Below is a list of many of the beers to be tapped:

Struise Pannepot Reserva

In the early 1900s, the village of De Panne, close to the French border, was famous for two things -- the ‘Pannepots,’ or fishing boats, that could be seen along the coast, and the unique dark ale enjoyed by the local fishermen. This Ale is a tribute to these hardy sailors and their rich, flavorful brew. 10% abv

Struise Black Albert

Black Albert was brewed and crafted with a 100% Belgian ingredients. Pours a blacker than black beer with an inch of dark tan head that lingers as it cascades into itself. Nice aroma of bitter-sweet chocolate, fresh torrified coffee beans, barley, candy sugar, complex fruits, and floral hops. 13% ABV

Struise Cuvée Delphine

Black Albert was used in a new barrel aging project. More than a year ago, Carlo was able to get his hands on a stock of Four Roses Bourbon barrels, and we happily filled them up with Batch "0". You will not find this ale all over the globe. 13% ABV

Struise Rio Reserva

This ale was brewed back in 2008, and in collaboration with brew master Rychei Sugawa San from Rio Brewing & Co. Our goal was to brew a Belgian dark golden blond quadrupel with an enormous potential of aromas and flavors, and added complexity due to oak barrel aging. Bourbon barels from Kentucky were chosen due to their very special soft roast quality and noble vanilla flavors. 11% ABV

Struise St. Amatus - Oostvleteren 12

Saint Amatus, also called St. Aimé, was a Benedictine monk. In Belgium, Oostvleteren is the only parish to patron St Amatus as saint. Struise started brewing at Deca in Vleteren early 2006, we ankered ourselves by starting the development of our own micro brewery in Oostvleteren during 2009. Saint Amatus has aged on Woodford Reserve barrels from Labrot & Graham, Kentucky USA. 10.5% ABV

Djævlebryg Pride of Nekron

This beer is worthy of the Dark Lord. In both smell and taste it is a true orgy of the senses: Burnt, bitter and sweet. Savory and warming, full bodied and complex. Pride of Nekron is simply put a majestic meal in itself. 10.5% abv

De La Senne/Moeder Lambic Band of Brothers S01E01

A collaboration beer between Moeder Lambic and Brasserie De La Senne. Exclusively on draft at Moeder Lambic and at selected bars around the world. Brewed with Challenger, Styrian Golding and Admiral hops. 4% ABV

Trois Dames Oud Bruin

Born of a chance encounter with a stout and strong fermentation of Valais apricots which never reached the alembic distiller which it was intended, our Oud Bruin (Flemish for "old brown") is an interpretation rather unorthodox Belgian cousins. 7.2% ABV

Nøgne Ø Citrus Hystrix IPA

Citrus Hystrix is an attempt to put new and wonderful flavors in an IPA. To do this we added, rye, oats, kaffir lime and some tangerine juice! Taste profile of this IPA is developed in cooperation with chef Trond Moi. 7.5% ABV

Mikkeller Saphir Wet Hop Pale Ale

Made with fresh German Saphir hops. 5.5% ABV

There are a few more to come and we are still working out some other fun, cool details, so check back on our website for final details closer to the event.
