complex as it is unique.

One of only 11 officially recognized Trappist breweries across the world; all Orval beer is brewed within the walls of Notre Dame d’Orval Monastery.

The alluring complexity of this iconoclastic beer has made it a world classic, one that has inspired a generation of brewers across the globe to craft bone-dry beers of mixed-fermentation.

Come see where it all began, and contribute to a great cause. On this day, Orval will donate proceeds from each bottle sold to MAP International, a non-profit organization that provides aid for people living in impoverished communities.

There is no admission fee for this event, and bottles of Orval will be specially priced.
