Celebrate this amazing WORLD-CLASS TRAPPIST BIER in style!

Orval was the first Brett beer to land on US shores, and has become the favorite beer for many star American brewers. ( “Brett” – brettanomyces – is a yeast variety that adds appetizing, sharp acidity and dryness.) Orval sells one beer, brewed to exquisite perfection within the walls of Notre Dame d’Orval Monastery in Belgium. Join us as we celebrate this favored Ale - selling at $2 off the regular price (11.2 oz bottle) and food specials to go with this exquisite brew.

"Orval is a gift passed down through centuries of feast and famine, war and peace, building and destruction. The first gift given by Orval resulted in the bestowing of its identity. The most famous early visitor to this small corner of the Ardennes was the renowned and powerful Countess Mathilda of Tuscany. On a visit to the area, the widow purportedly lost her wedding ring in a spring. She prayed to God for its return when a trout popped up with her ring its mouth. She proclaimed that it was truly a “Val d’Or” or Valley of Gold. In thanks, she promised to provide funds for a religious community which would eventually take her exclamation as its nickname: Orval." (www.ithinkaboutbeer.com)
