American Craft Beer Week: Belgian Beer Fest @ Pinthouse Pizza

482562_326909097412785_1188372494_n-1Pinthouse Pizza will present its first ever beer festival this Saturday when they cap off American Craft Beer Week with a tribute to the beers of Belgium. The Belgian Beer Festival will feature 27 breweries, hailing from everywhere from Steenhuffel to Harelbeke, (oh, and from right here in Austin) to pour samples of delicious dubbels, tripels, quads and more. The festival will also feature live music, a craft beer swag raffle and a Jean-Claude Van Damme look-alike contest, because, why not?

Of the notable additions to this solid lineup of breweries,  Brouwerij Rodenbach, which has just entered the Texas market through Keg 1, is of course known for the famed Rodenbach Grand Cru, a Flanders red ale. There are also several breweries, including Brouwerji Verzet and Les 3 Fourquets, which are newly available to Austin courtesy of Christine Celis of Authentic Beverages. American breweries presenting Belgian beers at the festival include Hops & Grain, New Belgium, Ommegang, South Austin and Sierra Nevada. Pinthouse Pizza will also be serving up a special house-brewed Belgian for the festival, a first for the brewpub.

To control the beer-frenzied chaos, the festival will be broken into two separate sessions: noon-4pm and 5-9pm. Both sessions will feature the same festivities and the same 40-50 beers on tap. Tickets are $25 and include a limited edition Pinthouse Pizza Belgian Beerfest glass, one raffle ticket and four beer tickets good for 6 oz. tasters (in accordance with the TABC limit.) Additional beer tickets will be available for $3 cash.

Check out the preliminary beer list below. Some additional surprises still in store! Tickets are available here.

A vorte sante. Op uw gezondheid. Cheers.
