I know, I know. What happened to Wednesday? Before you ask…No, DFWHops Team didn’t drink themselves into a stupor Tuesday night and sleep through Wednesday. Instead, it was busy busy busy, and then a chance to relax in the evening. The choice was sit around writing about beer…or go out and drink some beer. Easy choice! Especially with Belgian Beer Week in full swing and rare offerings like Duvel Single on tap at places like the Moth and Saucer, with St Bendardus Tripel at the Moth, La Trappe Quad at the Holy Grail and a little Stone IRS left on tap at the Common Table, too. ( No, its not Belgian, its just delicious. )
Anyway, onto Thursday. We’re closing in on the end of Belgian Beer Week, and the deliciousness just keeps flowing.
Today, the Flying Saucer is offering Chimay on tap in Addison, though they don’t specify which of the three. In Fort Worth they’ve got Chimay Cinq Cents, and on the Lake it’s Blanche De Bruxelles.
Over at the various Ginger Man Pubs, they’ve also got unspecific Chimay in Dallas and Fort Worth. Up in Plano, they’ve giving out the rare and coveted ceramic Maredsous Chalices, as well as Chimay Glassware. Sweet!
The Holy Grail has Duvel glassware, not sure which Duvel glass it might be. Better go find out! And rumors abound that they’re also tapping a rare cognac-aged Scaldis at 6 pm, as well.
The Common table’s going to be doing a Belgian Independence Day Celebration featuring flights of Belgian Ales, belgian inspired food, and live jazz. Nice!
And today, as they’re doing all week long, the Moth is offering great Belgian Ales on tap including St Bernardus Tripel, which by the way is fantastic. They’re also offering special Belgian food and beer pairings, something different each night.
