Cantillon Zwanze Day 2014 locations announced for Sept 20

See also

The 4th annual Cantillon Zwanze Day is coming up fast, descending upon over 50 locations in 16 countries across the globe on Saturday, September 20. Each year the event features a unique Cantillon lambic brewed specially for the occasion, available only on draft at one of the locations hand-picked by head brewer and owner Jean Van Roy. The kegs are all tapped simultaneously in each country, with the party lifting off at 9pm Brussels local time (3pm EST).

2014 sees 23 different US-based bars and breweries getting the nod, including some of the country's most popular craft beer outfits such as Crooked Stave, Hill Farmstead and Russian River. The tri-state area is ripe with options again this year, including Monk's Cafe in Philadelphia, Spuyten Duyvil in Brooklyn and Alewife in Queens.

While the official Zwanze lambic has not been confirmed, rumors point to 2014's release being a lightly dry-hopped version of blended 3-year-old Iris and Kriek (which sounds amazing). Keep checking in with Cantillon for more details as they roll in. Previous years have included fruit lambic brewed with Pineau d’Aunis grapes (2011), organic rhubarb lambic (2012) and top-fermented abbey ale blended with lambic (2013).
