This Saturday, Beer Geeks from near and far will travel to Orlando's Redlight Red Light for Zwanze Day 2012. Our friends at Redlight sent us the following when we asked about this Saturday's globally recognized festivities.
"Redlight Redlight is honored to be one of only 34 bars worldwide to host Cantillon’s Zwanze Day on Saturday, December 1, an event so exciting that for lambic lovers it’s like Christmas, Easter, and the Super Bowl wrapped up together in one beautiful night. This year’s Zwanze ale is a lambic aged with rhubarb, but we will also be tapping a keg of Cantillon Fou’ Foune, which is a lambic aged with apricot, and if these godly nectars aren’t enough, we will be releasing the first ever bottles of Patte de Singe, a saison with tamarind, sage, and Cantillon yeast, brewed as a collaboration between St.Somewhere in Tarpon Springs and our very own Brent Hernandez. If of all that isn’t reason enough to join us on Saturday, we will be pouring glasses of select Cantillon features from the bottle and tapping some of Shelton Brothers’ finest imported winter and Christmas ales."
Long considered one of the finest producers of sour ale on the planet, Cantillon’s Zwanze Day only comes once a year, and unlike Christmas, it doesn’t happen everywhere, so purchase a ticket for a glass of either the Zwanze or Fou’ Foune in advance to make sure that you don’t miss out
on these very rare and highly sought after beers. Tickets are on sale at Redlight Redlight now and
will be available on Saturday if we don’t sell out before hand. We couldn’t be more thrilled to bring Zwanze day to Orlando’s amazing beer community and can’t wait to celebrate it with all of you."
Orlando Beer Guide friend Jj was lucky enough to visit the Cantillon brewery a few years back and was nice enough to share some of his pictures seen below. Thanks Jj!
