2nd Annual Vanberg and DeWulf Coast to Coast Toast

Last year, the Vanberg and DeWulf First Annual Coast-to-Coast Toast became the single largest one-day celebration of Belgian beer culture in the United States in this millennium (good thing the millenium is young). Along with the countless other supporters and VBDW themselves, we are committed to making this year’s party even bigger, and would love for you to join us. 

On Thursday, November 15, ChurchKey will once again be among a group of select Belgophile bars, restaurants, and stores across the nation to raise a glass in celebrating Vanberg and DeWulf’s birthday (back in 1982) and the great state of craft and specialty beer culture in the U.S. of A. 

For this celebration, ChurchKey will feature drafts of almost 30 different brews from Belgium and France, and for this year's gala, they have even gotten our mitts on some of VBDW's imports arriving from Italy and Iceland!

The Belgians are fully stocked. Look for 12 different Brasserie Dupont beers (including rarities like Posca Rustica, Monk's Stout and La Biere de Beloil, as well as a fresh, 2012 batch of their holiday ale, Avec les Bon Voeux), five brews from Brasserie Dubuisson (including the  2012 vintage of Scaldis Noel), three brews from the brand-new and exciting Dilewyns family brewery (including the US debut of their holiday ale Vicaris Winter), and even Vanberg & Dewulf's very own Strong Blonde Ale, Hop Ruiter, which is brewed at the Scheldebrouwerij.

France is coming as well with five Castelain specialties (including the rarities Diversey & Lill(e) and Jade). From Italia, Amiata has kegged up some Contessa, and Iceland will weigh in via Ovisholt who is sending a keg of Lava, their impressive and tasty smoked imperial stout.

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