The Ultimate De Struise Tap Takeover: 17 Rare Drafts + Meet Founders Urbain Cotteau & Philippe Driessens!

ChurchKey is proud to present nearly 20 De Struise brews on draft next Wednesday night, June 26th!

This is by far the most De Struise kegs ever tapped simultaneously in our region, and this massive tap takeover will serve as a fitting welcome party for our old friends Urbain Cotteau & Philippe Driessens, the founders of de Struise from West Flanders, Belgium! This is a can't miss opportunity to taste some of the most impressive Belgian-brewed craft ales in the world, and to hang out with two of the coolest guys in the business. For this very special event, we will be pouring two brand-new De Struise ales, Weltmerz (Session Sour of 3% abv) and Ypres (Flanders Oud Bruin), the fresh batch of De Struise-3 Floyds collaboration Shark Pants, Bourbon Barrel-Aged XXX Rye Tripel, as well as some old favorites like Cuvee Delphine, Black Albert, Pannepot Reserva 2010 and Sint Amatus!

There is no admission fee for this event and all De Struise drafts will be priced individually in 4 oz. pours and by the glass.

Oh...and word has it that the De Struise team will also be conspiring with our very own Bluejacket for some future collaborations while in town ...

About De Struise:
De Struise Brouwers (DSB) is a microbrewery located in Oostvleteren, Belgium. Owners of a nearby ostrich-raising farm in Lo-Reninge with accommodations for vacationers, Urbain Coutteau and Philippe Driessens developed an interest in making distinctive regional beers to serve to their guests. In 2001 they began doing so with help from local wine maker Carlo Grootaert, and this project eventually developed into its own independent commercial concern. Upon its inception in 2003, Struise produced beers at the Caulier brewery in northern Hainaut. Since 2006, they have been made at the Deca brewing facility in Woesten-Vleteren in West Flanders. Today, Struise’s own microbrewery and tasting room is currently open & operational located in a renovated school building in Oostvleteren, Belgium.
